Mast Climbing Workplatform

Technical Specifications: MSHF | MSM

The mast climbing workplatform is a combination of scaffold, material hoist and building cradle, providing safe and efficient access to the building surface.

It transports workers and materials to precisely the height required; loads of up to 3.5 tonnes can be carried up to a height of 200 meters. Height and length can be adjusted quickly and conveniently. The workplatform can be used in a single mast configuration with platform length from 2.7m to 10.1m or in a twin configuration with platform length from 8.2m to 23.2m. The masts are anchored at 6 – 8m intervals. With the MSHF unit, a freestanding height of up to 20m can be achieved when mounted on a chassis.

Perfect solution for:

  • For installation of cladding, curtain-walling, window replacement, concrete and brickwork repairs, painting work
  • On tall facades, towers, chimneys or structures
  • Whenever conventional scaffolding takes too long to erect or proves to be too expensive for short periods
  • Whenever scaffolding just would not carry the load

The workplatform provides ample space for workers, their materials and equipment. It can be adapted to virtually any elevation, taking into account recesses, balconies, landings and corners. Extension of 3 meters from the platform can be achieved.

In addition, the platform makes it possible to use materials such as bricks, mortar cladding sheets, etc., directly within arms’ reach. Bending and stretching are no longer necessary.


  • Rapid erection and dismantling
  • Hoist and workplatform as one unit
  • Loads can be carried up to heights in excess of 200m
  • Spot-on positioning to any height required, millimeter by millimeter
  • Convenient working without obstructions from scaffold tubes or fittings
  • Time and cost savings
  • Providing safe and efficient access to the building surface. Unauthorized access to buildings are eliminated

Super Sturdy and safe in every way

The workplatform itself is extremely stable and satisfies the most stringent safety requirements for the transport of people and materials.

Powerful drive motors
All drive units are fitted with twin independent 2.1 kW motor gearboxes positioned beneath the platform decking for greater protection. In addition, keeping the workplace unrestricted.

Safe centrifugal brakes
The twin centrifugal brakes on each drive unit allow the platform to be simply and safely lowered to the ground in the event of power failure without the use of any special tools.

Unique leveling system
Automatic electro-mechanical leveling system for twin mast platforms fitted as standard on all drive units.

Sturdy mobile chassis or compact ground-frame
Platforms can be mounted on mobile chassis to move around the perimeter of the building to increase production. Where space is restricted, compact ground frames are used which require minimum ground area.

Reliable and flexible anchor system
The Hek adjustable anchor allows the mast to be fixed at any location on the building. Five to six times fewer anchors compared with traditional scaffolding.

Simple assembly
The mast selections for both the MSHF & MSM Super can be installed without the use of traditional lifting equipment.

Safety features:
Double limit switches on top and bottom
– Proximity switch during erection
– Emergency stop pushbutton on main panel
– Control power 42V
– Safety fencing with wire mesh and toeboard (height 1.10m)
– Mast surround fencing
– Top mast section without rack. Prevents overrun.

Passenger & Material Hoist

CME also supplies passenger hoist, which have proven to be an ideal and versatile solution for various applications in the building industry.

With capacity of 1200, the hoist is ideal for all types of construction sites. With speeds of 40m/min, the hoists are perfect for low or high-rise projects, new buildings or the renovation of older buildings.

The cabin is ergonomically designed to provide clear entry and exit without obstructions. Fully surrounded by open steel mesh with vertical gates at both ends of the cabin. All gates are fitted with micro-switches to ensure they are fully closed before movement of the hoist. Sealed load cells are fitted as an added protection against overload. The powerful motor/gear boxes that are fitted with disc brakes are extremely reliable and smooth running, especially when starting and stopping. The masts are fully compatible with those of the HEK mast climbing workplatforms thus offering savings in capital outlay without losing capability. Square profile steels section throughout, galvanized inside and out together with unique nylatron rollers provides for outstanding machine life, durability and load carrying capacity. PLA hoists are designed to meet and exceed the highest international safety standards.
