Meet the Pro Series
The Pro Series consists of work platform sections interlocked with a Pro Bar System and constructed of tube steel trusses supported on two steel tower masts. Each tower in cross section has overall dimensions of 16 inches X 16 inches. The towers are assembled from five-foot-long sections that are bolted together. They are supported on a chassis, which has four outriggers, two located toward the building and two on the side of the chassis, opposite the building.
The Pro Series work platforms may be used in a freestanding configuration or in a “tied” mast configuration. The maximum, free-standing height is 35 feet. In the tied mast configuration, lateral struts are installed between the tower mast and the building structure every 20 feet. In this configuration, the maximum tower height is 250 feet nominal. The allowable uniform load for the Pro Series is 20,000 pounds.
The 60-foot-long Pro Series bearing bridge consists of work platform sections constructed of steel trusses and interlocked with the Pro Bar System. The platform interior sections are available in four-foot and eight-foot lengths, while the exterior bearing sections are available in six-foot lengths.
