The Skaftray, designed and built in the UK, can be added to any podium steps to improve safety and productivity.
Users of podium steps have long improvised methods for holding and storing tools and materials while working at heights. As a result, fellow workers and innocent bystanders have been at risk to falling objects as the user juggled to keep everything in place while trying to complete the task in hand.
Health and safety inspectors regularly criticised the practice of precariously balancing items on wooden or makeshift planks placed across the top of the access equipment. The developers of Skaftray had been struck by how often they had witnessed such scenes and decided there had to be a better way.
Safety aside, the amount of time wasted while a site operative climbs to the top of the tower only to discover they have left vital bits of equipment at the bottom and has to clamber back down again is addressed thereby improving productivity.
Light in weight, but able to hold a recommended load of 20kg, Skaftray is manufactured in the UK using HDPE which is 100% recyclable. It can be fitted to any standard podium steps. It is slotted over the tower side rails, adjusted to fit any dimension of rail and then latched using a simple securing device at one end. This means that, even if the tray is moved at one side, it will remain secured in position to avoid accidents.
It is spacious enough to contain large tools and materials, relatively large pieces of equipment and general items for all manner of construction, maintenance and repair tasks.
Skaftray has been independently load tested.
