An Introduction To Stationary Platforms

There are many kinds of platforms that specialise in different functions and for different purposes. The stationary platform is one of the simplest but versatile platforms used not just in constructing buildings, but also for some specific or dedicated use.

Kinds of Stationary Platforms

1. Steel Platform – Steel platform is made by cold shaping structural class sheet of steel with a repetitious parallel rib pattern. Its durability and stiffness is made possible by the pattern made in the ribs as well as by its steel material properties. This platform is normally attached to the building with a frame. Fastening platform sheets are done by screwing, crimping, or welding them together.

2. Floor Platform – Floor platforms function to stabilize the building frames. It serves as a concrete support carrying the design weight during the lifetime of the building. It is either zinc-coated galvanized or painted/phosphatised but the upper part is left bare prior to placing concrete.

3. Roof Platform – This acts as a support to the building’s horizontal and vertical loads by transferring weight into the building’s frame. It aids the building’s thermal insulation boards sufficiently as well. Standard roof platforms are usually galvanized or superiorly painted so that it can be expected to last a long time.

4. Cellular Platform – It is a kind of platform used as part of the electrical distribution mechanism of the building. The seam that it creates (between platform panels and bottom expanses) is where electrical, telephone and computer wires are organized. Interiors must be freed from sharp intrusions to prevent damages to the wires. When used as a platform roof, the bottom plate is normally left exposed.

5. Form Platform – The methods in attaching this platform are the same with floor and roof platforms. Furnishings are either galvanized, paint coated or uncoated.

Stationary Platform Benefits

Stationary platforms are already size-fitted to the support posts so that their installation and uninstallation are both easier to do. This platform supports heavy weights and bulk loads of up to double its weight. It can be used as a material and personnel hoist, and because of that, it makes the work deliverance easier. It is easily accessed by forklifts, trolleys and dolly systems.

Its legs are adjustable to conform to a variety of structural forms such as narrow walls. Stationary platforms can also act like an overhead platform that serves as protection from falling objects for people directly below or in the surrounding of the construction site. Finally, by using multiple platforms even on the highest level of the building, it helps cut down costs while increasing safety.

The superior quality and design of stationary platforms are engineered to complement construction needs, thus they guarantee safety and manageability. A variety of platforms can cater to whatever purposes and functions a building structure needs.

But above all, since stationary platforms are mostly installed on higher areas of the building being constructed, alertness is of primary importance. Structural frames should be securely attached. Access areas should be free from unnecessary materials. Some parts of the frames can be sharp so personnel should always take precaution and wear safety gears. And never undertake unnecessary moves, decisions or deviations from the instructions of an expert.
