Achieving higher productivity with the Alimak MC 450 mast climbing work platform

The Alimak MC 450 represents innovation and efficiency in mast climbing work platforms. This model exemplifies a perfect blend of strength, versatility, and user-friendly design, making it indispensable for various construction and renovation applications.

Key Features

Robust Design and Superior Build Quality
The Alimak MC 450 is built with high-grade, galvanised structural materials, ensuring durability and compliance with the latest safety standards. This robust design supports substantial loads, with a maximum payload capacity of 2,500 kg (5,512 lbs) for a single mast and 5,500 kg (12,125 lbs) for a twin mast configuration.

Flexible and Adaptable Platform
One of the MC 450’s standout features is its adaptable platform size. The platform length can range from 4.2 metres (13’9″) to 10.2 metres (33’5½”) for single configurations and up to 30.2 metres (99′) for twin configurations. This flexibility, combined with adjustable widths, allows it to meet the specific needs of various projects.

Enhanced Productivity
The Alimak MC 450 significantly enhances productivity by transporting personnel and materials to heights of up to 200 metres (656 feet) at 8 to 9.6 metres per minute (26 to 32 feet per minute). This capability ensures that tools, equipment, and a full day’s production can be lifted to the working level in one trip, reducing downtime and increasing operational efficiency.

Safety and Ergonomics
Safety is paramount in Alimak’s design philosophy. The MC 450 adheres to the strictest safety standards, featuring a reliable control system and ergonomic operation. The platform is designed to be used as a work platform to carry out work on the facade, such as bricklaying, facade cladding and window installations. It helps to ensure that heavy tools and materials are always within easy reach. The absence of obstructive scaffold poles enhances visibility and reliability, creating a safer and more comfortable working environment.

Operational efficiency is a core advantage of the MC 450. The logistical ease provided by this work platform translates to significant cost savings. It is an efficient and ergonomic alternative to scaffolding for work on the facade of a structure, providing enhanced levels of safety. It reduces the need for multiple trips and minimises interruptions, leading to lower operational costs and higher productivity.
