Safety Tower

Protec was developed to meet a very specific brief – create a platform system to go in to those places metal towers can’t.It’s made from glass re-enforced plastic (GRP), which makes it non-corrosive, non-conductive and spark resistant. Because of that, it’s perfect for those situations where it simply wouldn’t be safe for a metal tower to be. Electric lines in the Rail sector, Off-shore rigs in the Petrochemical industry, highly charged production lines in manufacturing plants. All are being safely served by custom designed Protec systems day in, day out.

Taking Care of Business
There’s more to Protec than the fact that it’s non conductive. It’s also incredibly clean. This may seem a strange boast to anyone involved in heavy industry, but it’s the fact that Protec stays clean which makes it the perfect system for a wide range of additional applications. The food industry, for example, or the retail sector. Heritage and Conservation sites. Situations that have working at height needs, but which also have to think about dust free, hygienic solutions.

Alutec Abundance

From huge docking systems for commercial airliners, to the stage sets you see on TV, Alutec is, quite simply, everywhere. Strong flexible and light, the aluminium access system we’ve been constantly developing since 1977 keeps workers safe in so many different industries, taking on unique, custom made shapes to fit over/under/around almost anything you care to put in front/behind/on-top of it.

Practical & Safe

From fixed installations in engineering and manufacturing plants, to portable access platforms that can be wheeled into position as and when needed, the Alutec system has a massive range of practical applications and meets every known safety regulation. It’s the obvious solution to the majority of workplace platform needs.


Planet Platforms has launched its brand new mobile trailer scissor lift TP9000 to give access users a safe, flexible and truly autonomous machine. Following on from its successful unveiling at 2007's Executive Hire Show, the TP9000 has a host of safety features, options and accessories with the most attractive being 'no need for a trailer for transport'.


ImageRolls Royce has taken delivery of the first AIRdeck intelligent access platforms from work at height specialist Planet Platforms.
Developed specifically for the application, the eight AIRdeck units facilitate the stringent final inspection process of the 500, 700, 800 and 900 Trent Series aviation engines at Rolls Royce's Civil Aerospace Customer Delivery Centre (CDC) in Derby, UK.
One AIRdeck system is made up of two pre-set heights (3No.) hydraulic scissor packs, platforms positioned in a parallel configuration.
