Following a series of highly successful open days throughout the UK showcasing their innovative Plettac METRIX system scaffold to industry professionals, TRAD Hire & Sales Ltd, the UK’s leading scaffold supplier, have now launched the system in their Andover Depot, along with their new temporary roof system, ALTRIX.
The Plettac METRIX system, which is already available from several of TRAD Hire & Sales Ltd’s other depots, is a galvanised tubular system whose colour coded horizontal members are divisible along both bay length and width. This gives the system a huge advantage over other systems, massively increasing the versatility and adaptability.
A further benefit of Plettac METRIX is that the system incorporates an optional integral SG4:15 compliant Permanent Advanced Guardrail. Erected from the lift below, the guardrail allows scaffolders to erect and dismantle in complete safety.
The feedback received from the industry is positive, scaffolding and construction firms who are already using the system are reinforcing the above benefits and quoting labour saving and significantly reduced assembly times.
Plettac use the latest 3D modelling and stress analysis software along with state-of-the-art manufacturing to produce a modern system which conforms to BS EN 12810 & 12811, has passed the NASC’s rigorous audit for the Scaffold Product Code of Practice and has CISRS approval.
Adam Whately, Operations Manager at the Andover depot, speaks about the system:
“If you want speed, safety and adaptability, you cannot better Plettac METRIX. I’m proud to be able to demonstrate it here at Andover. As you can use extra vertical members within the bay it is uniquely adaptable, meaning the scaffold appears to be specifically made for the project. It is a fantastic addition to the already first-class choice of scaffolding products we have here at TRAD Hire & Sales Ltd Andover.”
The ALTRIX Temporary Roof System is an all-aluminium weather protection system which has been designed to work with any scaffold type, but compliments Plettac METRIX perfectly.
Following the same scheme as Plettac METRIX, the components are colour-coded making them easily identifiable. Being aluminium, the components are extremely light-weight; this along with Push-Fit technology enables quicker assembly times.
The ALTRIX system philosophy is “more than just a roof”; many of the components have been designed with dual roles in mind, meaning they can be used in other scaffolding applications. For example: forming gantries and bridged sections.
Following the success of the open days, TRAD Hire & Sales Ltd will be setting up a Plettac METRIX and ALTRIX demonstration area at their Andover depot for customers to view the products for themselves. The demonstration area will be a permanent fixture and anyone interested in the products are encouraged to come and experience them first hand.
