Safe, durable and efficient: Manufacturing, construction professionals and facilities managers can say goodbye to complicated and time-consuming scaffold structures with PAXTower, an innovative new modular tower system. The new range, launched in February 2022 by leading access equipment specialist ZARGES, is equipped with a range of new features to make working at height safer and easier than ever before.
With both user convenience and versatility at the forefront of its design, the PAXTower offers the perfect all-in-one solution for carrying out maintenance work or jobs at height within a factory or site setting.
The easy-to-assemble and easy-to-use structure ensures that maximising productivity on site is readily achievable, while guaranteeing the ultimate user safety. The adjustable 7.6m working height provides access, making it suitable for a variety of different applications; while the stringently tested and ergonomic design, in accordance with the latest EN1004 standards, ensures safe working at all times.
To assemble, users simply fold out the base frame until it clicks into place. When building the tower to higher levels, a specially designed slot-in spigot with interlock clips prevents tilting when connecting the end frames, enabling a smooth build. Once constructed, components stay securely and firmly in place and can be released using simple mechanisms. Its sturdy, flexible construction and quick assembly make the PAXTower the perfect product for frequent and trade users.
Neil Harper, Sales Manager at ZARGES, said: “At the outset of designing the PAXTower range, our number one priority was, as always, making our products easier and safer to use.”
“Not only is PAXTower fully compliant with the latest European standards, but it also includes a range of new features introduced specifically for and enhancing safety and timesaving. This enables users to spend less time assembling equipment, and also be able to focus on the job at hand with the peace of mind that they are using a product that is safe.”
The PAXTower will be available in Through the Trapdoor (3T) build version, with the option to build up to a platform height of 5.6m to 7.6m. Its 1.80 by 0.60m platform can withstand loads of up to 208 kilograms, while the specially designed guardrail features foldable arms to make the component compact for easy storage and transportation. The 3T braced version provides 360° protection at all times and ensures complete stability.
Three new features enhance the folding frame’s ease of use and speed, as Neil explains: “Smooth running slip-on guides made of hard plastic, known as spigots, make connecting push-on frames a cinch. Through a clever mechanism, the toe board moves into the right position almost by itself. And set-up is just as easy; simply fold it out – the frame gives a satisfying click when secured into place.”
