Next generation platform technology
The HARDIDECK™ Platform is a revolutionary new product from Samson Equipment which has been designed as a cross-over between a fixed and a retractable crane loading platform. It has taken the advantages of both types of system and combined them to produce a solution that is truly unique.
As with a retractable platform, Hardideck’s can be installed in a vertical ‘stack’ directly above one another allowing the remainder of the building to be closed up, however, unlike the retractable platform, the deck finishes flush with the floor slab eliminating the need for a ramp and the loss of headroom when installing tall objects such as bathroom pods.
Hardideck achieves this by the clever use of a detachable ‘Outboard’ section which can be lifted up or down to the required floor level and then connected to a pre-installed ‘Inboard’ section. This has the advantage of never having to relocate the whole platform to another level as the ‘Inboard’ sections remain in place at all times .
Relocation of the ‘Outboard’ section to another level takes less than 2 minutes and as all actions are carried out from within the safety of the ‘Inboard’ section, there is no need for safety harnesses as operatives are never exposed to an open edge.
Crane utilization is vastly increased as the operator is always picking from the same position so loads can be landed that much quicker increasing productivity on site.
Hardideck’s can be installed in a vertical ‘stack’ directly above one another allowing the remainder of the building to be closed up, but unlike the retractable platform, the deck finishes flush with the floor slab so there’s no ramp or loss of headroom.
The ability to relocate just the ‘Outboard’ section of the Hardideck to different floor levels without ever exposing operatives to an open edge, makes the Hardideck an incredibly safe platform system to use.
A flush to floor deck allows tall objects such as pre-fabricated bathroom pods to be easily installed between floor plates with no loss of headroom, this also allows for easier tranportation into and away from the structure.
