Mast climbing work platforms (MCWPs) are the preferred method of access in a number of trades, with masonry being one of the most significant. MCWPs consist of a horizontal platform driven up and down on a vertical mast by electric or gasoline motors using rack and pinion technology or hydraulic cylinders for lifting.

One mast can raise platforms up to 60 feet long to heights of several hundred feet. Heavy loads (up to 10,000-pound capacity) are lifted on a single stable, spacious working platform. People and materials are delivered to the exact point on the façade where needed at the touch of a button. For these reasons, mason contractors have been increasingly using mast climbers to provide enormous increases in their productivity, while lowering costs.

Mast climbers are flexible, economical, productive, and intrinsically safer than most scaffolding systems. With the combination of these factors, plus their stability at height, users are quickly realizing the benefits of these systems and becoming comfortable working on them. While use continues to grow in the U.S., guidance on the safe operation of the product has not matched the pace of development.

Leading the effort

The International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) is leading a drive for higher standards of use, training, and assessment of these systems.
