Customized Suspended Platforms - tailored to meet requirements in irregular building construction

The custom shape suspended platform is a kind of non-standard suspended platform with special specifications and is tailored to meet requirements in the construction of irregular buildings. The custom shape suspended platform is lightweight, of high utility, high security, and of reasonable price. Its main part can be freely moved and restructured, making it convenient and efficient to complete construction and maintenance work of irregular buildings.

Customized solutions for Rope Suspended Platforms

New Age offers customized solutions for Rope Suspended Platforms with higher safety features. Its L-type (90 degree), C-Shape, Curve-Shape, W-Shape, Square-Shape, Round-shape, Multiple Front Extension Platforms, Front Extension (fixed/ folding) and multiple modifications in Suspension Mechanism/ Parapet Clamping/ Wall Brackets are highly appreciated by the trendsetters in the construction segment.

Rope Suspended Platform (RSP), commonly known as Gondola (or cradle/ or RSP), is an electrically operated, temporarily installed suspended access equipment, and a manned facility for working at heights, by relying on a movable platform driven by a motor. It is designed to suspend along the vertical surface of the building by steel wire ropes through the suspension mechanism placed at the top of the building. It is a kind of non-regular suspended access equipment that features strong construction adaptability, higher construction height, less occupation of construction land, high construction efficiency, easy erection, and less number of workers.

Rope Suspended Platforms - efficient solution for vertical transport

RSPs are now widely used in India for working at heights for installation of billboards, windows, window cleaning, external renovation, plastering, painting, decoration of bridges, buildings, chimneys, silos and other structures. They are an easy-to-use and efficient solution for vertical transport. Utilizing decades of engineering experience, New Age has developed a safe modular system that makes it easy to quickly adjust the platform’s dimensions and shape to the current needs.

Earlier, Suspended Platforms meant a 7.5-m straight structure design, but now New Age has changed the concept by developing different designs of RSP in its factory at Rajkot. The RSPs were installed at various (tall) structures and received remarkable appreciation for their safety, convenience and quality. When designing and fabricating suspended platforms, New Age focuses on quality and reliability, using first-class materials and components that guarantee long lifecycles, outstanding durability, and wear resistance - all of which lead to higher safety, faster work and higher productivity.

Customization in Rope Suspended Platforms

L-Shape (90 degree) RSP: 12 nos. of L-shape RSP were operated at L&T- Grand Central, Navi Mumbai site by facade contractors. The working of straight RSP was a failure due to the 900-mm curve shape reeds on multiple locations on the external walls. Even the front overhang was extended up to 2.5- m to cover reeds areas.

Other sites: Bangalore, Pune, Ideal-Kolkata, TATA-Bangalore.

Square Shape RSP: This is a unique design of suspended platform proposed for the first time for BG SHRKE site in Mumbai for duct areas. Later, the same design was accepted by L&T-Bombay Dyeing, L&T-Minerva and Marathon Monte South for lift-shaft areas. This machine is easily accessible for all four walls of the shaft. Now, the people can work easily at all four walls and at the same time, without any shifting of machine. This machine is designed to reduce time and shifting cost. It is faster than any other arrangements and is considered a revolution in the industry. Bamboos, H-frames or any other standard RSP cannot replicate the importance of Square Shape gondolas.

Curve-Shape RSP: This type of machine is especially used for chimneys and silos. It is required for repainting, painting, cleaning and maintaining the round walls of silos.

Sites: JK Cement, Karnataka, JK Laxmi Cement, Rajasthan, Chambal Fertilizer Chemical, Kota.

10 MTR RSP: Normally, a 7.5-m standard RSP is used at construction sites. Now, think about a dead wall with a width of 10-11m and building height of approximately 150m. It means a shifting required for covering width of 11m area. In such a scenario, New Age introduced a 10m length of RSP to cover the dead wall work in a single time without any shifting. This machine was designed with all advance safety devices and it reduced a huge time gap and cost as well. The machine was proposed for the first time at Lodha New Cuffe Parade site to its painting contractors. Later, the machine was used successfully at Wadhwa-54, Lodha Amara, Mumbai and some other sites.

Front Extension RSP: There are two types of front extensions in platforms: the first is fixed extension and the other is flexible mechanism. Both the mechanisms are very useful for working at difficult sites and have got a very positive response for repainting works at old residential societies. We changed the dimensions of the front extension as required from site to site and helped our clients in their project completion.

Sites: Emami City, Kolkata, Happyville & Waterfront projects, W.B., L&T, Vapi, Bharatiya City, Bangalore and many others.

Round-Shape RSP: The concept of Round-Shape platform was first introduced by New Age in India for chimneys’ internal works. We developed and installed a round shape platform at a Neyveli, Tamil Nadu, site for 300m working height, 3-ton loading capacity and 6.8m diameter.
