Construction Access Systems
The CAS Common Tower and Integrated Staircase System was designed primarily for the needs and demand of a modern-day high-rise construction market. Due to its modular design it can be used for various applications in different markets – see below to find out more.
A construction team working on a high-rise tower in a restricted city location will require the most effective access system available for getting personnel and materials to the workface. A CAS Common Tower System together with a range of mid and high-speed hoists is designed and installed to provide the optimum access solution.
Some high-rise building are completely refurbished to bring them in line with the latest environmental and energy standards to provide a modern up-to date look. An example of this is the Centrepoint Tower refurbishment in London. A CAS Common Tower system and mid-speed hoisting provide by Alimak Group provided the best solution on a very tight site in one of the busiest areas in central London.
The modular design of the CAS Common Tower system lends itself for use as a loading dock. Materials can be loaded directly from a lorry trailer onto the loading dock or storage area. Loads of 5kN per square metre can be applied to the loading dock deck.
Ports and Shipyards
CAS have developed a Ship Access Tower for use in ports and shipyards for the use in a dry dock. The Tower utilises the modular CAS Common Tower System and includes an internal staircase and an Alimak hoist that is located on a base within the Common Tower structure. The whole structure can be lifted as one and moved into position.
