Safway Services LLC has been awarded a patent for its QuikDeck Suspended Access System, a modular platform system that can be built in the air and configured to fit almost any shape or size.

QuikDeck

“QuikDeck has become a popular access solution because customers realize the significant reduction in material costs, savings in shipping, and the reduced erection and dismantle time,” said Jerry Dolly, Bridge Division Manager.

“QuikDeck can also be used in conjunction with a number of Safway’s other scaffolding products, allowing workers to reach a number of access points at the same time for maximum efficiency.”

Beyond Ground-Based Access

QuikDeck was invented to provide access where ground-based systems are not possible or practical. The system is designed for use on bridges, in shipyards, in boilers, on offshore rigs and platforms, in atriums, and as temporary stages and walkways.

The platform has a load capacity of more than 75 pounds per square foot and a flat surface. Safway says QuikDeck  meets or exceeds federal safety and health requirements and meets OSHA requirements under 29 CPR 1926.

The manufacturer says that assembly of the system requires no special tools or skills and that components can be easily handled by one person. The system can be built in the air or on the ground and then hoisted into position.  Equipment can be leapfrogged and relocated as work progresses.

Founded in 1936, Waukesha, WI-based Safway Services LLC provides scaffolding and access equipment, services, training and rentals through 85 locations across North America.
