Dismantle of hoists often presents more challenges than the installation due to changing site conditions and access routes. A pre-dismantle site visit is usual before our trained engineers start the dismantle and removal of the hoist.
We place as much importance on the dismantle and collection of hoists as on their delivery and installation. At a time when many sites are nearing completion, it is essential that the hoist is removed swiftly and safely after other trades have finished lifting all required materials.
If the dismantle and collection of the hoist is not straightforward, our site supervisor will carry out a site inspection and identify any problems or obstacles to getting the hoist out; for example there may have been a tower crane available for the installation which has since been dismantled and removed.
The dismantle of slipform hoists follows a set procedure whereby the tower crane is used to dismantle the mast sections and release the tie tubes from the mast down to ground level. A person riding basket is then attached to the crane and this is used to remove the tie tubes and plates from the core. Collection of the dismantled equipment is made using our palfinger equipped rigid vehicles at agreed times.
