The LOBO System in use across Maintenance, Cleaning and Process Industries.

One key problem is maintenance

Food processing machines are often difficult to access for maintenance or cleaning tasks. Traditional scaffolding or aluminium tower systems could be used, but as they cannot be quickly or easily assembled, they cannot be deployed from one machine to another.
For this reason they do not meet the industry’s changing requirements. Outsourced scaffolding labour is expensive and not available 24/7. Aluminium frame systems are cumbersome and inflexible and will not adjust to fit into awkward areas. When not in use, they take up a lot of space and cannot be easily transported around the production areas. Regular access to elevated areas, for example, above conveyors, is awkward and difficult to reach.

LOBO is the solution. The LOBO Work Platform System, utilising its unique patented clamp, can be reconfigured and adjusted, without the need for tools, into any shape or size required, it’s a simple and quick scafold system. This simple system can be assembled by anyone, “Scaffolding for Non Scaffolders” is one phrase to consider,as the components are modular. LOBO’s steel legs and components can be flat packed when not in use and transported easily for storage or utilisation elsewhere.

Your own in-house maintenance crews can assemble the LOBO System quickly, easily and safely around, under and above machinery or conveyors. As an advanced platform system it means outsourced scaffolding labour costs can be reduced, or made completely  redundant without comprising safety. Areas previously considered difficult to get to can now be LOBO accessed with ease for maintenance and cleaning purposes. In addition, LOBO is available 24/7 and so puts you in control of what and when you schedule your maintenance tasks.

Product Benefits

a) LOBO access is scalable, adaptable and adjustable to meet your ongoing and changing requirements. Simply add more components or alter your existing configuration to satisfy the demands of the next task. Protect your initial investment with a product that will meet all your access needs safely!

b) LOBO work platforms are  rigid and stable product, which meets or exceeds current safety regulations. Handrails can be fitted in seconds, at any point in the erection process.

c) LOBO’s steel scaffold structure ensures many years of product life and a system that will not shake or rattle. The system also includes Sway Braces and Outriggers for total rigidity on taller systems.

d) LOBO Systems modular scaffold approach means components fully integrate and can be hand carried. Fully constructed systems can also be made mobile by the addition of wheels.

Cost Benefits

Experience shows that deploying the LOBO System reduces the costs associated with hiring scaffolding and constructing bespoke access systems. By reducing your reliance on outsourced scaffolding and engineering companies, cost savings will be achieved easily within a 12-month period.

With this quantifiable reduction in costs come the added savings associated with reduced down-time and greater productivity from your maintenance department!

Available 24/7, quick to erect – and above all, safe! – The LOBO work platform is immediately adjustable for your next job with no staff waiting time while new fixed-frame structures are built.

Re-configurable again and again, this product comes with no disposal costs and minimal replacement and on-going training costs.
