The LOBO Advanced Platform System is perfect for accessing all retail maintenance tasks.

The LOBO System is a re-configurable work platform product that combines the flexibility and strength of traditional scaffolding with the simplicity and mobility of Tower Systems without the need for tools. This combination provides a versatile access system that has applications right across Retail Industries. The Hop Up, when combined with standard LOBO components provided access to chiller & refridgeration equipment

Key Problems

Shop maintenance requires regular access to elevated areas, chillers and electrical ducting which is often awkward and therefore difficult to reach, with each task being different from the last.

Working at height must be accomplished safely and, traditionally, outsourced scaffolding companies or fixed aluminium tower systems or hydraulic platforms have been deployed.

Outsourced scaffolding labour is expensive and not available 24 x 7 and aluminium tower systems are cumbersome, inflexible, difficult to transport and will not adjust to fit into awkward areas.

The Solution

The LOBO Scaffolding System, utilising its unique patented clamp, can be reconfigured and adjusted, without the need for tools, into any shape or size required. This simple system can be assembled by anyone, 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 use elsewhere.

The LOBO Work Platform System can be assembled quickly, easily and safely around, under or above chillers, isles and stalls by your own in-house maintenance crew. This means outsourced scaffolding labour costs can be reduced without comprising safety. Areas previously considered difficult to get to can now be accessed with ease for maintenance and cleaning purposes. In addition, it is available 24/7 and so puts you in control of when you schedule your maintenance tasks.

Product Benefits

LOBO scaffolding 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!

LOBO access scaffold is a rigid and stable product, which meets or exceeds current safety regulations. Handrails can be fitted in seconds at any point in the erection process.

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.

LOBO’s work platform modular approach means components fully integrate and can be hand carried.

“Scaffolding For Non Scaffolders”

Fully constructed systems can also be made mobile with the addition of wheels.


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

With this quantifiable reduction in costs comes 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! – it 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.

Design illustrations are simple and cost effective to create using LOBO Configurator.
