SELFLOCK

SELFLOCK TOWER
Selflock frames are light and easy to handle and are ideal to gain quick access to elevated positions. Towers can be erected in a short time by two unskilled workers.

Uses of towers as access

• Electrical work
• Plumbing
• Maintenance
• Plastering
• Painting
• Column erection

Allowable tower heights
Below is a list of the maximum free standing heights allowed based on maximum base-to-height ratio

Inside static towers 4 x min. base dimension
Inside mobile towers 3.5 x min. base dimension
Outside static towers 3.5 x min. base dimension
Outside mobile towers 3 x min. base dimension

Tying in
When the safe base-to-height ratios are being exceeded or there are high lateral loads the tower should be tied securely to the structure with scaffold tubes and fittings.

Note
Towers can extend to 30m (150') if tied in correctly.

Mobile Towers
Mobile tower castors must be locked when the tower is in use. The tower can be moved on jack castors which must be locked when the tower is in use.
