Safe access for the retail world

13 November 2019

Retail companies expect comprehensive shop maintenance services, even when shops are open. Areas where standard working at height equipment cannot fit are a problem. LOBO Systems offer a solution.

Regular service appointments and routine maintenance, with a clearly defined range of services, helps make sure shops stay open and running without any problems. 

Safety management begins with an organisation ensuring that employees have fit for purpose, work at height safety equipment, on which they have been trained to assemble, inspect and use safely. This saves time and money and keeps engineers safe.

Often aluminium scaffolding products cannot be reconfigured to fit awkward areas such as stairways. Tube and clamp scaffolding is heavy and time consuming to construct.

The LOBO System can offer a solution to these problems. As it is quick to assemble, significant reductions in labour costs can be achieved. 

Real time overnight maintenance issues exist as time constraints increase labour costs, with safety being a key component. The strategic use of the LOBO System to gain rapid access for working at height issues may in part alleviate these issues. 

Key to efficient running, smooth operation and safety is properly maintained property and associated plant rooms.

The LOBO System can be configured to create a safe work platform. 

The photos show the rapid assembly time of a 20-minute system. LOBO says this, coupled with the no-tools-to-erect feature, means a lower labour cost and a safer working environment.

The Solution

The LOBO System can be assembled quickly, easily and safely around, above desks or restricted access areas, without the need for tools, by your own in-house maintenance crew. This means out-sourced 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 what and when you schedule your maintenance tasks. 

The LOBO System can be configured into unlimited shapes and sizes to suit almost all awkward access situations and packs away for easy storage or transportation to the next work area.  

Product Benefits

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

LOBO’s steel modular components ensure many years of product life cycle and a system that will not shake or rattle. The system also includes anti-sway braces and outriggers for totally rigidity on taller systems. 

LOBO’s modular 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

LOBO says its experience shows that deploying the LOBO system reduces the costs associated with hiring scaffolding and constructing bespoke access systems: By reducing your reliance on out-sourced scaffolding and engineering companies, cost savings will be achieved – easily in a 12-month period.

Also, it can be locked with a padlock for security or storage. The Towerstore can be vertically or horizontally mounted to suit the workshop or can be transported for rapid deployment, on and off site.

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