Two decades ago, Easy Access introduced the Mini Mobile Scaffold Tower to the building industry of New Zealand and to their fellow Kiwi builders and tradies. The compact aluminium scaffold tower remains a common sight in construction sites and home building sites across New Zealand. The Mini Mobile Scaffold Tower is still made in New Zealand at Easy Access’ Northland factory and due to its enduring demand, this iconic piece of equipment will be re-launched to the market in its 20th year.
The tower’s popularity can be attributed partly to its compact and modular design, which provides a safe platform from which trades can compliantly work for long durations at any height up to 5.7 metres. The full surround guard railing features snap-lock connections making the tower quick and easy to install, even for just one person.
The Mini Mobile has bracing on one side of the unit only, leaving the other side open for the user to easily access the tower. Ladder rungs built into each end of the unit can be climbed from within the footprint of the tower to the top of the platform via a hinged hatch. Once on top of the platform, the hatch door is flipped back down, securely self-locking. The user then has a sturdy platform of 700mm wide and either 1700mm long or 3000mm long. Four snaplock guardrails protect the user from falls, and a toeboard prevents damage or injury resulting from dropped tools or other objects.
Because of its compact design, the Mini Mobile Scaffold Tower will fit through a standard internal door, making the tower convenient for both indoor and outdoor use. They are also useful on uneven grounds with its designed locking casters that can be adjusted and swapped for the right height and stability to keep the workers safe and secured. For steeper slopes or for working on stairs or steps, a specialist “all-terrain” pack, comprising an adjustable end frame allows adjustment of up to 1200mm – perfect for working on stairwells.
20 years strong, the Mini Mobile unit has evolved and with it several other add-on packs have been introduced, from component sets, guard railings, extensions, and more. Manufactured to be compliant to AS/NZS 1576, the robust, high tensile aluminium Mini Mobile is load rated to 225Kg.
The upcoming re-launch of the Mini Mobile tower brings Easy Access back to their roots while still displaying the passion and drive to keeping New Zealand site workers safe, efficient and compliant.
