BoSS Tower Selector
Helping you choose the right tower for the job.
Choosing the right tower makes all the difference when it comes to safety. The right equipment also helps you tackle any job more efficient.
There are a few things you should consider to ensure you pick the right product.
A - Consider the type of work you're doing
Have you completed a risk assessment to determine you are using the right type of equipment?
If you need to work at height for long periods of time, for example, over 30 minutes, a tower may be a suitable choice over traditional equipment like ladders.
B - What requirements do you have?
From standard towers to unique product solutions, BoSS towers are designed with specific jobs in mind. The matrix below will give you an idea of suitable products depending on your requirements.
For general use
Robust and versatile, ideal for regular use.
Obstacles - Space constraints
Ideal for access to areas where obstacles prevent a standard tower from being erected.
C - How high do you need to reach?
D - Mobility
You'll need to consider whether your job requires you to move the tower from one area to another, or if you'll be able to work from fixed tower for some time. If you're working at a lower level (for example less than 2m), you can move the tower by simply unlocking the castor wheels supplied with the tower. You'll need to break down the tower to move it if the tower height exceeds 2m.
E - Platform loading
It’s important to pick a tower that’s robust enough to support not only your weight, but also the weight of equipment you have with you. Safe working loads vary for each tower build so ensure you check what’s suitable for the job you need to undertake.
Injuries sustained in the work place are preventable and with Working at Height injuries accounting for the highest number of injuries sustained in the work place, it’s important to choose a tower that is certified to the right standard. We always recommend using towers that meet safety requirements such as EN1004 and BS1139 Part 6.
