Side banner

Company: Dynamic Access offers fast, effective rope-access solutions for maintenance, inspection, and repair projects in a variety of industries.

They came to Harken Industrial looking for an innovative lifting solution for building maintenance that would meet their exacting requirements.

Market: Access, Rescue & Building Maintenance

Location: Based in Birmingham, England, Dynamic Access serves companies throughout the United Kingdom.

About the client: Dynamic Access has over 15 years of experience in delivering rope access solutions to multiple industries.

Requirements: Dynamic Access required a lifting solution for reglazing projects on buildings with multi-level or difficult access due to height, design, or access restrictions. A cost effective, versatile and robust product was required to undertake these complex projects, with mobility, versatility, and ease of use key  requirements.

Solution: The manual Riggers Winch 500 was offered as a lifting solution that could be deployed at high or low levels, and in almost any orientation needed.  Winch portability and anchoring options allowed it to be deployed quickly at most locations on the site. The Riggers Winch 500 can lift loads up to 500 kg (1102 lb) using fibrous rope and fits perfectly with the company’s rope-access competence, kit, and methods. The Riggers Winch was paired with a high-torque Makita 11V angle drill or battery drill to reduce workload and optimize lifting delivery time.

In 2016, Dynamic Access was awarded a 12-week project to replace glass units on a 50 m (164′) building located in London’s Holland Green development. The Riggers Winch was deployed at roof level, securely anchored to structure, and powered with an angle drill to transfer 100 kg (120 lb) DGU’s (double glazed units) to and from position. The winch was successfully deployed and relocated around the roof area for the duration of the project, greatly reducing cost and negative impact to the site compared to a crane’s.

At only 7 kg (15.4 lb), the Riggers Winch completed on average 20 No. 100 kg (220 lb) lifts per day, recording an estimated total distance of 50 – 60 km (31 – 37 miles), with no loss of time or performance over the 12-week program.

Summary & Legacy: The Riggers Winch 500 has been used by Dynamic Access on a number of projects since it was purchased. It has  delivered consistent results and become a highly-valued piece of equipment.

Its ease of use and versatility are strengths that have earned it high acclaim as a ‘go to’ piece of lifting equipment within the company. It’s uses and benefits are frequently  shared by Josh Anelli (Managing Director) via Social Media.
