StructSure boasts a 0.58 EMR rating which is impressive for a scaffold company, especially one that specializes in challenging boiler work during outages. Project Manager LA Guinther states that they contribute a lot of that safety back to the Maxial Hoist.
By using 2 Maxial Hoists in tandem, they are able to eliminate 20 workers that would have to be passing up to 10,000 pieces of material up and down a man line as they build the perimeter scaffolding inside boilers for shut down maintenance work.
“I no longer have 40 sets of arms passing material up and down 10 hours a day…
How do you put a price on that…on reducing the risk of getting someone hurt? You’re reducing manpower (in the boiler) so you’re reducing liability…”
LA also mentions the tremendous savings in labor costs that can be achieved and how he can better utilize his workforce with Maxials. By eliminating the man lines
“On a hard dollar bid, I can be much more competitive with my numbers…I can pass those savings on to my customer”.
StructSure’s Project Manager LA Guinther agreed to discuss how they have been
using the Maxial Track Hoist System to:Improve productivity, and…
More importantly to reduce their risk of accidents and liability exposurewhen working in power plant boilers.
In addition, he provided some amazing photos and video footage from inside a 13000 MW boiler.
