PASMA Towers with Cantilevers for Users


A versatile access structure, Cantilever Towers allows operators to work over an obstruction without supporting the other side of the tower. It is easy to construct and use, but provides valuable assistance and access to work over obstructions such as stairwells, garages and apertures - anything that protrudes over the normal base dimensions of the tower. 

This PASMA Towers with Cantilevers for Users certification delivers a thorough understanding of the relevant operational and safety requirements and inspection of working on towers with cantilevers. It is specifically aimed at Plant Operators who need to work with cantilever towers to carry out their duties.
