Suspended Platforms

Since our establishment in 1918 PCR have been continually involved with working at height and always point to the fact that the central core of the company is our ability to gain access to the most difficult of Structures.

We provide a wide range of innovative access solutions for structures such as Cable Suspension Bridges, Viaducts, Road and Rail Bridges, Tall Buildings, Cooling Towers, Chimneys, Flare Stacks and Communication Towers.


We provide Access operatives trained in line with IRATA (  and ATLAS ( standards.

Bespoke access systems are designed by our engineers and independent designs checked by Alan White Design (

Access solutions include aluminium work platforms suspended from traversing beams built into the platform and hung from the structure and temporary works, suspended cradles hung from moveable gantries.

Other access techniques include Abseiling and Boson's Chair Operatives.  We also employ from within the company Riggers, Slingers, Steeplejacks, IRATA technicians, Confined Space and Appointed Persons.
