Mobile access towers are professional equipment that no painter or fitter wants to be without. No wonder, as there is barely another climbing aid that is so flexible. Mobile access towers with a modular design are often folding, and can therefore be set up and packed together quickly and easily. Furthermore, they are easy to transport. They are still fast to move from one workplace to another even after they have been set up. If you have to perform tedious tasks at great heights, then mobile access towers are a suitable solution. And their compliance with the DIN EN 4422 standard ensures they are a safe solution too.
