It provides masonry, concrete, glazing, EIFS, waterproofing, caulking and architectural surface repair contractors equivalent benefits to the KPM-8 in a lighter-duty work platform.

This system is compact and totally unified. It is small enough to fit through standard doors yet has a high free-standing height! The KLIMERLITE has no loose components. Mast bolt assemblies are permanently attached to mast sections and quick-attach pins are tethered to the platform deck sections.

Klimer’s KPM-8 mast climber may be twinned to achieve platforms up to 141′ (42.98 m) long, allowing decks to span from pier to pier and providing full access to the work surface. Industry-leading design dramatically increases production over other types of access.

Efficient access for your next bridge, dam or utility project

Multiple crews work effectively from one access solution – maximizing time, reducing schedule challenges and increasing profits. Klimer’s heavy-duty KPM-8 boasts fast travel speeds of up to 30′ (9.14 m) per minute and heavy-duty capacities keep trades, tools and material at optimal working height. Savings on challenging bridge work are realized quickly with fewer trips. Klimer’s tie-in design allows platforms to be positioned back from the pier facade for uninterrupted access to the facade. Gas-powered engines eliminate the hazard of hanging cables and increase site organization and containment.

Work such as concrete chipping, forming, pouring, drilling of anchors and concrete replacement is performed directly from the work platform, at optimal working height. Klimer’s versatile design allows platforms to be twinned at lengths up to 141′ (42.98 m) providing access from pier to pier. Enjoy increased access to work area and exposure to facade.

Klimer’s pedestal base can be engineered to fit into tight or limited spaces and may be customized for specific conditions. Our engineering, drafting and consulting services deliver superior access and ensure superior profitability on your next bridge, infrastructure or heavy civil project.
