With integrated shock absorber
To provide secure anchorage, XSPlatforms designed and engineered the Outrigger. With beams made of high-grade aluminium alloy and coated counterweights, this roof beam was designed to withstand the elements for a maximum lifespan.
The Outrigger consists of just eleven, lightweight parts. The beams are made of a high-grade aluminium extrusion. This makes them as strong and durable as steel, at just a fraction of the weight. In fact, the heaviest parts are the counterweights, which weigh only 23 kg. each.
SAFETY ABOVE ALL
The Outrigger has a unique, integrated shock absorber. In contrast to conventional systems, the suspension rope is connected to this purpose-built part, while a separate tensioning cable connects the rear support. This way, forces caused by movement of the platform are absorbed without displacing the Outrigger or its counterweights. For added safety, the backend is fitted with locking rods to prevent the counterweights from being removed by an unauthorized person.
The Outrigger can easily be adapted for different jobs: its height, inner beam length and outreach can all be adjusted. With a Working Load Limit (WLL) of 800 kg, the Outrigger can be used on virtually any flat roof.
