CBE moves up and down with the platfom, but it can also be moves horizontally in and out.

THE INDEPENDENTLY MOVING DECKS can slide 4 m outwards from main platform. MCWP with Counter Balanced Extension(CBE) allows work on facades which are sometimes close sometimes far from the platform body. It is possible to use several independently back and forth moving CBE:s. The movements of the deck modules are controlled manually or with motors (option).

CBE IS A MODULAR SYSTEM , which can be built to fit complex facade works. The number and width of decks is a dynamic factory option. CBE expansion is available on Scanclimber’s MCWP models: SC4000, SC5000, SC6000, SC8000 and SC10000. The MCWP can be installed in one position and moved both vertically and horizontally during the work process.
