BS 1139-6

BS1139 Part 6 details requirements for the structural design of configurations that are outside the standard of the (BS) EN 1004 standard.

This includes structures below 2.5m height and above the 8 and 12m height limits in (BS) EN 1004.

BS1139 -6 includes:

  • Cantilever structures
  • Stepped towers (including towers on stairs)
  • Large-deck Structures
  • Facade and Linked Tower Structures

These tower structures use enabling components such as walk-through frames, portal frames, high-clearance frames and bridge beams.

 

Benefits of BS1139-6 structures

  • Modular construction – easy to assemble and quick to inspect
  • Lightweight – simple to transport
  • Enabling Components readily available
  • Uses (BS) EN 1004 components

 

Assembly, modification and dismantling of BS1139-6 structures

If you need towers assembled, make sure the job is carried out by a PASMA Hire & Assembly member with professional tower riggers – you will know them by their website smart badge
