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 BS 1139-6 structures

  • Modular construction - easy to assemble and quick to inspect
  • Lightweight - simple and easy to transport
  • Enabling components widely available
  • Uses (BS) EN 1004 tower componentsd

Need towers assembling

Professional Riggers, available from PASMA Hire & Assembly companies, are trained experts to assembly and dismantle mobile access tower structures.
