Motor suspension frames


Electrically operated motor suspension frames and mobile working platforms

These motor suspension frames are suitable for carrying out assembly work, reconstruction work, painting, etc. at great heights such as on inaccessible buildings such as high-rise buildings, telecommunications towers, chimneys, cooling towers, boiler rooms, bridges, sports stadia, high rack storage systems, etc.

Thanks to their modular construction, the motor suspension frames, type EUROPA 2000, can be individually assembled to suit the requirements of the application. We not only offer the suspension frame systems for sale, but we would also be happy to make you an offer for a lease arrangement. Our trained technical personnel are available for the installation of the motor suspension frames.

Cooling tower access equipment for natural draught cooling towers

GEBR. KÄUFER GMBH offer the widest variety of cooling tower access equipments for natural draught cooling towers. The access equipments are used for inspection, repair and maintenance operations, coating and reconstruction work. Special structures ensure that both the internal as well as external surfaces of cooling towers can be reached. Electrically-driven traverses on the top of the cooler make horizontal movement possible, while tried and tested continuous cable winches guarantee the safe upward and downward movement of the access equipment. Since before repair and coating work, preparatory work on the cooling tower surfaces is always required, Käufer also offers special remote-controlled access equipments for providing support to high-pressure water jet or sand-blasting equipment. The required contact pressure or clamping devices for the efficient processing of all surfaces are also taken into account. Even critical areas, for example the external surfaces of the throat of cooling towers - can be accessed easily.
