Case Studies

7 Storey Window Installation

Mainline Hire

The Project

A window installation company approached Mainline to assist with some elevated access to flat roofing, an area that was not previously load tested. 

The Challenge

Machine needed for the front elevation to get to the windows and framework, where they needed to stretch up and over flat roofs and facades.  The flat roof with glass balustrades was not load tested, and therefore no machines could be put on there.

Mainline Hire

The Solution

The Z135 was the perfect machine for the job, as the height of the primary boom was needed to rise over the front flat elevation with glass balustrades.  The 20m outreach of the secondary boom to reach over the flat area and height of the building.

The M250 27.5m working height diesel scissor was used for the glazing curtain wall, this machine was the perfect height for the glazing wall on this project and the weight capacity meant that they could carry the glass and equipment required and still move with ease at full height.

The 6832 10m diesel scissor was used for the lower level of the building.

Carole Poynton – Mainline Group Director

‘’Mainline was the preferred supplier because our Account Management team always offer service that exceeds expectations. Our customer had no relationship with their last access supplier and it was very transactional. They wanted a collaborative relationship – someone to ask advice and provide the best recommendations. 

Our Account Managers, supported by their office based Sales Coordinators, are able to offer a ‘one to one’ service where they can answer technical queries and they offer site surveys to ensure the right hire equipment is used.  The customer can then introduce the Mainline team to the main H&S Executives with confidence because of their wealth of experience.’’
