Overview: R&R Scaffolding Ltd. is one of the largest suspended scaffolding companies in the tri-state area.
Their focus is on permanently installed building maintenance systems (window washing scaffolds) as well as rental, sales and service of temporary suspended access.
Their maintenance division services almost 200 buildings, with more than 150 of them in New York, NY.
R&R Scaffolding Ltd. has a proven track record for delivering both small and large projects on time and within budget.
R&R is known throughout the industry as an organization that tackles even the most challenging projects with honesty and integrity. Safety is the main determining factor in every facet of R&R’s work, including productivity, reputation, employee relations and financial results.
Designed to provide a safe and efficient method of access to all external parts of a building structure. Most design allows the user’s to access the equipment from the roof and with nothing to assemble. The design of the system is such that the hoists units are stored at the roof level therefore, granting access at all times should an emergency arise. Additionally, reducing weight on the working platform and allowing more room for workers. Built in Programmable Logic Controls (PLCs) monitor and ensure complete operators’ safety and minimizes breakdowns.
Davits and sockets systems are conventionally designed to provide an effective method to permanently access the exterior of a structural façade. It is most effective when a building design has multiple levels. A basic system is comprised of: fixed davit bases, portable davit arms and a self powered working platform.
Monorail systems are specially designed to accommodate interior atriums, sloped roofs and overhanging facades. It is mostly equipped with self powered platforms suspended from trolleys. The suspension method can be manual or motorized and most often the self powered platform is stored in a conceal area after its use.
Gantries or rolling ladders are simple and economic design. Most often gantries are vertically mounted and are guided with some type of steel tracks. The finish result usually blends in with the color and background of a building structure. Gantries are typically manually powered however, the option of powered assisted is always granted.
These hoists have a high power to weight ratio. They are quick and easy to install with aluminum alloy bodies and small compact design. These hoists are easily handled and offer integrated carrying handles.
Swing arm hoists are ruggedly constructed to handle heavy, bulking loads of up to 2,000 lbs. That's a full ton of material! Available in 800, 1,000 lb. and 2,000 lb. capacities. Swing arm hoists are easily transported in pieces and then assembled with self-locking pins and basic hand tools.
We carry high quality rack and pinion platform hoists to provide the construction industry with a reliable means of transporting material. Powder coated for durability and weather resistant, these units can last in the outdoor environments for many years.
Anchorages are available in many different forms and are the most critical part of the fall protection system. An inadequate anchor will result in failure of all other components. OSHA requires an anchorage to be capable of supporting 5,000 lbs. Contact our office for details concerning your specific anchorage needs.
This part of your fall protection system receives the most complaints; such as “It’s uncomfortable”, “It’s too heavy”, “It’s too big/small”. New body harnesses not only fit well, but are lighter and more comfortable than ever before. Body harnesses are now built to specific sizes, including models for women.
This mechanical device locks onto the lifeline and serves as your “parking brake”. Most models use a cam-type lock. Several models have fail-safe locks that allow the grab to engage the lifeline even if the user holds the cam open.
5/8” Poly-Dac is the industry standard in the tri-state area. Poly-Dac has dynamic properties well suited for arresting a fall. With a breaking strength over 5,000 lbs, along with great UV and abrasion resistance, this is the lifeline you want.
ANSI Z-359.1 states: “Knots shall not be used for load-bearing end terminations” (section 220.127.116.11.2). This device allows the user to make an end termination without a knot or the knowledge of how to splice rope. Fully rated at 5,000 lbs. capacity. Device is reusable.
When parapet walls or other structures are not available, outrigger beams are the solution. Utilized in conjunction with counterweights (or other ballasting method), outriggers allow the users to rely solely on their own equipment. Engineered with a safety factor of 4, outriggers can satisfy most every access requirement.
Assembled from modular sections, these custom outriggers can be broken down to fit within standard elevators. Utilizing cable truss systems, the outreaches can reach up to 14’-0”. Designed with a custom manufactured aluminum extrusion, these beams are both light and surprisingly strong.
Access to building façades often requires specialized equipment. Suspended scaffolding, a temporary system assembled from many components, requires the product knowledge and know-how of experienced and seasoned professionals.
These devices, often referred to as “motors”, are the primary lifting mechanism for suspended scaffolding. Typical hoists have a load capacity of 1,000 lbs. However, the load capacities can range from 700 lbs. up to 2,200 lbs. Hoists are available with either electric or air motors
