New Age has developed different designs of RSP at its Rajkot factory.
The custom shaped suspended platform is a kind of non-standard suspended platform with special specifications and it is tailored to meet the requirements for construction of irregular buildings. The platform features light weight, high utility, high security, and reasonable price. Its main part can be freely moved and restructured, making it convenient to complete the construction and maintenance work of irregular buildings.
New Age believes in customised solutions for rope suspended platforms to provide its clients with higher safety features. L-type (90o), C-shaped, curve-shaped, w-shaped, square-shaped, round-shaped, multiple front extension platforms, front extension (fixed or folding) and multiple modifications in suspension mechanism, parapet clamping, wall brackets are highly appreciated and accepted by the trend setters in the construction segment.
High construction efficiency
Rope Suspended Platform (RSP), commonly known as Gondola (or cradle or RSP) is an electrically operated temporarily installed suspended access equipment which is a suspended manned facility for work at heights by relying on a movable platform driven by motor, designed to suspend along the vertical surface of building by steel wire ropes through the suspension mechanism placed at the top of the building. The suspended access equipment is featured in strong construction adaptability, higher construction height, less occupation of construction land, high construction efficiency, easy erection, less labour needs, etc. RSPs are now widely used in India for working at heights. This is an easy-to-use and efficient solution for vertical transport.
Earlier, suspended platforms meant a 7.5 m straight structure design but now New Age has developed different designs of RSP in its factory at Rajkot.
L-Shaped (90o) RSP: 12 L-shaped RSPs were operated at L&T-Grand Central, Navi Mumbai's site by facade contractors. The working of straight RSP was failure due to the 900 mm curve shaped reeds on multiple locations on external walls. Even the front overhang was extended up to 2.5 m to cover reeds areas. Other sites include Bengaluru, Pune, Ideal-Kolkata, Tata-Bengaluru.
Square Shaped RSP: This is a unique design of suspended platform proposed for the first time for BG SHRKE site, Mumbai, for duct areas. Later, the same design was accepted by L&T-Bombay Dyeing, L&T-Minerva and Marathon Monte South for lift-shaft areas.
This machine is easily accessible for all four walls of shaft. Bamboos, H-frames or any other standard RSP cannot replace the importance of square shaped gondolas.
Curve-Shaped RSP: This type of machine is specially used in chimneys and silos. This RSP is required for repainting, painting, cleaning and maintaining the round walls of silos. Sites: JK Cement-Karnataka, JK Laxmi Cement-Rajasthan, Chambal Fertilizer Chemical-Kota.
10 MTR RSP: New Age introduced a 10-m-long RSP to cover dead wall work in a single time without any shifting. This machine was designed with all advance safety devices. It was used for the first time at the Lodha New Cuffe Parade site to its painting contractors. Later, it was used at Wadhwa-54, Lodha Amara, Mumbai, and some other sites.
Front Extension RSP: There are two types of front extensions in platforms: Fixed extension and flexible mechanism. Both are useful for working at difficult sites and received positive response for repainting works at old residential societies. The dimensions of front extension was changed by New Age according to customer demand. Site: Emami City-Kolkata, Happyville & Waterfront projects-West Bengal, L&T-Vapi, Bharatiya City-Bengaluru and many sites in different cities.
Round-Shaped RSP: The concept of round-shaped platform was first introduced by New Age in India for chimneys' internal works. The firm developed and installed a round-shaped platform at Neyveli, Tamil Nadu site, for 300 m working height, 3 tonne loading capacity and a 6.8 m diameter.
