PepsiCo, Anheuser-Busch, Tyson, Heinz, Kraft, Kelloggs, Unilever, Nestle, Cargill, Heineken, Cott Beverages, Coca-Cola, Miller Coors, 2 Sisters Food Group, Allied Mills, William Grant, Pernod Ricard, Britvic, Muller Dairies, McCain, ADM, Dairy Crest, Bunge and Arla Foods all use the LOBO System for facility maintenance, and here’s why.
Food processing machines are difficult to access for maintenance and cleaning tasks. Traditional scaffolding and aluminium tower systems could be used, but as they cannot be quickly or easily assembled and are not tailored to fit each individual application, they cannot be deployed from one machine to another. They do not meet the industry’s day to day changing requirements.
Outsourced scaffolding labour is expensive and not available 24/7; aluminium frame systems are cumbersome, inflexible and will not adjust to fit into awkward areas. When not in use, they take up a lot of space and cannot be easily transported around the production facility.
Regular access to elevated areas, for example above conveyors, is awkward and difficult to reach. Safety is a key component of working at height which cannot be compromised.
The LOBO System is a re-configurable work platform product that combines the flexibility and strength of traditional scaffolding with the simplicity and mobility of tower systems. This combination provides a versatile access system that has applications right across the food industry.
The LOBO System, utilising its unique patented clamp, can be reconfigured and adjusted, without the need for tools, into any shape or size required. This simple system can be assembled by anyone, as the components are modular. LOBO’s electroplated steel legs and components can be flat packed when not in use and transported easily, for storage or utilisation elsewhere.
Your own in-house maintenance crews can assemble the LOBO System quickly, easily and safely around, under or above machinery or conveyors. To ensure safety, handrails can be fitted in seconds, at any point in the system, and at any stage of the assembly process. Staff should never be exposed to the risk of a fall. This means out-sourced scaffolding labour costs can be reduced without comprising safety.
Areas previously considered difficult to get to can now be accessed with ease for maintenance and cleaning purposes. As it is available 24/7 it puts you in control of what and when you schedule your maintenance tasks.
LOBO is scalable, adaptable and adjustable to meet your ongoing and changing requirements. Simply add more components or alter your existing configuration to satisfy the demands of
the next task. Protect your initial investment with a product that will meet all your access needs safely.
LOBO is a rigid and stable product, which meets or exceeds current safety regulations.
The Towerstore offers security on- or off-site. The Towerstore provides a secure yet simple way to store your LOBO components, which also makes managing all the components parts that much simpler.
Designed specifically for LOBO’s advanced work platform system, it is fitted with feet for easy pallet truck or fork lift manoeuvrability. Also, it can be locked with a padlock for security or storage. The Towerstore can be vertically or horizontally mounted to suit the workshop or can be transported for rapid deployment, on and off site.
LOBO’s electroplated steel structure ensures many years of product life and a system that will not shake or rattle.
Experience shows that deploying the LOBO System reduces the costs associated with hiring scaffolding and constructing bespoke fixed access systems. By reducing your reliance on outsourced scaffolding and engineering companies, cost savings will be achieved – easily within a 12-month period.
With this quantifiable reduction in costs comes the added savings associated with reduced down-time and greater productivity from your maintenance department.
