StructSure Scaffold & Insulation, a subsidiary of MHS Legacy Group, is a company based in the Ohio Valley that specializes in scaffold and insulation services for power plant customers during outages and turnarounds.
StructSure boasts a 0.58 EMR rating which is impressive for a scaffold company, especially one that specializes in challenging boiler work during outages. Project Manager LA Guinther states they contribute much of that safety to the BETA MAX Maxial Track Hoist. He agreed to discuss how StructSure has been using the Maxial Track Hoist System to improve productivity and, more importantly, to reduce their risk of accidents and liability exposure when working in power plant boilers.
By using two Maxial Hoists in tandem, they are able to remove 20 workers that would otherwise have to work inside the boiler passing up to 10,000 pieces of material up and down a man line as they build the perimeter scaffolding for shutdown maintenance work.
“I no longer have 40 arms passing material up and down 10 hours a day… How do you put a price on that…on reducing the risk of someone getting hurt? You’re reducing manpower (in the boiler), so you’re reducing liability.”
Guinther also mentions the tremendous savings in labor costs and how he can better utilize his workforce with Maxials by eliminating man lines.
“On a hard dollar bid, I can be much more competitive with my numbers…I can pass those savings on to my customer”.
