Bennu Scaffolding Platform Series #3 at the World of Concrete 2018

Bennu Parts & Service Inc., the only authorized manufacturer of the BENNU™ scaffolding system, will be showcasing the Bennu Series #3 Mast-Climber — which is fully compatible with all BENNU™ accessories.

The Series 3 Continuous Climb Hydraulic Work Platform allows users to continuously raise and lower the self-leveling scaffolding safely and efficiently, with the push of a button. This continuous-climb operation saves time and money by quickly putting the work platform at the height needed. Multiple safety features, such as a redundant manual backup, spring-loaded safety dogs and an internal hydraulic brake, give operators confidence that the platform is always safe and level.

Scaffold & Access Industry Association SAIA certification plaque for Bennu Parts & ServiceBennu Parts & Service rents and sells mast-climbers, parts and accessories. Using the BENNU™ Layout Software, expert technicians are available to assist with designing difficult scaffolding layouts. With a drastic reduction in setup time, and an increase in the masons’ speed and efficiency in laying brick, these new power units save an estimated 40% over pipe scaffolding and 20% over other hydraulic platforms.

2015 World of Concrete / World of Masonry

by Masonry Magazine, March 2015.

The Masonry Magazine crew headed to sunny and warm Las Vegas in early-February to attend one of the construction industry’s biggest business events and week-long parties, World of Concrete/World of Masonry.  The event drew 55,779 registered professionals and featured more than 1, 459 exhibitors across more than 675,000 net square feet of space.  Our minds were blown by the continued innovation across the masonry construction industry.  Throughout the week, we also attended the many educational and fun events during the MCAA Annual Convention (see coverage on pp. 14 – 18 of this issue).  Following are a few highlights from an eventful week during World of Concrete/World of Masonry.

2017 Pro Masonry Magazine cover page December 2017 - January 20184 Things to Consider for Continuous Climbers
By Jennifer Morrell — Executive Editor, Pro Masonry Guide.

2017 Pro Masonry Magazine article photograph Jerry CastleWhether you are using a mast climber, continuous climber or telehandler, you should be aware of safety aspects that come along with the job. To learn more about the correct usage and safety considerations of continuous climbers, Pro Masonry Guide sat down with Jerry Castle, president and owner of Elk Grove Village, Illinois-based Bennu Parts and Service. Following is what he had to say.

PMG: How do you approach training with your customers?

Jerry Castle and Son Hi-Lift - Bennu Scaffolding Platform Training

Bennu Scaffolding Platform Training

Castle: We provide a PowerPoint visual presentation along with a reference manual for the customer to follow along. We also have equipment on site for a hands-on demonstration. With a power unit on site, we can identify the points we are making in real time. We send a qualified trainer out to the client’s place of business to show them how to set up our equipment and to go over all of the details of what they’ve bought. If a person hasn’t had Bennu scaffolding training, we provide it, including the proper use of smart bars and wall ties hooked up to the tower to show where and how they function.

PMG: The Hispanic community is a significant part of the masonry labor force. How do you handle communication and/or the language barrier?

Castle: We ensure that we provide bilingual speakers and allow for translation when needed. Even if it makes the session go longer, we allow more time to accommodate our Spanish-speaking customers who do not speak English fluently.

PMG: Where do you see weaknesses regarding continuous climber safety and regulations?

Castle: During our training, we encourage a commitment of ongoing safety and training. Some people who have entered the workforce more recently may not be trained for the jobsite, so we do our part to emphasize to the owner the safe use of equipment and accessories. Safety first, the owner and workers must be reminded of it. The accessories we provide for scaffolding are developed to allow a safer approach.

PMG: What makes your continuous climber product different?

Castle: We have three important safety features in our scaffolding drive system. Our advanced design features a planetary gear box with a hydraulic disc brake and motor with a climbing wheel which rolls smoothly up the mast and onto each step. In between those we have a spring-loaded safety locking system (“Safety Dog”) that is always in operation and a counterbalance valve that will lock the hydraulics and prevent any movement, if a hose were to break. The scaffolding platform is self-leveling and ascends level at full climbing speed with synchronization during the elevation, a unique feature that took many years to develop and several engineers to perfect the design.
