First for Scaffolding in the UK’s Second City

30th June 2016

The UK’s leading scaffold supplier held a second, highly successful open day at their Birmingham Depot, showcasing their PLETTAC METRIX Scaffold System and the ALTRIX Temporary Roof System.

Commencing with a thought-provoking indoor presentation by John Paterson, TRAD Hire & Sales’ Managing Director, the guests were introduced to the two systems’ main features and benefits.

The indoor presentation was followed by an outside live demonstration by TRAD Hire & Sales’ Technical Manager, Alan Slater, which displayed to all in attendance how quick, safe and highly adaptable both systems are.

In comparison to other scaffold systems and tube & fitting, the attendees could appreciate the advantages PLETTAC METRIX holds. The versatility, time saving and excellent safety features, such as the optional Permanent Advanced Guardrail makes this scaffold system second to none.

The new ALTRIX Temporary Roof System is suitable for use with all scaffold types, and offers unrivalled weather protection solutions. The lightweight, strong all-aluminium construction, along with simple but effective, colour-coding and Push-Fit technology, enables small or large weatherproofed areas to be constructed safely, quickly and with ease.

“…more than just a roof…” The ALTRIX system has been designed with stock utilisation in mind. Its components can be employed in other scaffolding applications, such as bridging sections within independent scaffolds, or in the forming of large flush decked areas in conjunction with the PLETTAC METRIX system.

The open day came to a close with a Q & A session with Des Moore, TRAD Group’s Managing Director, which covered a wide range of topics including how the use of PLETTAC METRIX and ALTRIX have provided commercial benefits to the TRAD Group’s business model.
