Rail and Transit

Fraco work platforms and elevators are strategic equipment during construction projects of urban public transport systems and light trains. Their large workspace offers all the latitude required to use machine tools and to install formworks necessary for above ground and underground concreting. Fraco also offers different types of temporary elevators and permanent lifts that find their application during construction of access shafts or to access the vaults of interior train stations.

Elevators and work platforms to help building urban rail systems

  • Work platforms for chipping, reinforcing, form working and concrete pouring
  • Work platforms for work on the pillars and segments of the railway infrastructure
  • Construction hoists for the transport of people, tools and materials during the construction of urban train stations and monorail
  • Service elevators for inspection and maintenance of underground infrastructures
  • Work platforms and transport platforms for the construction of vehicle maintenance centers.

High-Performance Access Equipment

Mast climbing work platforms represent one of the most useful types of equipment for the construction or repair of concrete structures of urban transit systems and light trains. If necessary, this equipment can be modified to adjust the work environment without compromising productivity, in addition to being loaded with all the materials and tools necessary to complete a project.

Fraco also offers temporary elevators for transporting workers and materials. Designed to minimize on-site interruptions, the SEH Series rack and pinion construction hoists and the SEP Series transport platforms are available in multiple size-capacity-speed combinations.

Ou rack and pinion permanent elevators of the SEL Series can be installed in limited spaces. Fraco offers a variety of standard and custom cabin dimensions, with lifting capabilities from 500 lb to 7000 lb, with lifting speeds of up to 300 feet per minute.
