Add a Hinge from CPES Ltd is either a retro fit solution to all ‘Working at Height’ issues associated with the maintenance of street light columns or it can be added prior to the installation of a column. HSE legislation has gradually restricted the use of ladders to the point where many businesses have banned their use. Until now the only remaining option was to replace a streetlight lamp, photocell or undertake general maintenance work was to hire a cherry picker or scissor lift and ensure the operator has the appropriate training. 

 

Once Add a Hinge has been fitted it permits one operator, with only one key, to hinge the lamp post to a horizontal position to allow all maintenance work to be undertaken at ground level, safely. Add a Hinge has been tested to breaking point to simulate wind loading – it is always the lamp post itself that fails. Contact us for further details.
