Reach for the sky

UK powered access rental company, Star Platforms, has provided two Skyjack SJ46AJ articulated boom lifts to help with building maintenance and refurbishment to the Georgian mansion, Tyringham Hall.

Built in 1797, Tyringham Hall is a Grade I listed English stately home located in 60 acres of Buckinghamshire countryside. The hall is home to four reception rooms, a kitchen, breakfast room and study on the ground floor, with a spa, games room, cinema and gym areas on the lower ground. There are 10 principal bedrooms and nine bathrooms.

The Skyjack SJ46 articulated jib (AJ) boom lifts provided the up and over capability required for the workers to reach the outside facias and windows on each floor as well as navigate the landscaping and period walls along the bottom of the property. With a working height of 21.21m and outreach of 8.38m, the maintenance team could reach up to the third-floor to complete refurbishment and maintenance tasks.

The owner of Tyringham Hall said: “We have worked with Star Platforms for a number of years and are always impressed with the machines they provide. Our maintenance team receive a familiarisation when the cherry pickers are dropped off and can complete their work quickly without risking damage to the building, which is essential with a Grade I listed property. The Skyjack 46AJ’s were perfect for the job”.
