Increased demand for custom lifting frames17 May 2022
UK lifting frame manufacturer reports increased demand due to modular construction.
Modulift, the lifting equipment specialist based in Dorset, UK, reports high demand for its custom made frames across Europe and the UK over the last few months, particularly in the modular buildings market.
As the UK government deals with the country’s housing crisis and with many places in Europe taking the Scandinavian approach and welcoming all things modular, Modulift says it has seen an increase in the need for custom built frames for transporting and installing modular homes as well as other types of construction.
The most popular has been the custom designed adjustable lifting frame. The company says these type of frames are easy to adjust in width and length, carry out stable lifts with variable Centre of Gravity (COG) and are easy to transport.
One of Modulift’s returning customers, a leading modular building manufacturer, repeated that whilst the modular housing market is constantly changing it is continually growing and they are seeing increasing demand for their products.
The lead site foreman said, “The demand is huge. More people are becoming accepting of the idea of modular buildings. The government wants to move in to a world that is cost efficient, low carbon and help house more people. We believe that modular buildings are the way forward right now and for the future.”
John Baker, commercial director at Modulift said, “The need for custom frames is becoming more urgent especially within this ever-growing sector. At Modulift, we have a quick turnaround time for a custom built frame that can be designed, manufactured and delivered within a four week time frame that suits our customers’ needs.”
All of Modulift’s adjustable lifting frames are designed and verified in accordance with BS EN 13155 with no requirement to verify by proof load test.
