EDMONTON GREY CUP ZIPLINE EVENT
THE SCAFFOLD WAS FAIRLY BASIC WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE TOP PLATFORMS
The 80 foot tall Allround scaffold tower was a chilly -35 degrees C. But the frigid temperatures didn’t stop Steeplejack Services from the required zipline testing for the Edmonton Grey Cup Event. Sometimes hard work comes with a perk.
The scaffold was fairly basic with the exception of the top platforms. Steeplejack Services erected both ends using Layher Allround Scaffold material. The taller tower measured 80ft was anchored every 15ft to the large clock tower using cables and softerners. The gentrlement from Ziptrek Ecotrours are professional climbers and rigged up, baleayed downt the tower and placed the straps around it. The second tower measuring approx. 40ft tall was secured down with cables (guy wires) and large concrete k-rails. This tower was directly over a subway station, so it was very specifi c on where to place the counter weight.
