Electric Timber Mill Access
Euro Scaffold Solutions have been providing extensive scaffolding services to Lumbercube for their timber mill in Rotorua.
Lumbercube is the first mill of its type outside of Europe and Canada and presented unique challenges to provide scaffold access to their electric motors, scanners and chains on the elevator.

The challenge was to provide platforms above the cutting saws and not to impede the working area of the elevators whilst suspended from the steel work.
Neil Lunt said using the Layher System has been integral to achieving a fast installation and provided the client with a fully functional platform area while they work out operational problems of the new mill.
