Cape erects or dismantles over 2,000 individual scaffolds a day. Any efficiency that can be introduced to that process will ultimately improve the service clients receive. In early 2013 Cape carried out a robust review of various scaffolding systems in the UK market. "Our scaffolding teams work in a huge variety of different locations, each with their own particular technical challenges." explains Simon Hicks, Capes UK Head of Strategic Development. "Finding an intelligent solution that could improve our performance in a safe and reliable way was key."

After a thorough review, the HAKI® Universal System was selected to be the best solutions that meet the needs and requirements of Cape and its clients. The HAKI system benefits from many unique features such as fewer contact points and larger bay sizes which help increase productivity. As Simon explains, "we chose HAKI because of the excellent safety features of the system. It’s a high-quality, Swedish-engineered product, and we get great technical support from HAKI’s UK-based team. Deployed in the right place, we believe that the HAKI system is more efficient and delivers greater productivity gains than other systems on the market, and our people really like using it."


HAKI’s Vice President of Marketing and Business Development, Chris Stokes commented

"HAKI is proud to be chosen as Cape’s principle supplier of system scaffold, after a demanding selection process this is a great endorsement. This investment reinforces Cape’s powerful scaffolding and access service offering and demonstrates the effectiveness of HAKI for demanding industrial applications."

Cape has already started to implement the HAKI system, with the south sphere on the Polimeri Europa site in Hythe, being one of the notable successes. Access was required to the sphere structure to remove its fireproof coating and to carry out radiography testing. The Cape team built a large internal scaffold using collective measures and meeting requirements of SG4:10. Feedback from the client was positive, who told cape they were impressed with the "monstrous but beautiful scaffold".
