Demand for Modulift’s Custom Frames Driven by Growth in Modular Building Systems
Modulift, the lifting equipment specialist based in Poole, Dorset, UK have been in high demand for custom made frames across Europe and the UK over the last few months, particularly in the Modular Buildings market.
As the Government deals with the UK’s housing crisis and with many places in Europe taking the Scandinavian approach and welcoming all things modular, Modulift have 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, these types of frames are easy to adjust in width and length, carry out stable lifts with variable Centre of Gravity (COG) and easy to transport, making them the perfect solution for lifting modular buildings.
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 are wanting to move into a world that is cost efficient, low carbon and help house more people. We do believe that modular buildings are the way forward right now and for the future.”
John Baker for 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 4 week time frame that suits our customers’ needs and the lift that’s taking place.”
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.
