Self-climbing Platform

Self-climbing Platform is primarily designed to meet the peripheral protection requirements of high buildings and offer an operation platform for the construction of building facades. The entire frame can be elevated and lowered layer by layer alongside the engineering structure, which enhances the efficiency of construction.

GETO Self-climbing Platform is suitable for commercial buildings, residential buildings, high-rise buildings, etc.

Lifting System

Self-Climbing Platform

(commonly known as climbing fame) is the extension and development of the extermal scaffolding. It is a complete set of construction equipment developed from the traditional concept of building turnover materials. It possesses all the functions of traditional scaffolding, specifically suitable for high-rise buildings and super high-rise buildings.The lifing system consists of slide way, lifting hanging bracket, lower hanger frame,electric

chain hoist, and over hanger frame.

Frame System

Frame system is the main component of attaching lifting scaffolding, and also the safe operation platform for constructors. The frame structure is mainly composed of walkway plate, poling, protective net, truss, turning plate, etc.

Lightning Protection System

The system consists of air termination,grounding grid and grounding wire.

Note: The high-rise construction lifting platform type high-rise metal frame,which is close to the reinforced concrete structure, is extremely vulnerable to lightning strikes, so lightning protection measures are very important. Every time the frame body is lifted, the grounding cable connecting the frame of the high-rise construction lifting platform and the main body of the building must be removed,and then lifted. After the lifting is completed, connect the frame and the building with a grounding cable of not lessthan φ16mm²

Attached support System

The attached support system is a supporting structure that is directly attached to the building structure and connected to the vertical main frame to withstand and transmit loads. With support, anti-fall, anti capsize function.

Control System

To form the control system,some essential components are computer, mobile phone, tablet PC, remote controller, sensor main control box, sub-control box, cable line and loading sensor.


One-time Installation

Only one-time Installation is needed for the Integrated Self-Climbing Platform for the whole construction use of a skyscraper. Its economic benefits are greater when it is applied to higher skyscrapers. Compared to conventional scaffolding system, applying GETO’s self-climbing platform system to skyscrapers can help our clients to save 30% – 50% in cost (noted with 60% lower cost for steel material usage, 40% lower cost for operational cost and 80% lower electricity consumption).

Safe & Reliable

Integrated Self-Climbing Platform consists of a firm steel structure, fully-integrated operational and safety equipment, low-rise installation for high-rise application concept, and fully-enclosed protection settings for professional precautions guaranteed in sites.

Smart Control

With a microcomputer intelligent control system in place, the Self-Climbing Platform can optimize the operation of each self-climbing frame in its approach in terms of lifting speed, weight loadings, and height difference in adhering to standardized design operation. The intelligent control system can automatically detect any overloading or underloading issues in any frame under its system and offer alert signals for consequential safety actions to be taken to prevent any relevant potential dangers on the site.

Simple Appearance

In contrast with the complicated appearance of a conventional scaffolding system, the overall appearance of the Integrated Self-Climbing Platform is much simpler and more organized, which can contribute to a more effective, safer, and more civilized project impression.


GETO’s self-developed patented system integrated into this product offers integrative functions of bearing, anti-falling, anti-tilting, and stabilization.
