Industries Branach services include:
Electricity Power Supply
Branach supplies custom made fiberglass extension ladders and step platforms to the electricity distribution industry. Companies throughout Australia and internationally have varying specifications for their ladders which relate to their particular requirements and work practices. Branach is able to supply the specifications, quality and duty ratings required by the high safety standards this industry expects.
Branach started its career supplying ladders to the telecommunications industry. The lightweight but heavy duty ladders are ideal for the safety standards this industry requires. A special lightweight 7.6m ladder was specifically designed for Optus. The ladders are fitted typically with cable hooks, lashing ropes and ladder levelers.
Branach provides a range of step platforms and straight ladders to the mining industry. The underground coal mining industry for example has stringent requirements in regard to minimizing the amount and type of aluminium which is taken underground. Branach’s step platforms conform to these standards and are used widely. Mining sites often have chemical processing plants with corrosive environments and the Branach corrosion resistant platforms and single ladders are ideal in these situations.
Oil and Gas
The high salt environment of offshore oil and gas causes corrosion problems in normal ladders. Branach’s corrosion range, with its fiberglass and stainless steel construction is the ideal product to service this demanding environment. Branach’s step platform range is also used extensively in maintenance work throughout the industry. With its non-conductive, safe and stable construction it is ideal for the type of work required in this industry.
High Safety standards and the need to work at heights in manufacturing demand quality safe and stable ladders and platforms. Often there is electricity present in the work place and the non-conductive step platforms provide the safety and stability needed for all kinds of work from feeding machines to adjusting valves and general maintenance work. Branach’s step platforms are used extensively in the automotive industry.
Construction and building maintenance
The construction industry needs to work at heights on a daily basis. With tighter safety regulations in regard to working at heights, often a step platform is the only reasonable alternative. The robust build of the Branach step platform makes it ideally suited for this type of work. The non-conductive nature of the platforms adds an extra margin of safety. Building maintenance shares the requirements of construction and the Branach step platforms are used to access ceiling cavities, service automatic doors, air conditioners and a wide range of other equipment found in building services.
Event Staging and Exhibitions
Branach’s non-conductive step platforms with platform heights up to 3.6m are used extensively in the entertainment industry. From the more common application of adjusting lighting racks in theatres, schools and television studios to setting up events such as the Melbourne Grand Prix Branach step platforms allow users to safely access heights up to 6.0m.
The chemical processing and manufacturing industry provides some of the toughest environments for height access products. The corrosion resistant range of Branach platforms and single ladders are used to handle these environments providing cost effective safe height access where other products are either unsafe or have a very limited useful life.
Water and sewer
Branach’s corrosion resistant single ladders are used in the water and sewer industries often as permanently fixed ladders inside water tanks and sewerage installations. With no metal parts to corrode they make the perfect cost effective long life solution for these applications.
Aviation and Transport
Branach products are used in a wide range of transport applications. From re-fuelling of small to medium-sized aircraft through to service and inspection of the Airbus A380, the world's largest passenger plane. Branach's lightweight, robust and portable products suit a wide range of transport service and maintenance applications.
The need for high quality, safe, stable and strong height access equipment ensures that Branach products find applications across the whole spectrum of industries.
