Save time and money with V-Decks suspended platform systems
Traditional scaffolding systems built from the ground up may not always be feasible in hard-to-reach areas such as worksites, bridges, and in the oil and gas sector. Maintenance tasks like surface treatment, insulation work, cable replacement, hydraulic and NDT tasks can disrupt daily work on e.g. an oil platform. Fortunately, there is an alternative – the use of suspended platform systems.
At RT9, we use V-Decks, a specialized type of suspended platform system developed by Velo Tech Systems. We have extensive experience in setting up and inspecting suspended platform systems, ensuring that your team can safely carry out their tasks on the worksite without hindering or disrupting other important operations.
Suspended platform systems, with their lightweight construction, can be mounted on multiple sides of a building structure, taking up only the space where they hang. This means that the daily workflow is not disrupted since the scaffold is not in contact with the ground or occupying unnecessary space in the working environment.
Benefits of suspended platform systems
The suspended platform system we install for you is called a V-Deck, developed by Velo Tech Systems. There are several advantages to using this system scaffold:
- It reduces the load on your structure by up to 90%. The scaffold typically weighs 25-35 kg per m2 and can be designed to handle a load similar to a Class 4 scaffold of 500 kg per m2.
- The scaffold has fewer contact points. It is suspended by chains rather than tubes and only takes up 12 cm for each level built.
- You achieve higher FoS (Factor of Safety) and a safer working environment for the workers. The scaffold can withstand harsh weather conditions as it has a strong structure and can accommodate more workers.
- The scaffold can be built up to 88% faster than traditional scaffolding systems, saving you both time and money.
We solve the following tasks with suspended platform systems
- Installation and assembly of the scaffold on various complex structures such as oil platforms, bridges, and power plants.
- Inspection of the scaffold to ensure the safety of your workers.
We have helped companies such as Maersk in the Norwegian sector and Subsea A/S with the installation of suspended platform systems. You can read more about how we assisted Maersk Interceptor with the installation of a suspended platform system, here.
Do you have a task that needs to be solved at height?
At RT9, we take pride in our team of skilled craftsmen who are experts in rope access and have extensive experience in handling installation tasks with suspended platform systems. We provide our services not only in the oil and gas sector but also on bridges, industrial sites, construction sites, and power plants.
Whether your project requires surface treatment, insulation work, cable replacement, hydraulic and NDT tasks, or any other maintenance tasks, we have got you covered.

RT9 CASE | Maersk Offshore
This task was specially designed for Maersk Interceptor. The anchoring possibilities were very small, so RT9 built a suspended platform system with V-decks, which weighed 25-35 kg per m2 and could be designed according to class 4 scaffolding.
