Our RoleSwing Stages
Delivery DateDecember 2021
Located downtown Toronto, our swing stage team installed a total of 6 swing stages for this building in need of new signage, 3 stages on the west side and another 3 on the northside.
At approximately 500ft above street level, winter weather elements and strong winds proved to be a safety challenge, but Northstar found a solution. Opting not to use the usual poly rope safety lines and instead designed the project with a 4 point suspension system with horizontal safety life lines installed on the stage platform. This meant that crew members could tie in directly to the swing stage platform.
Northstar was also tasked with finding a solution for removing the old logo and (2) 30’ wide steel cross members without adding the additional load on to the swing stage platforms. The solution was a custom designed, dual roof mounted winch system that safely and securely lowered the logo and steel members safely to the ground independently from the swing stage.
