About BFT Mastclimbing Ltd

BFT Mastclimbing is the UK leader in provision of Mast climbing Work Platforms (MCWPs) & associated IPAF training for mast climbers to the construction industry. MCWPs are a highly deployable alternative to scaffolding which can be used on both construction and maintenance projects with access requirements.

Rapid growth in the last few years has seen BFT’s fleet increase to over 1,600 machines with different sizes to fit all different applications including brickwork, cladding, glazing and all aspects of envelope maintenance. From low-level flat refurbishments to complex high-rise developments we use our technology, experience and unfaltering dedication to safety to save you both time and money. Research suggests these savings could be as much as 61% for buildings 12 floors and higher and up to 80% savings for 25+ floors.
