The new helper on your building site


Following customer feedback, the new Trade Platform in 1m and 2m lengths has been designed to cater for the hard working tradesman.

Based on the versatile Alco Aluminium Plank, the fully adjustable unit allows individual settings of each leg, giving flexible use on uneven ground. The height adjustment ranges from 0.58m to 0.89m, with a reach from 2.6m to 3m.

What differentiates the product from the competition is the load limit of 300kg. This makes it one of the most durable in the market, and allows the builder to load the Platform with materials for maximum building efficiencies.

When coupled with the industry-leading 12-year warranty, Alco’s Trade Platform design and specification is in a class of its own.

Other features are the wide spread angle allowing access to the very ends of the platform, the convenient folding legs for portability, and the rubber inserts and knurling on both edges of the Platform for sure footed operation. The cross brace on each leg offers a convenient step in the extension mode, and the Platform is ideal for internal and external use.

Alco’s Trade Platform is manufactured by MCK Metals Pacific, a Taranaki-based New Zealand-owned company, which has more than 50 years’ manufacturing experience.

The company is proud to offer its customers a wide range of New Zealand-made aluminium access equipment. As part of MCK Metals Pacific’s commitment to the environment, the company is committed to reducing harmful emissions, and has implemented sustainable manufacturing practices.
