*European Committee for Standardization
CAGSAN has adapted and re-designed the ProTUBE Towers, which used to have TÜV-SÜD EN 1004:2004 standard, according to EN 1004-1:2020 standard. The codes of our products with new standards have been changed as ProTUBE N series.
WHAT’s NEW WITH EN 1004-1:2020 ?
According to the new standard, the companents of Rolling Towers; should allow user to assemble, altered and dismantled the tower without using any personal fall protection equipment.
Thanks to the newly designed SAFE GUARDRAIL SYSTEM it is easier and safer to assemble and dissasemble the Tower.
New Safe Guardrails have been developed for the comfort and safe installation of ProTUBE N series. During the installation, the user can stand safely on each floor and easily install the frames, Safe Guardrail Systems and platforms of the next floor. So user has a safe area with side protections before climbing to the upper Level.

SAFER AND EASIER ASSEMBLING
In accordance with the previous EN 1004:2004 standard, it has been required the distance between the floor to the first platform was maximum 4.60 m. The height between the two platforms have been required as maximum 4.20 m. With the new standard, these distances have been limited and reduced for more safety.
According to the new standard EN 1004-1:2020, the height of the first platform from the floor can be maximum 3.40 m and the height between the two platforms can be maximum 2.25 m. By the way the assembling of the product becomes easier and accessing to the upper levels are safer. While designing The new ProTUBE towers, we further shortened the distances between the two platforms.
|On ProTUBE N Series height between the two platforms is only 2.10 m.|
WHICH PLATFORM CAN I WORK ON?
According to the new standard, the topmost platform has been determined as a working platform and users are only allowed to work on that Platform. Other platforms are called intermediate platforms they are used just to access to the topmost work platform.
If it is required to work on intermediate platforms, it is mandatory to attach toeboards to those platforms.
ADDITIONAL SAFETY EQUIPMENTS
The Updated standard also brings additional safety equipments, regardless of product height. The previous standard was not bring any regulation for the towers which heights were below 2,5m, with the new Standard it is obligatory to add stabilizers, side guardrails and toeboards. For the towers which heights are blow 2 meters. If climbing from the outside is necessary , the tower should not be overturned. For this reason, the new Mini Stablisers have been added to ProTUBE FN96 and FN180 models.
CAGSAN made these products developmens to our ProTUBE FN series.
