LOBO Application – Data Centre Maintenance


Key Problems

Data centres are at the core of every business and crucial is the maintenance of cooling and environmental equipment to ensure your day-to-day operations remain online. Air conditioners, cooling fans and fire alarms need to be serviced to ensure the centre is operational, at all times.

Maintenance is key to an efficient process; many areas are awkward and therefore difficult to reach; each task often being different from the last. Working at height must be accomplished safely and traditionally outsourced scaffolding companies and fixed aluminium tower systems have been deployed. Outsourced scaffolding labour is expensive and not available 24/7, aluminium frame systems are cumbersome, inflexible, difficult to transport and will not adjust to fit into awkward areas.

The Solution


Using a LOBO System solution can dramatically improve data centre operations by reducing scaffolding labour costs, which in turn improves service levels and increases uptime.

The LOBO System can be assembled quickly, easily and safely around, through or above conveyors and restricted access areas – by upskilling your in-house maintenance crew with LOBO certified training.
This means out-sourced scaffolding labour costs can be reduced without compromising safety. Areas previously considered difficult to get to can now be accessed with ease for maintenance and cleaning purposes. Also, it is available 24/7 therefore puts you in control of what and when you schedule your maintenance tasks.

Product Benefits

LOBO is a rigid and stable product, which meets or exceeds current safety regulations. Handrails can be fitted in seconds, at any point in the erection process.

LOBO’s steel structure ensures many years of product life cycle and a system that will not shake or rattle. The system also includes a slider lifting beam kit and a Towerstore storage unit.

LOBO’s modular approach means components fully integrate and can be hand-carried. Fully constructed systems can also be made mobile by the addition of wheels.

The Towerstore offers security on or off-site. It provides a secure and yet simple way to store your LOBO components, which also makes managing all the components parts much simpler.

Designed specifically for LOBO’s advanced work platform system, it is fitted with feet for easy pallet truck or forklift manoeuvrability. Also, it can be locked with a padlock for security or storage.

The Towerstore can be vertically or horizontally mounted to suit the workshop and can be transported for rapid deployment, on and off-site.
