Customer Benefits

  • Increase in productivity by using EFCO’s protection system. This multipurpose system is placed on the perimeter of the building to provide wind protection and safety on the ground from falling debris. It also creates an environment in which the crew feels as though they are working safely on the ground, instead of on the 35th floor.
  • EFCO’s POWER SHIELD® is designed to be flexible; gangs can be built to meet local city and state transportation codes for seamless transport to the jobsite.
  • EFCO DECK® allows for a 6′ x 8′ (1,830 mm x 2,440 mm) post spacing, the contractor is able to deck the 12,000 ft2 (1,115 m2) footprint in a matter of hours. When it is time to cycle the EFCO DECK® equipment to the next floor, the POWER SHIELD® system is equipped with lookout decks with more than enough room to position material and crane-lift to the next level.
