Permanent suspension platform consisting of a suspension trolley with motorized horizontal translational movement on a rail beam. This large trolley, weighing about 5 tons, contains the lifts, fall arresters, cable, and electric hose reels, and the control and operation system of a basket that is inserted into the duct.

The basket is equipped with a cabinet to control all movements from the basket itself. A second control system allows operation from the upper carriage.

The maintenance of the BOF duct is carried out in a safe and efficient manner using a suitable platform designed to have a useful life of many years.
