Tower Climber

No more climbing

The 3S Lift Tower Climber is a battery-powered single-person ladder-mounted lift. It can be installed inside the tower section of the crane and the existing ladder. The Tower Climber improves the Health & Safety of the crane operator because it eliminates climbing. It offers simple and smooth operation, a compact design, and easy disassembly.

This lift is equipped with three core technologies developed by 3S Lift, including redundant Fall Protection Systems, an independent control system, and a rack and pinion drive system.

10 safety features allow people to work at heights with peace of mind

  • Redundant Fall Protection (independent Fall Arresters for the lift and the operator)
  • Remote operation system to send lift up and down without operator
  • Power failure protection
  • Overload protection system
  • Two-handle start-up switch system
  • Manual descent function
  • Top and bottom limit switches
  • Low power protection function
  • Audible and visual alert while running
  • Collapsible footboards

Customizable to adapt to individual customer requirements or working scenarios

With nearly 2 decades of experience in lifting technology, 3S Lift products improve safety when working at heights.

The Tower Climber can be used on tower cranes, wind turbines, high voltage towers, and high-rise buildings. Because it eliminates climbing, the Tower Climber reduces the physical strain on employees and extends their job longevity.

Increased safety and efficiency when working at height

Key Features


Two-handle start-up switch

To use the Tower Climber, the operator must press and hold the switches on both handles simultaneously. If the operator releases either switch, the system stops immediately.


Remote operation system

The Tower Climber can be conveniently sent up and down without an operator at the push of a button. This allows the operator uptower to send the Climber down to a colleague at the bottom.


Top and bottom limit and ultimate limit protection

Thanks to the top and bottom limit switches, the Climber will stop automatically at the top and bottom of the tower. Additional safety is provided by the mechanical ultimate limit protection at the top and bottom.


Low battery protection function

Should the battery level fall to 15% or lower, the Climber will no longer allow ascent, but only descent.


Audible and visual alert while running

When the Tower Climber is in use, a light and an audible alarm will ensure other operators along the pathway are alerted to the approaching lift.


Collapsible footboards

The collapsible footboards enable rapid evacuation in case of emergency.
