The SuperDeck is a retractable loading platform system ideally positioned vertically one above the other for fast delivery of building materials, directly to the designated floor of a multi-storey building. The average 5 storey building requires five units whilst larger 50 storey buildings may need between 30 decks.

At Preston Hire, we have been around for over four decades. When John Preston started the company, his focus was on getting the job done right. This led him to instil hard work and perfection in his men, but it also triggered a genius of innovation that positioned the company as the world’s leading in construction equipment hire.
After launching a highly successful modular scaffolding system, he turned his attention to creating a safer, more productive loading platform for multi-level buildings. He realised that the existing crane loading platforms made of scrap steel were highly unsafe, restricted crane ropes, and hindered construction progress.
The idea of the SuperDecks was refined for many years until officially launched in 1998. The exciting new product was first launched here in Australia and quickly gained mainstream adoption. The reason for its popularity was its simplicity and effectiveness.
The underlying concept of the Preston Hire SuperDeck is simple enough. Like a stack of drawers that you can pull in and out, it consists of retractable loading platforms that together make up a system which can be stacked on multi-level construction sites.
It is a cantilevered crane loading platform capable of moving in and out of its fixed position. This way, it makes it way easier to access crane loading by getting in and out of the way easily. With a loading capacity or up to 5,000 kg/5 tons/11,000 pounds, it is truly a supersize ‘drawer’ system.
The retractable loading platforms are installed on each level or floor using either props or bolts. The magic lies in how quickly and easily they can be installed – a team of skilled men can do it in 20 minutes or less for each level.
Once installed, a single person can operate the movable platform easily. They can get the retractable platform in or out to get loads into the level. Clearly, such a platform can have many uses on a construction site.
The simple and fast installation of the SuperDeck means that you can get to using it right away. The range of applications it helps out in a site are many and varied, but here are a few of the ways in which the SuperDeck proves itself invaluable:
Just like any other crane loading platform, the SuperDeck’s main use in the loading of material, equipment, and supplies to and from the various levels of a building under construction. Normally, a crane would do that through its horizontal movement, but this process takes time and can be quite complicated.
The platform moves in and out to receive the load, meaning that the crane only needs to move up and down. Whatever you need to lift, the SuperDeck will make reception and loading on any level much more convenient.
Construction sites will always be cluttered, and sometimes you need to keep a few things somewhere while you finish work on the floor. When you have supplies delivered to a particular floor, leave them right there on the platform and let everyone know where to collect them. You will be happier for the added freedom.
Apart from the storage of supplies, a SuperDeck platform is an excellent site to put away all the debris generated. As you know, that can be a lot and require a lot of clean-up effort later. However, if you opt to use the platform as a central storage location for all your waste, the crane can take it off your back in a minute when you’re done.
The extendable platform is a great way to ensure safety below. In the time it takes to erect guardrails and fall protection scaffolds, SuperDeck platforms can provide essential protection from those and even, in some cases, eliminate the need for scaffolding all together.
Objects falling from buildings and cranes form one of the biggest dangers on sites, but you can now mitigate that risk with these amazing retractable loading platforms for cranes.
