Colgate brings to its customers electric swing staging called Hi-Lo and Tractel Climbers. Colgate Scaffolding is the Tri-State distributor of Hi-Lo and Tractel Climbers. This powered scaffolding has received the S.I.A.'s National Safety Award.

Modular Staging

Hi-Lo Climbers Model 355

Hi-Lo Climbers give true meaning to the term Modular. Modular means complete versatility & flexibility. The efficient design allows the user to assemble a staging system easily into a vast array of configurations that accommodate today's modern architectural shapes.


  • Section of 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10-foot allow lengths of up to 40 feet with 1,000 lb. loads. Standard Corner Sections of 15°, 30°, 45°, 60° and 90° can be assembled to conform to virtually any shape. Cantilever Sections extend the overall length to 52 feet.
  • Ruggedness, strength and safety result from the custom designed, extra strong extruded aluminum truss (Section 2) that incorporates the toe board.
  • Lightweight aluminum knockdown Sections are easily transported, set-up and stored in a limited floor space. A dismantled 40-foot stage with hoists and accessories can be delivered in a pickup truck.

Manual Suspended Scaffolding

In addition to the electric swing staging, Colgate carries two types of manual suspended scaffolds. The manual systems are suitable for smaller jobs where electric swings are not needed. The two major types of systems are the Grip Hoist system and the Block and Fall. The block and fall is a rope scaffold which consists of 3/4 inch rope and two pulleys; this system is preferred by painters and masons. The Grip Hoist system is a mechanical jack that climbs a wire rope. This system is used by general contractors and is one of the safest manual swings around.

Yokee™ Fall Arrest Garments

A Yorkee™ is a patented combination clothing/safety harness for fall arrest and rescues from confined spaces. It is easy to use, just put the garment on and buckle up. The Yokee may be used by employees working at dangerous heights or in confined spaces. It meets OSHA, ANSI and CSA regulations. Our unique design has a comfortable fit and will be custom fit to the wearer of the garment. Since the harness is sewn to the inside of the garment (although not limited to the inside) it is protected from environmental elements such as ultraviolet light, inclement weather, abrasives, water and more.

The Yokee product is more likely to be worn by people who need to wear a harness. A bright florescent safety strip is sewn to the leg of the garment to identify that the wearer is in a harness. OSHA and others will know that the person wearing our product is in a safety harness.

  • Increase safety
  • Insures OSHA compliance
  • Lowers liability and accident claims
  • Saves man hours - Less setup time
  • A bright florescent safety strip is sewn to the leg of the garment to identify that the wearer is in a harness.
