Get out of the “Stone Age” & join the “REVOLUTION”

“CAT-R“ Tower Vans

The CAT-R tower system is nautical miles ahead of the standard box like tower units with its “Battle ship” like glass design and tasteful stealth fighter lines.

The sealed unit double pane glass inserts are canted to mimic the same profile angles as the cons of modern battleships. This technology cancels interior light reflection off the glass and subdues exterior UV helping maintain interior climate temperatures. The double pane glass coupled with the interior network of adjustable window vents allow the 10 kW, 1800 BTU forced air HVAC unit to maintain fog free windows.

“R” rated windows & R15 rated walls/ceiling along with a climate control unit maintain a comfortable work environment for your operators. Gone are the days of the through the wall AC/heating unit that is always froze up in the summer – being supported by 2 plug-in construction heaters in the winter tripping breakers or being replaced every season because the unit has failed.

The wrap around MODULAR operator push button console overs more visibility to plant with its lower profile. Separate sections allow customers to separate essential or non-essential equipment on the panel for operator clarity. With its “modular” design expansion panels can be added later as your operation grows. The overhead meter panel with indicator lights frees up control console space and allows for an increased number of meters so customers can monitor larger quantities of there essential production equipment.

The control panels interior has been separated into sections and individual trip indicators added to simply customer-based trouble shooting on intense control-based systems like cone safeties & VFD’s.

The “OH&S” compliant “E-stop” has been coupled with our “By-Pass” switch allowing for customers to maintain a true E-stop to protect their staff. But still maintain the ability to shut down large portions of their operation during production-based failures – this helps to eliminate messes, human error and prevent unnecessary down time.

The CAT-R tower system maintains counter sunk exterior lighting package that has no need for removal during mobilization. This prevents the loss or damage of expensive lighting systems and more importantly eliminates the need for your staff to mount tower-based lighting in precarious positions with fall arrest or other lift means. Just raise the tower and you have lighting.


The fully hand railed catwalk system allows your operators to maintain clean windows in a safe fashion. Its broken rain canted edge working in conjunction with our everted 2-stage weather sealing system eliminates water from entering the vans interior. The hand rail design allows for folding in any configuration for ease on Mobe day. The exterior mounted access ladder allows 2-point access/egress to the tower and its 30” bottom folding section actually allows you to reach the ladder from ground level.

The exterior of the unit is coated in durable Box liner coating which far exceeds the current “peeling” paint scheme we encounter on most towers after a few seasons. This coating also limits slips/trips on the catwalk while dramatically improving the grip you get on handrails with wet slippery gloves. Available in custom colors so your “Flagship” van can fly your company flag with “pride”.


The CAT-R tower system is raised/lowered with 2 flush wall mounted hydraulic rams leaving a wide-open area under the tower versus the common scissor lift design increasing available storage area. Actuator controlled pins allow for the securement of the tower from a safe position. No more operators walking under an unsecured tower unit to install the pins. The actuator-based pins are complimented to a mechanical lock per side for redundancy and increased safety.

Simple question – “Do you want a CUT ABOVE THE REST”?

Distinct tower design, Superior Climate conditions. Future growth with countless expansion opportunities & features. Beneficial operator controls with ease of trouble shooting. Sense of security and assurance with features like By-pass, safety pins and the full catwalk system. Built to last, enduring everything you can throw at it.
