fellow flat glass experts, attached is a diagram I made (dont laugh) of a job we got to do.

safety film R&R. its in the heart of san francisco, sidewalk is going downward or upward depending on where you are coming from. scaffolling is something we rarely use, as to most jobs are on flat ground or reachable with latters...this one, I try renting out a scaffolling system locally, they told me I can adjust the system in any angle, but the base for scaffolds have a flat platform. her'es a diagram :rollin

sounds like you've got it covered. so the film you're removing and reinstalling is exterior? I'm surprised how many exterior installations some of you guys do. I do maybe 1 every 2 years. just the way I like it. :rollin

this past year 75% was based on just exterior installs, frankly I like it more, you dont have to deal with crap inside the building, just go up to the windows slap the film on :lol2

but yea, this particular, is exterior remove and reinstall..

on these windows, they are about 85" tall, and 100" wide, previous installers used a 60" roll and took it up as far is it went, and didnt bother to do the other 25" taht were left to cover :rollin I mean, what is the reason to install safety film since you are not doing it completely?

if there is flat ground somewhere near I would say rent a boom lift cause I dont think a cherry picker (genie lift) will work on a slope, (not safely anyways). With the boom lift it will be alot easier and you can have 2 guys on the lift as opposed to one guy, which will help on a window that size and competing with the wind and elements.

On angles and stairways we use scafolding with screw jacks. This allows us to adjust the height and keep the walk board level

We have a ladder system that attaches to the legs of our ext. ladder it's for stairs one leg can be longer than the other so it remains level.

yes we were going to rent scafolding like that but the base at the bottom is square or flat. most have wheels....
