Balcony installer training is critical to good project success. Especially given the high risk factors like working from heights. Despite the common nature of balcony installation on high rise residential projects, there is no specific training available, with organisations like CITB suggesting, carpentry, sheet metal or fenestration as alternatives.
With our breadth of balcony installation experience, and with multiple certified Appointed Persons and Slingers in house, we now run our own comprehensive offsite balcony installer training. This enables operatives to learn the fundamentals to installing balconies safely and effectively.
Attendees undergo both class room style theory training and hands on practical training in balcony install. This includes the use of Sapphire’s installation innovations, for example counter balance lifters and internal door guarding system.
Sapphire mandates that all installers who will be fitting the balconies, whether they be Sapphire Install Partners, façade installers, metalworkers etc. undergo this training which is part of Sapphire’s service. After the Balcony Installer Training has been completed, Sapphire issue certificates of attendance. This should compliment the individuals industry qualifications which are necessary for their role in the install team. For example, slingers, signallers, CSCS, SSSTS, SMSTS, etc.
