Access Basket

EFC Group offer a CE compliant, series produced model with a telescopic extension boom, which as standard is ready for operation in a Zone 1 hazardous area.




EFCOSB140 Access baskets are suitable for Zone 1 Hazardous Areas

The elevating Offshore Access System consists of hydraulically operated boom systems with a Work Basket sufficient enough to support one man plus small hand tools.

EFCOSB140 is equipped as standard with Ex proof controls and connections for air tools within the Work Basket and a lockable Secondary Control Station for remote and emergency operation. The secondary controls can be switched to over-ride the primary control within the basket.

The extent of our compliance with Standards and Regulations is restricted to those mentioned specifically in any offer, the main design standards used are DIN 15018 and also EN280 where practical.


The slewing column is a 'box' type fabrication, which incorporates the main boom and main lift cylinder pivots.

Boom System

The main boom is a fabricated box section with local reinforcing at the pivot and cylinder anchor bosses. The telescopic section is supported on slider pads to ensure self-aligning during telescoping The boom sections are driven by double acting hydraulic cylinders.

Hydraulic System

Proportional marine specification main control valves incorporating anti-shock valves for each function.Load holding valves are fitted on all cylinders and slewing for maximum safety

Work Basket

Automatic hydraulic self-levelling system to compensate for different boom angles throughout the operating envelope. Suitable for 5º/2º characteristics.

Safety Systems & Emergency Recovery: Hydraulic Positive Overload Prevention System

The overload cut out system stops the motions that are generating the overload but leaves active the motions that allow the machine to recover from the potential overload position and therefore enables the machine to remain operable.

No movements of hydraulic cylinders are possible when the machine is switched off.

An independent, portable, air driven power pack can be used for emergency recovery in the event of main systems hydraulic failure. This system plugs into the EFCOSB140 hydraulic system using quick release couplings and requires a 7 bar air supply from the platform.

Mounting Base

As an optional extra a tubular mounting base with bolted flange for mounting to rig’s supporting structure can be supplied
