Safe. Smart. Efficient.
Those three words sum up industry giant Aluma Systems.
Innovation and creativity in a safe working environment are the hallmarks of Aluma Systems, the industrial services specialists.
The Toronto-headquarted company, one of the leading names in industrial services and concrete construction, is displaying some of its leading edge new products at the Global Petroleum Show and Canadian International Petroleum Conference, June 8-10 at Stampede Park.

“Our major focus will be on some of the exciting new products we have,” says Rick Moran, area sales manager for Aluma Systems in Edmonton.
The new products on display at the Petroleum Show are indicative of the innovation that Aluma has long been known for.
“These new products are designed to increase productivity on your site for the workers erecting the scaffolding,” says Moran.
These new Aluma Systems products have been designed to last, resulting in lower costs to the user.
“The longevity of the product is 15 years instead of five, making the rental rates cheaper because the products last longer.”
Among the new products on display at the Petroleum Show will be:
* Swing gate: This award- winning product has been designed to be used stand alone. It positively stops at closed positions and safety supports all loads without the need for a separate stop. The ledger head swivels, allowing the gate to be installed either right or left, and swinging either in or out. It can be easily converted from ledger head attachment to bold clamp attachment.
* System toeboard: This lightweight, galvanized CRS construction toeboard uses an innovative connection bracket for both straight run and corner connections.
* System ladder cage: Now identical to access ladder cage, except for wedge keeper which is designed to insert and clamp to open channel strut of new system ladder.
The proprietary Sure Lock System Scaffold is the heart of the company’s access technology product line. Its design allows customers to replace single components rather than entire frames.
This modular scaffolding system is erected quickly, producing major savings in time and in labour costs while meeting the demands for safety, ease of handling and less maintenance.
In development for two years, new Sure Lock accessories put this already remarkable system at the forefront of safety, efficiency and versatility on the job site.
Aluma Systems began in 1972 with a mission to design a superior forming system for high-rise concrete construction. The company’s initial products revolutionized shoring and forming performance, and in 1980 Aluma began offering access scaffolding and industrial maintenance in addition to an expanding range of forming and shoring products and services.
Building on a tradition of excellence in engineering and a customer-focused approach, Aluma Systems has become one of the world’s leading suppliers of proprietary equipment and related construction technology services. From plant turnarounds to deep-water drilling projects, from refinery maintenance to power plant construction, the company knows how to get the job done with proven access technologies, custom engineering expertise, and leading edge project management systems.
Recently, Shell Canada selected Aluma Systems to supply rental scaffolding and labour when required for maintenance projects and shutdowns for up to four refineries and plants located in Montreal, Sarnia, Albian Sands in Fort McMurray and Scotsford in Fort Saskatchewan.
Aluma’s superior track record and ceaseless quest for innovation means major savings for its clients. Aluma Systems has long been known for its commitment to delivering industrial services and scaffolding programs that are among the safest, most innovative and efficient in the market.
An uncompromising commitment to workplace safety has always been the number-one priority for Aluma Systems. In 2002, the company was awarded the prestigious Gordon M. Vipond Memorial Trophy from the Canadian Construction Association (CCA) for outstanding safety achievements.
“Our solutions make it possible for a construction project to finish sooner and for processes to begin more quickly during a plant shutdown,” says Mike Batchelor, president and general manager, Aluma’s Industrial Services Division.
“In the end, everything we do is directed at making a positive contribution to our customers’ success. That’s what it’s all about – and it’s the only yardstick we use to measure our own performance.”
