These restrictions differentiate MCWP from builder's hoists. This International Standard is also applicable to permanently installed MCWP. This International Standard is applicable to work platforms which are elevated by a drive system and guided by and moved along their supporting masts, where the masts may or may not require lateral restraint from separate supporting structures.
