Here is the scenario Recessed light above the stairs is out. you can't use a pole because the trim also popped out. How do you change the bulb and fix the trim? oh and you cant reach it from the 2nd floor.

There should be ladders with extendable feet exactly for that purpose.

Baker style scaffolding is also a possibilty. I have used this in stairways before and it worked quite well.

How about a "Little Giant"??

Or watch that the electrical engineer doesn't place fixtures in places like that in the first place...

I saw a building where 50' scaffolding had to be erected to change 4 lamps. No scissor lift access...

First contract engineer for design of "Gantry" system.

Next throw out a few RFP's and wait for the RFI's from various contractors of the GC and Metal Working variety.

Then approach the client with the initial contact costs and further proposal. Once they, or you are realeased from the hospital, you may or may not get the go ahead to proceed.

If you get the go ahead, have the welding shop get your brackets and platform ready for the GC to install, via a proffessional rigging crew subbed out by him at 20% mark-up. Get the Engineer to sign-off, change your bulb, same in reverse for removal. Patch and paint NIC.

e57 thanks but the bulb is directly above the steps that ladder won't work. A scissor lift wont work either. I ended up using a extension ladder squeezing it in between the Bannister and the 2nd floor. I was very nervous that I would drop the ladder and damage something real bad. but what do you when you can't squueze a ladder in like that?
