Equipment Access Platforms
Equipment access platforms provide a safe way to conduct work at height in environments such as warehouses and factories. These versatile solutions mitigate health and safety risks and offer significant time and cost savings compared to traditional methods such as ladders and scaffold towers.
Powered access platforms are mobile and can be driven to a job site, set up, used and then driven away – meaning less time is spent conducting risk assessments and setting up equipment onsite. This saves valuable working hours and allows for more work to be completed in the same amount of time. They are also versatile and easily move mid-job, resolving issues such as confined spaces or difficult to reach areas.
Elevate Your Efficiency: Choosing the Ideal Equipment Access Platform for Your Needs
Available for both sale and hire, there are a number of different makes and models of powered access platform to choose from depending on the requirements of a job. Scissor lifts use criss-cross supports that rise from a motorised base to hold the worker while they work in various locations, whereas boom lifts have a telescopic arm that can avoid obstacles and allow for greater horizontal reach. There are even spider lifts designed for confined spaces and building interiors that are compact, lightweight with low ground pressure and can fit through standard sized doorways and gates.
Some powered access platforms are more environmentally friendly than others, helping businesses to reduce their carbon footprint and adhere to environmental regulations. These types of access platforms are usually electric and have a lower fuel consumption which also results in reduced operating costs.
