Scissor lifts have been long standing players in the materials handling industry. Not only do they allow for minimum impact on operators, but their ability to reach great heights makes them a handy piece of equipment to have around.
Access equipment such as scissor lifts, allows businesses to really make the most out of the space that they have.
Hard to reach areas?
Need to change a light bulb twenty feet up?
Need to repaint the ceiling?
No problem – some models of scissor lift can reach heights of up to 18.8m (62 feet).
Simple to operate, lifts can also make the world of difference to your employees. Injuries (such as RSI) can be decreased as the need to bend and stretch is reduced.
Despite their ability to reach great heights, scissor lifts themselves take up minimal space when decompressed and can be easily stored in smaller areas.
With various options available (hydraulic, pneumatic and mechanical), scissor lifts can be portable or motionless, allowing for even greater flexibility. As such, they have the ability to be used both indoors and outdoors. These clever pieces of equipment are hardy and reliable (though outside use can be limited by the weather – see Scissor Lift Safety Practices for more information).
