Low level platforms offer a variety of advantages over traditional methods of working at height such as ladders and scaffolding.
Low level access machines are a safe and secure method for operators to work at height over time-honoured methods of access such as ladders, steps and aluminium towers. The risk of injuries is exceptionally low as operators are enclosed within the interlocked gates of the platform.
Low level platforms have the short setup times of ladders and steps along with enhanced safety and a more versatile working environment. Access platforms are both quicker to setup and relocate than scaffolding.
Low level access platforms can be used to carry out a wide range of tasks in the maintenance and construction industries. Platforms allow workers to be elevated with their tools, and with non-marking tyres, are ideal for operating in warehouses and a variety of workplaces.
Low level platforms are lightweight, giving a lower floor loading pressure compared to other powered accessible platforms such as scissor lifts.
A push around vertical (PAV) platform is a manual platform with a hydraulically powered lifting mechanism to enable an operative to work at height. A PAV platform must be physically pushed or pulled into place.
An operative can be lifted to height safely with tools and materials which make PAVs a popular choice for facilities management tasks such as lighting and air conditioning maintenance. Examples of push around vertical platforms include the Power Tower Pecolift that can reach working heights of up to 3.5M.
Push Around Vertical (PAV) Platforms can also be categorized as manually propelled MEWPs and known as aerial work platforms, personnel lifts or push-arounds.
An electric mast boom is a powered access platform that traverses a vertical mast to provide access at height for operatives. Mast booms can be driven into place whilst the platform is elevated and offer access to hard to reach and confined spaces, with a tight turning circle and compact chassis.
An example of an electric mast boom is the Genie Runabout GR 15 which is a battery powered low level access platform only 0.75m wide that can fit through most doorways and a working height of 6.35m.
