Industrial Lifting Platforms

Power-Lifts outdoor lifting platform


Power-Lifts (www.powerlift.co.uk) were approached by an architect for a small retail centre to provide a bespoke outdoor platform lift table custom designed to blend in sympathetically with the listed building and its railings.

The lifting platform needed to be multi-purpose so that it could be used by traders to receive deliveries and assist wheelchair users, the disabled and mobility restricted. The barrier rails were designed to be architecturally attractive as well as extremely robust and vandal resistant. The gate locks have to be weatherproof and the lift floor / platform is covered with local stone and harmonious with the surrounding paving.

Power-Lifts introduced Jonathan Stokes of Lift man (www.liftman.co.uk) from St. Austell to the developers as the ideal partner to turn their needs into reality. Liftman made several visits to site and then worked with Power-Lifts to specify a tailor made IP65 weatherproof, two tonne capacity double vertical scissor lift table with specially fabricated corrosion resistant, profiled solid steel armsets, 10mm. thick steel deck plate and stainless steel axle and cylinder pins. To restrict ingress to the undersides of the lift when raised galvanised steel wire mesh curtains were fitted.

UK based Power-Lifts Limited supply heavy duty, engineered scissor lift tables to industries across the World. Most of Power-Lifts units can also be offered with a galvanised finish or in stainless steel. Power-Lifts scissor lift tables can be electro-hydraulic or rigid / push chain actuated.
