Where best to use a scissor lift?

A scissor lift is a mobile work platform designed to drive at a safe height. Ideal for working indoors between racking systems, within a warehouse or logistics environment, fitting lighting, rooflights, sprinklers, or even fire alarms. Outdoors applications include cladding, curtain walling, fitting external signage, window replacement or exterior painting to name but a few.

This type of lift does not provide outreach other than a small roll out deck that depending upon the machine increases the deck size by anything from 0.5m to 1.2m. As scissor lifts operate vertically to allow access to areas at height the machine must be on level ground and sited directly below or alongside the target work area.  If you can’t get this close then you may wish to consider a Cherry Picker rather than scissor lift hire. Feel free to take advantage of our free site survey if you are not sure what you need.  National Platforms network of members can ensure fast, flexible machine hire whatever the environment may be.
