Aerial platforms have an important role to play on construction sites because they offer a safe and controlled way to reach high places or areas that aren’t accessible by normal means. They provide a way for teams to do jobs in industries such as shipping, property development, retailing and warehousing. If you want to rent or hire lifting equipment for your business but aren’t sure whether you need a telescopic boom lift, scissor lift or articulating boom lift, here’s what each one is best at. No matter which one you decide on, you can rest assured that you’ll find it at a competitive price at Sterling Access.
Scissor lifts are useful if you need to install windows on buildings that are as high as six floors or if you want to apply paint to them. They can be used indoors and outdoors and are versatile enough to be used on construction sites and entertainment sites. If you need to repair a sports scoreboard or hang up signs at a concert venue, a scissor lift will be more than enough.
Articulating Boom Lifts
When it comes to articulating boom lifts, no barriers and obstacles will get in its way. The boom of the lift has space to transport and carry two workers to difficult to reach areas. What makes it a powerful addition to any construction site is that its boom is divided into sections that allow the employee operating it to have improved access and reach. Articulating boom lifts are a good choice for working at height.
Telescopic Boom Lifts
Telescopic boom lifts are terrific when it comes to horizontal reach, making access to hard to reach places simple. Because certain stacked items might be difficult or dangerous to get close to, this lift will let your team get close enough to do their work but not put them in danger. Telescopic boom lifts also works well if you need access to a roof.
