What is access equipment?
Access equipment is the broad term given to the range of elevating work platforms (EWP’s) that mechanically raise and lower operators in a safe manner to access objects and jobs at high levels.
The various configurations of access equipment facilitate operators to reach tricky and hard to reach areas.
Types of access equipment
Small, single person access equipment, personnel lifts such as stock pickers and vertical mast lifts offer flexibility and versatility to access a range of heights in indoor applications such as cleaning or building maintenance.
Personnel lifts can either be self-propelled battery electric units or push around lifts.
Scissor lifts are work platforms that can only move vertically up and down on which personnel, equipment and materials can be raised or lowered to complete work.
Scissor lifts can be self-propelled, trailer or truck mounted and have optional outrigger stabilisers to provide additional stability at extreme heights or when working outdoors.
There are a number of sub-categories of scissor lifts including:
- Hydraulic scissor lifts
- Diesel scissor lifts
- Electric scissor lifts
- Rough terrain scissor lifts
- Pneumatic scissor lifts
Boom lifts feature a platform or bucket that is attached to a long arm that is secured to a securely grounded base.
The hydraulically controlled arm allows the platform or bucket to extend out and rise up and down to position workers, equipment and materials into place to complete work at extended heights or hard to reach places.
There two main types of boom lift sub categories are articulating or telescopic boom lifts.
Articulating boom lift arms bend while telescopic boom lift arms remain straight.
The rigid arm design of telescopic booms allow them to lift heavier weights while the articulating booms bending allow them to reach tight and hard to reach places easier.
