Stationary work platform are designed to help workers complete tasks at a comfortable height for reducing back injuries and fatigue. They may be equipped with casters to provide mobility, or they may be fixed to the floor for stability. These systems may have a wide range of features including adjustable height, nonslip surfaces, and a corrosion-resistant material. They can be powder-coated for a durable finish that can hold up to corrosive chemicals or indoor-outdoor use.
What is an example of a work platform?
To make work more efficient, these units are often used in confined shop floors to maximize space for workspaces or OEM equipment. They can also increase safety by lowering the risk of fall hazards in plant and manufacturing environments. The units can be expanded to increase workspace for team or company growth.
A movable work platform is typically used on construction projects and maintenance applications to allow workers to access higher areas. These systems are a good alternative to ladders, scaffolds, or aerial lifts such as MEWPs. They can be maneuvered in narrow spaces and have locking mechanisms that prevent workers from leaving the platform during use. They can be fitted with antislip grating for stable footing.
To simplify mobilization, a number of these units can be docked together in coupled operation. The target position under the load is approached accurately and collision-free with the assistance of a sensor-supported system. This technology allows sensitive movement (multidirectional steering) and lifting to be synchronized and purely electric. To control the vehicle, a customer-specific HMI display is located on the work platform.
