April 10, 2012Don’t exceed a safe reach – use a lift!
For those about to embark on a project involving the lifting on large objects – be they pieces of timber, pipes for air conditioning installation or ducting for ceiling systems – spare a thought for your back.
While it can be fine to lift and carry smaller, lighter objects between medium-level heights, as soon as your project requires large items to be moved from greater heights your back may begin to complain.
And not only that, once objects begin to travel longer vertical distances other people on the site may be in danger from falls, drops and other equally painful and project-halting occurrences.
With these things in mind, a canny project leader – whether for a home DIY job or a larger council-funded scheme – will ensure that safety is a priority.
Hiring a genie lift or Superlift can ensure both the safety of a site and efficiency of an undertaking – these machines are purpose-built for easy loading, with added outrigger legs and wheel locks for added stability.
Total extension can be as high as 7.5 metres, to allow a great range of movement while still being conveniently hand-operated.View more from - Lift and Shift
