    Scissor lifts for lighting, cleaning and creativity

    As mere human beings, our natural reach is finite and often exceeded by many project-based access requirements.

    Scissor lifts can maximise safety, convenience and height capacity - so you may be able to solve your next project's access problems by hiring one of these useful pieces of equipment.

    Available in a range of sizes depending on the requirements of your undertaking, lifts can reach as high as 43 feet and are great for many different jobs.

    Cleaning roofs and barns, attending to lighting issues in high lofts or shed ceilings, painting, plumbing and picking of stock can all be achieved in a safer and more timely manner with the help of a scissor lift.

    Access hire can also benefit activities that are a bit more creative than your everyday maintenance project.

    For example, Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Australia put a scissor lift to good use when New York street artist Craig Costello - also known as 'KR' - unveiled his giant sculpture in Sydney's Angel Place today (April 26).

    Television and film projects also often require extended access to set design and camera features which hire of a lift can take care of.

    With practicality in mind, these types of lifts usually incorporate a well-appointed extending deck, where the operator can access auxiliary power for using other electric tools at height.
