Elevating Worker Platforms

Position Workers Without the Risks or Hassles of Ladders and Scaffolding

For assembly or maintenance operations where large structures, such as aircraft or heavy equipment, must be accessed at elevated or varying heights, Southworth offers custom configured lifts that can be designed or retrofitted into most operations. More flexible and safer than scaffolding or ladders, these worker platforms are also appropriate for stock picking from vertically stacked compartments of storage carousels or rack systems.

With the industry’s longest history and greatest experience, Southworth offers stable lifts in stationary or movable configurations in a multitude of platform sizes and lifting ranges. Handling Concepts works with the customer to accommodate budgetary limitations as well as unique, application-specific requirements.

Avoiding the risks of ladders and the hassles of scaffolding while gaining the speed, flexibility and security of a powered platform creates a more productive and safer work environment.
