3 Reasons to Use a Rolling Work Platform for Your Operation
Rolling work platforms offer the following benefits for various operations:
1. Easy Aerial Access
Rolling work platforms feature a simple design and straightforward operation, allowing workers to access elevated areas with ease. Units can be easily pushed or transported in “wheelbarrow” style (based on the model), making transportation around your facility fast and effortless. Each unit features a 42” work platform and 300 lb weight capacity, making it easy for workers to use tools and other small equipment at heights without worrying about running out of space or exceeding the capacity. In addition to easy aerial access, rolling work platforms can be used without only one worker, freeing up another member of your operation for other tasks and increasing productivity.
2. Lasting Durability and Performance
All rolling work platforms are constructed entirely from steel and come with a powder-coated finish to ensure lasting durability and performance in even the most demanding of environments. Each unit also features bolt-together construction, allowing you to easily replace any part as needed. This drastically reduces potential downtime while ensuring that you never need to replace the entire unit due to a single faulty component.
3. Reliable Safety
When it comes to working at heights and aerial access, safety is crucial. That is why every rolling work platform is designed to deliver exceptional stability when in use. This is achieved by offering units with and without positive locking systems. Units with a positive locking system have 4 wheels, but 2 of these wheels are locked in place when the operator steps on the ladder. Units without a positive locking system only have two wheels at the front of the unit, eliminating the need for a locking system as the unit can only be moved when lifted like a wheelbarrow. All rolling work platforms meet and exceed the compliance standards of both ANSI and OSHA, ensuring optimal safety in any environment.
