Custom Work Platform Introduced

LPI Lift Systems, Eau Claire, Wis., has introduced a large custom work platform used in the process of loading flatbed trailers. Added to the company's line of specialty lifts and aerial work platforms, the new platform increases safety and efficiency by providing both a fall prevention system and work area for staging the packing materials used in constructing shipping crates.

The platform measures 45-ft. long by 72-in. wide and extends from a lowered height of 5 ft. to a maximum raised height of 12 ft. 6 in. The platform's lift capacity is 1500 pounds. The unit has two independent control stations, as well as a floor-mounted pedestal control station that includes Emergency Stop, a Z-axis control for up and down movement, and a Y-axis control for the extension and retraction of platform movement.

In addition, the platform's selector switch secures the platform and determines whether the controls on the platform can be operated with a single station by one person or requires two station operation when more than one worker is on the platform. A safety rail running the length of the platform is mounted on its center rail to enable the attachment of fall prevention lanyards.

Additional information can be obtained by contacting the company at 800 Wisconsin Street, Unit 10, Eau Claire, Wis. 54703; (800) 657-6956;
