Genie Accessory Redesigned to Meet ANSI Standards

Genie Industries, Redmond, Wash., has introduced the Super-Straddle accessory redesign. The Super-Straddle is an attachment that allows operators to mount a Genie AWP Super Series personnel lift above obstacles such as fixed seating in theaters, auditoriums and convention centers. It provides up and over access for the Genie AWP Super Series to be used in spaces that are otherwise inaccessible and hard to reach. The new Genie Super-Straddle was redesigned to meet the latest ANSI A92.3 standards and is CE compliant.

“The Super-Straddle is a versatile, efficient accessory for facilities such as schools and churches,” said Kim Williams, senior market analyst, Genie Industries. “It allows easy overhead access for maintenance like changing light bulbs, replacing ceiling panels and even for touching up paint.”

Easy to assemble and operate, the new Super-Straddle weighs 580 pounds and provides up to 4 feet of vertical clearance from the ground. The end frames adjust for leveling on floors with slopes up to six degrees. Additionally, display lights on the AWP Super Series lift's ground control panel will notify operators when the Super-Straddle is set up correctly and ready to operate.

One of many accessories available with the Genie AWP product line, the Super-Straddle is compatible with all Genie AWP Super Series models (AWP-20S, -25S, -30S, -36S and -40S) manufactured since 1996.
