As the construction industry continues to modernize its business operation, telematics technology is now being widely adopted and more commonly used in the aerial rental market.
When the new ANSI A92 (United States) and CSA B354 (Canada) standards go into effect, they will drive alignment with ISO standards, which impacts the way aerial access equipment is designed, manufactured, maintained and operated globally.
Telehandlers are multi-purpose machines that lift, move and place material.
From reading about it in countless articles within trade magazines to conversations with peers, it’s easy to understand that telematics can bring a lot of benefits to rental businesses.
Scissor lifts are a classification of manlift often found in construction and facility maintenance applications designed to elevate workers and their tools to working heights ranging from 5.9 m (19 ft) to 17.9 (59 ft).
Around the globe, capital cities and large provincial towns are going greener.
As aerial industry standards continue to become more closely aligned worldwide, manufacturers like Genie, who produce scissor lifts (a classification of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) named for their lifting mechanism design — a stack of crossed tubes that work in a scissor-like fashion when the platform is raised and lowered) for global markets are taking a closer look at how requirements in these standards impact machine design and safe use.
It pays to be an expert in the equipment industry.
When looking at a machine’s service and repair from that perspective, downtime costs a rental business big time.
Safety is always job one on aerial worksites.
“We think of BIM as a beginning-to-end concept,” says Josh Lyons, architect for The Thrasher Group, an architecture, engineering and field services company, headquartered in Bridgeport, West Virginia, US.
In today’s competitive market, we, at Genie, know that it is more important than ever for you to establish and earn your rental customers’ respect as a trusted advisor.
Technology is changing the way the world does business.
Prior to the introduction of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) in the 1970s, construction industry professionals relied almost exclusively on ladders and scaffolding to access major work at height projects.
Increased market competition and competitive rental rates are significant challenges for rental companies.
Part of the road, and in particular a series of tight bends leading to Grand'Rivière, a small, isolated fishing village located at the north of Martinique on the foothills of Mount Pelée, was in urgent need of reinforcement.
Over the past few years, it has become increasing difficult for rental companies to find engineers and service technicians with the right experience.
