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.
Jobsite safety needs to be a priority for contractors, distributors and manufacturers alike.
Telescopic and articulating boom lifts rotate, elevate and extend multiple boom sections to help operators access difficult to reach worksites.
Power systems for aerial work platforms continue to evolve, just like the machines they drive.
In order for your customers to get the maximum performance out of a mobile elevating work platform (MEWP), it is important that you consider what type of tyre or track is best suited for their worksite environment and needs.
At Genie, our number one priority is to provide safe, productive Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWP) for our customers.
For more than 50 years, Genie has successively brought to market solutions that focus on operator safety.
