It’s time for another product review here at Browns. This week, we’ve been thinking a lot about safety when working at height, so we’ve decided to take a closer look at some of our most popular working at height equipment: the Pecolift Elevated Work Platform, manufactured by Zarges UK.
An Accessible Alternative to Ladders
Designed for use in a wide variety of work environments, the Pecolift Elevated Work Platform is a versatile piece of access equipment that represents a safe and more accessible alternative to traditional steps, ladders, podiums and scaffold towers.
Users simply step on to the Pecolift’s platform at ground level; there’s no need for any climbing or stepping up, and the platform can then be manually elevated to a working height of up to 3.5 metres.
With extra safety features, including automatic braking on the platform’s front rubber feet when the user enters the basket and automatic braking on the rear wheels the moment the platform begins to rise, the Pecolift is a reassuringly secure piece of equipment that can enable more staff members to access items stored at height without the need for ladders.
The Pecolift Elevated Work Platform complies with European machinery directives 2009 onwards and EN280, making it a reliable choice for busy companies.
No Battery, No Charging
One of the major draws of the Pecolift Elevated Work Platform, besides its increased security and accessibility, is the fact that the platform has no engine or battery: in fact, this is the world’s first non-battery-powered, hand windlass-operated elevated work platform.
The Pecolift’s innovative design means that it’s ready for use at any time: there’s no charging time, no increased energy spend and almost none of the maintenance that would be required for other low level mechanical lifts.
For businesses looking for a secure, efficient and hassle-free piece of access equipment that offers a simple way of fulfilling Health and Safety Requirements in line with the Working at Height Regulations 2005, the Pecolift is an excellent option.
A Compact and Lightweight Work Platform
The Pecolift Elevated Work Platform weighs only 180kg, is quick and easy to manoeuvre, and has a minimal footprint, taking up much less space than many podiums or platform steps. But despite its modest size, the Pecolift offers consistently high performance: the platform offers unlimited lift cycles and can be used 24/7 without issue.
