These lifting machines allow to move at the height both vertically and horizontally. They have irretrievably replaced older means of lifting people and instruments up to the required height. Today aerial platforms are widely used for implementation of construction and industrial projects, various outdoor tasks – from banner hanging to washing windows and roof repairing. It has never been easier to reach an elevated point than now when we have boom lifts. What is more, it’s done in a safe manner when injury risk is minimized compared to scaffolding or ladders.
Articulating boom lifts: technical aspect
Basically, there are two main types of boom lifts – telescopic and articulating ones. This publication will cover the special features and benefits of articulating aerial lifts. The main difference between the two types is the ability of arms to bend, articulating boom lifts feature bending arms and therefore are more maneuverable on site than telescopic ones. Although, the weight capacity of articulating boom lifts is not so outstanding than the one of telescopic aerial platforms. That is why, people use articulating aerial lifts when they need to move around various objects and maneuver between them over the necessity to lift heavy loads. This ability is crucial for complex objects, indoor works or tight spaces with crowds of people.
