Access Platforms

Powered access platforms from Hire Safe Solutions are the best way to get to those hard to reach places during construction, maintenance or decoration work. We offer a wide range of access platforms for both rental and for purchase, no matter your requirements, we’re confident we’ve got the solution you need. When working at height, we know that having the right machine for the job is not only convenient but can be essential for safe work. So how do you know which of our available mobile powered access solutions are right for you?

The first thing to consider is the power the machine uses. Our lifts come in both diesel and electric powered varieties. The general rule is that, if the machine is being used inside  such as in a warehouse environment  you’ll want a battery or bi-fuel solution. If you’re working outside on a building site then diesel powered equipment is the most suitable option.

The next question is, what kind of work are you doing and under what conditions? access platform machines can come in all shapes and sizes, from traditional articulated cherry pickers to scissor lifts and even to more specialist designs such as crawler booms and spider lifts.

Cherry pickers, also known as articulated boom lifts, are incredibly versatile and can be used for almost any task. Due to the adaptability of the design, cherry pickers come in a variety of types. If the lift is required for tasks across various sites, then the added mobility of vehicle or trailer mounted platforms are ideal. For work on uneven ground, the rugged tracks and sturdy chassis of a crawler boom allows operators to complete work at heights over 20 metres safely and securely.

Scissor lifts provide a more vertical access solution. Offering operators working heights up to 34 metres, these lifts are designed with large working platforms of up to eight metres in length, making them ideal for work that requires large amounts of equipment or supplies.

All of our self propelled and powered access platforms are available for delivery to sites nationwide and if you need the equipment yesterday we can organise next day delivery for almost all of our range. All of our machines are inspected, safety tested and maintained to high standards by our experienced technicians, meaning you can be sure that your team are working at height safely when using Hire Safe Solutions equipment.

As well as the rental and sale of powered access platforms, we also offer a wide range of safety training classes in training centres nationwide. For more information on the classes we offer, including working at height, asbestos awareness, a variety of IPAF certified classes and more, please see our online training services catalogue. Make sure the staff at your company can work safely with industry training from Hire Safe Solutions.
