sara 'raises bar for safety with its scissor lifts'

09 June 2011

sara LBS’ new range of scissor lift tables conform to the highest safety standards in a range of applications

Built from steel for strength, the lifts have a maximum load of up to 12 tonnes as standard and include safety features including a ‘dead-man’ safety switch and safety trip edge.

The sara LBS scissor lift is an ideal solution in wide range of applications requiring load transfer between different levels such as: Vehicle Loading, Car Parking, Work Stations, Loading Bays and Disabled Access for public buildings.

The lifts, which are all designed to exceed the BS EN 1570:1998 + A2 2009 safety requirements for lifting tables, can be easily custom designed by sara engineers to provide unique solutions for specific requirements.

One of the many features included is the safety trip edge; designed to detect any possible obstructions and stop the lift immediately during descent, the safety edge is just one of the many features designed to prevent damage to the lifts and, more importantly, ensure personnel safety.

Other features include a ‘dead-man’ fail safe which stops the lift in the event of the control button being released and the option of a smooth or non-skid platform top.

Ed Wilks, Operations Manager for sara LBS, comments: “The new scissor lifts are ideal for a number of applications as they require very little space and are easy to install while still carrying a high load.

“They are designed to be operated with complete safety and built to last without the need of extensive maintenance. The design is also flexible and so we always try to develop a good working relationship with our customers to ensure that every solution meets their specific requirements.”

All scissor lifts are built using steel for the frames and scissor arms to maximise strength. The steel is treated with rust inhibiting, industrial strength paint finish; red as standard but other colours are available upon request. A remote power pack and cover is available and particularly useful for application where flooding or hosing down is likely to occur.
