Stertil Dock Products has designed, manufactured and installed a scissor lift to ensure safe handling operations for one of the UK’s leading retailers at its store in Brixton.
The 1500kg capacity electro-hydraulic scissor lift is used to transport a variety of roll cages, garment rails and plastic dollies between a goods receiving area and the shop floor. One of the biggest challenges to overcome was the extremely confined space within which the lift was installed. As a result, the lift was delivered to the store as a set of components which were then assembled on site by Stertil’s installation engineers.
Although the distance between the two levels is less than a metre, Stertil Dock Products was commissioned to ensure that the lift’s design and operation complied with stringent Health & Safety regulations. The adjacent control panel incorporates up/down push buttons plus a hi-vis emergency stop button which is replicated by another installed on the lift. In addition, the liftís doors and sides are fully enclosed to prevent hands and feet becoming trapped.
