DSP thinks big with 22.5 m high scissor lift

DSP Electrical Contractors has conquered narrow 1.75 m aisles and high level work on a current warehouse refit project using the UK’s first 1.2 m wide, 22.5 m working height electric scissor lift.

Driveable at full height, the new PB Lifttechnik S225-12ES platform is on hire from access rental firm Lifterz.

DSP is using the scissor to install over 1800 linear metres of roof-suspended, smoke detection equipment at heights up to 20 m. The 6-week contract is part of refurbishment work at the 212,000 sq ft Big Blue Warehouse in Birmingham, which is to be occupied by WHSmith.

The PB S225-12ES scissor also has a 10.3 degrees patented levelling system and is wind-rated at full height for work outdoor off-slab, as well as indoor on-slab.
