Snorkel Electric Boom Lift
Kinds of Man Lifts
Designed specifically to vertically raise personnel to higher areas, scissor lifts are common in the construction business to help transport or lift personnel form one place to another. Man lifts are power-driven and provide steps or platforms and special handholds to provide safe transport. The kind of construction work being done would decide precisely which kind of man lift will be used in a project.
Electrically Insulated Man Lifts
Based on Man and Material Lift Engineering, the man lift most preferred for working in close proximity to electrocution hazards are electrically insulated man lifts. The electrically insulated man lifts offer protection to workers against accidental electrocution. These type of equipment are in compliance with the American National Standards Institute A92.2 Category C, 46kV Rated. These electrically insulated man lifts provide fiberglass insulated booms, fiber optic control cables and are operated on nonconductive hydraulic hoses that serve to reduce ground error.
Scissor lifts are a special type of aerial man lift which is meant to transport employees vertically to hard-to-reach places. The scissor lift derived its name due to the scissor type of design of the folding supports which serve to lower and raise the platform. To be able to hoist the lift, every one of the folding supports is opened so as to extend the platform to higher heights.
The scissor lift would either be powered manually or hydraulically. The hydraulic powered system does not rely on power, however allows the scissor lifts to descend with only a release of hydraulic pressure. Because the possibility of mechanical malfunctions preventing the platform from rapidly descending to the ground is eliminated, hydraulic systems make safer scissor lifts at the end of the day.
The man lift has a large range of weight capacities, with certain man lifts capable of holding many individuals, while some models can only hold a single person. Platform lifts and scissor lifts are more conducive for transporting many people, as boom lifts have less space located in their bucket.
