NatHire’s range of low level equipment hire has been developed and introduced since the introduction of recent legilsation including the ‘Working at Heigh Regulations 2005′. Our low level equipment generally includes machines capable of working at heights of up to 5 meters, on a flat solid surface such as slabs or tarmac and be used internally.
No More Ladders and Step Ladders
Traditionally this type of access would have been conducted using ladders or step ladders. Low level access equipment has been developed due to the large volume of accidents that occurred during the use and application of ladders and step ladders. Access equipment such as Peco units and Powered Towers – are a much safer, more productive method of working.
Low level access equipment is generally split into two groups – both of which are available to hire from NatHire. Push Around Platforms and Self-Propelled Platforms.
Low Level Equipment can be used in a variety of environments including large, medium and small construction projects. Shopfitting and retail shop fit outs – dry lining, glazing and internal cladding. For non construction projects – low level access equipment hire can be useful for a variety of environments including hospitals for cleaning and maintenance, retail for stock picking, stock takes, etc. Alternatively powered towers and peco units can be extremely useful in airports and other transport environments.
