Use of environmentally friendly working at height access

The Peco lift has been used on our refurbishment project of the Chemistry Building at the University of Manchester.

The use of the access equipment was introduced to address the unknown nature of the floors we were working on.

We needed access that was flexible to the work area and as light weight as possible.

Alloy towers were not really a great option due to the way they are standardised in how they require erecting, so we looked for lightweight MEWPS.

The Peco lift does not require a battery due to it being a wound up option and so lighter, and also allows for us to access a number of different heights quickly and safely.

As a result of this search and the fact it does not need a battery or hydraulic oils, it also made it an eco friendly option.

The batteries do not need resource hungry charging, which reduces the use of electric, and also reduces the risk of fire when charging over night.

The fact hydraulic oils are not used reduces the chances of oil spills, which reduces spill risk and the potential damage to the environment and finished areas.
