Scissor lifts for inner-city goods delivery

Optimum Handling Solutions
Wednesday, 10 March, 2010

Optimum Handling Solutions has recently supplied a double scissor lift for a building project in the Sydney CBD that has eliminated the problem of bulk food deliveries to a retail outlet situated on the second level of a commercial building.

Previously, all goods had to be individually carried upstairs to the storeroom, with heavy cartons, bags and drums all adding to the risk of injuries.

The scissor lift is located in a shallow pit, allowing for goods to be wheeled onto it with a pallet truck or a hand trolley. Simple operation controls elevate the scissor lift to the second floor where it can again be unloaded safely with trolleys.

Safety gates at the top and bottom are interlocked to the table controls to prevent unsafe entry to the scissor lift travel path. The scissor lift control buttons are fitted with a key lock to prevent unauthorised use.
