Contractors carrying out electrical fit out work in a new distribution centre in Southampton have hired scissor lifts and a boom lift from Hampshire Plant & Access (HPA).
D H Contracting Associates Ltd have hired four scissor lifts – three Genie and one Holland Lift – with working heights from 11.75m to 18.50m. The boom lift is a Genie Z45/25J with a working height of 15.87m. It is fitted with the SanctuaryZone secondary guarding device, which protects the operator from being crushed by overhead obstructions.
The machines are on site at a new 100,660 sq ft distribution centre within Mountpark Southampton.
Darren Heathfield, D H Contracting Associates Managing Director, said: “HPA worked with us to specify the most suitable machines for our contract so that we could access high level areas and also get to areas where space was restricted. All the machines have non-marking tyres to avoid damaging the centre’s floor.”
“We are very pleased with the performance of all of the machines, particularly the Genie Z45/25J boom lift which is very versatile and ideal for installing electrical cabling in awkward areas such as corners,” he added.
