Raising the bar for scissor lift safety

sara LBS’ new range of scissor lift tables conform to the highest safety standards in a wide range of applications. Constructed from steel for strength, the lifts have a maximum load of up to 12 tonnes as standard and include a number of safety features including a ‘dead-man’ safety switch and safety trip edge.

The sara LBS scissor lift is suitable for a wide range of applications requiring load transfer between different levels. The lifts, which are all designed to exceed the BS EN 1570:1998 + A2 2009 safety requirements for lifting tables, can be easily custom designed by sara engineers to provide unique solutions for specific requirements.

One of the many features included is the safety trip edge; designed to detect any possible obstructions and stop the lift immediately during descent. Other features include a ‘dead-man’ fail safe which stops the lift in the event of the control button being released and the option of a smooth or non-skid platform top.

All scissor lifts are constructed using steel for the frames and scissor arms to maximise strength.
