Work-Catch Platforms from LPI Lift Systems Offer Safe Adjustable Fall Protection
Press release date: June 23, 2006
Eau Claire, Wis. - The LPI Lift Systems line of Work-Catch Platforms is designed to provide safe, adjustable fall protection in manufacturing, maintenance and materials handling applications. The stable platform can be easily adjusted in length and height to facilitate your specific work needs. It is large enough to accommodate both workers and materials, helping to minimize excessive movement associated with manual lifting in a working environment and reducing the need for workers to retrieve needed supplies.
The Work-Catch Platform is 36" wide and 10' long in its retracted position. When fully extended, the platform ends can add an additional 78" to the overall length of the platform bringing its entire length to 16'-6". The collapsed platform height of 53" can be adjusted to a maximum raised position of 129" allowing a worker to comfortably work on products up to 16' in height. Platform weight capacity is 1,500 lbs. with a maximum of 300 lbs. weight capacity on the rollout sections.
The LPI Work-Catch Platform system utilizes a standard shop compressed air source (requires 50 SCFM at 90 psi) to operate the air/hydraulic power unit, while standard platform controls allow the operator to move the platform up, down or make emergency stops. The control panel also contains an auxiliary air supply connection that can be used for easy operation of worker tools while on the platform.
Added safety features of the LPI Work-Catch Platform include four steel swivel casters, with swivel locks and wheel brakes for maximum stability. A self-closing gate and 43"- high guardrails provide for safer containment when worker occupied.
