Company has streamlined its policy of combining the great resources and high level talent from within their facilities or from the outside market in order to achieve better business performance.
Types of Aerial Lifts
Boom lift is a mounted carrier platform which can be attached to the hydraulic arms. Boom lift is also called “cherry picker” because its first purpose, it was used to pick cherries from the tree. It offers a working space in regularly inaccessible spaces and usually at height. There are primarily used for: painting, construction, electrical installations, piping installations, sand blasting, building maintenance, and any other application where workers and their tools need to get up in the air to perform their work. They come in various sizes, designs and mounting options. Usually, they are supported by motorized base giving them more flexibility. A bucket or platform is usually attached at the fore end of the hydraulic boom arms where a person can stand and work, while being effectively able to control the lateral and vertical movements of the bucket, with the help of adjustor mechanism for adjusting the position of hydraulic arms.
Genie currently offers Articulating Booms powered by electric engine or Bi-Energy engine and Telescopic Booms with dual fuel (Gas or LPG) engines.
Another kind of lift platform is Scissor Lift. A scissor lift is a type of platform that can usually only move vertically. The mechanism to achieve this is the use of linked, folding supports in a "X" pattern. The platform may also have an extension to allow closer access to the work area, because of the limits of vertical-only movement. The vertical movement is achieved by electrically unfolding a criss-cross support system also called a pantograph system. A spacious lateral platform is attached to the fore end of the criss-crossing arms affording larger work space and the unfolding or extension of scissor arms raise it to the required level. Downward movement of the scissor lift can be mechanical, hydraulic or even pneumatic. Like any other material handling machinery, scissor lifts are available in different sizes and capacities suiting the user’s requirements. Their lifting capacity goes from 1000lbs up to 2500lbs. Genie currently offers its GS series of scissor lifts.
