Nationwide Platforms is expanding its fleet with the addition of 1000 Pecolifts in 2013.

The Pecolift, manufactured by UK company Power Towers Ltd, is a battery and fuel-free access platform which converts 10% human energy input into 100% of the energy required to reach working heights of 3.5 m in 11 seconds. To use, operators step into the platform and turn the handle mechanism to elevate to the required height.

“Our major investment in this product represents our belief that the Pecolift can truly transform working at height for many of our customers", said Richard Miller, Nationwide Platforms’ executive director – sales.

"Not only does the product present an incredibly cost effective, safe and convenient method of working, the number of applications it can aid is also incredibly impressive”.

Nationwide Platforms has already received a number of Pecolift units and has them deployed on some of the UK’s largest projects, including the St Barts redevelopment and Heathrow T2B.

Nationwide Platforms’ Pecolift purchase is part of a larger investment plan for 2013 which, like last year’s 14% fleet replacement programme, will see it replenish a significant proportion of its fleet, while investing in a selection of new products.

With a working footprint of less than one metre squared and a weight of less than 180 kg, the Pecolift provides a working at height solution that is suitable for a number of environments, including confined spaces.
