UK based sales and rental company Aerial and Handling Services of Smalldole has launched its new DRXmulti materials handling attachment for scissor lifts.
The DRXmulti can be installed on every make and model of scissor lift, including low level access platforms such as Pop-Ups or Power Towers. Weighting just 14kgs, the fully CE approved device can be positioned in under five minutes and removed in less than a minute. It requires no drilling and can be singularly, dual or triple mounted if required. Once installed it can also be quickly reconfigured as pipe/rebar rack or a board carrier by simply swapping the jaws for clamps and adding board cups.
Ian Harding, director of Aerial and Handling Services, said: “Naturally we’re hoping this will be a very successful product, having taken us almost a year and a large investment to design and finish it ready for commercial sale. Everyone at AHS has been involved with the project, whether it was hands on design or a group collective when troubleshooting, and together we have all been responsible for the final product - it’s been much more than just blood sweat and tears!”
Bam Ferrovial Kier (BFK) has taken delivery of the first two devices which have been fitted on two Genie GS2646 scissor lifts. They will be used to support concrete reinforcing bars and provide a safer more efficient method of positioning the rebar during the building of a curtain wall at London’s Farringdon Station. BFK is a joint venture beteeen BAM Nuttall, Ferrovial Agroman and Kier Construction. Recently it has been awarded three Crossrail projects valued at more than £700 million.
