Niftylift static base lift platforms (DeckRiders) have been developed specifically to help compliance with ‘Working at Height’ regulations in the steel erection industry. Low weight design allows Niftylift static base lift platforms to be used at an earlier stage of build by working off the prepared steelwork prior to laying the concrete slab. Upper floor steel assembly can then continue whilst lower levels are freed for rebar work, casting and light traffic. The reliance on waiting for the slab to achieve sufficient load-bearing strength is removed by Niftylift static base lift platforms, making steel erection swifter and more efficient.
Lifting points allow the DeckRider to be craned into position quickly and easily and the base frame ‘sled’ has a variable width facility to cater for differing pitches of profiled steelwork.
A 5ft 11in wide cage provides more room for materials and tools and a 150° jib-boom with 100° cage rotation, helps to increase accuracy when positioning.
