Static Base lifting platforms or Deck Riders from Niftylift have been developed to help compliance with Working at Height regulations in the steel erection industry. Their low weight design permits them to be used at an earlier stage by working off the prepared steelwork prior to laying the concrete slab.
Upper floor steel assembly can continue while the lower levels are freed for rebar work, casting and light traffic. By using Static Base Lifting Platforms, the reliance on waiting for the slab to achieve sufficient load-bearing strength is removed. Therefore, erection is faster and less complicated.
Lifting points allow the Deck Rider Static Base Lifting Platforms 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.
These Static Base Lifting Platforms have a 1.8 m wide cage which provides plenty of space for materials and tools. The 150° fly-boom with 100° cage rotation helps increase accuracy when positioning the unit.
