Optimum Handling Solutions have recently supplied a double scissor lift for a building project in the Sydney CBD that has eliminated the problem of bulk food deliveries to a retail outlet situated on the second level of a commercial building. Previously, all goods had to be individually carried upstairs to the storeroom, with heavy cartons, bags and drums all adding to risk of injuries.
The Optimum Handling Solutions double scissor lifts are located in a shallow pit, allowing for goods to be wheeled onto it with a pallet truck or a hand trolley. Simple operation controls on the double scissor lifts elevate them to the second floor where they can again be unloaded safely with trolleys. Safety gates at top and bottom of the double scissor lifts are interlocked to the table controls to prevent unsafe entry to the scissor lift travel path. The double scissor lift control buttons are fitted with a key lock to prevent unauthorised use.
