Brisbane Powerhouse is a contemporary multi-arts, dining and conference venue including theatre, music, comedy, film, visual arts and festivals.
Brisbane Powerhouse provides services such as loading and unloading of large sets (props) including sound equipment from semi trailers.
The current operation was grounds for possible damage to goods and property and also the risk of harming operators and those assisting.
Brisbane Powerhouse chose Safetech ’s ASD2-1600 double scissor lift table.
The idea of this scissor lift table being installed was to increase safety to operators which has now proven to be the strong benefit. The size of the scissor lift will accommodate all of their needs from truck height to load size. The size of the platform has allowed them to unload more equipment at a time, increasing efficiency.
They considered altering the loading bay by cutting out the existing concrete and installing a dock leveller but this would not have serviced the ground level as well and would have cost two thirds the price of the scissor lift. This alternative would have also caused down time of around three weeks.
