A chair lift platform from Safetech was installed at the Sydney Public Hall as an ergonomic solution to the repetitive lifting and lowering of chairs and tables from under stage storage to the floor level of the theatre.
A key problem was the need to manually lift every chair and table before pushing them out through the low profile doors onto the floor of the hall. The constant bending and stretching caused fatigue and strain injuries among the helpers, which led to a shortage of volunteers for the task.
Safetech’s AS1-1200W hydraulic lift table with a 2,300mm x 1,700mm platform was installed as a solution.
Safetech included 500mm high lift out gates on one end and the rear side in addition to swing gates at the other end to retain the chairs and tables that were slid on from the floor of the hall.
Key benefits of Safetech’s hydraulic lift table with platform:
- Easy loading/unloading of chairs/tables to the under stage storage area
- Heavy chairs are raised/ lowered with the press of a button
- Reduction in fatigue and strain injuries among volunteers
- 240 volt operation (415 volt available for higher duty cycle)
