What is a material lift?

Material lifts are a simple, one-operator lift that can allow the lifting, positioning and installation of heavy objects. Typically, lifts operate at 3m, 4.5m and 6m. Their benefits are that they can fit through doorways and are very lightweight, yet strong and robust. When not in use, the can have the arms dismantled for easy storage or loading into a van. Operable both indoors and out, there is no engine, as either a CO2 cartridge or air compressor does the lifting via the winch system. Material lifts are an excellent solution for guaranteeing workplace health and safety in workplaces where employees have to lift heavy loads. This is because they prevent the risk of back injuries. They are also very versatile, given that they can be adjusted to lift a wide variety of loads of differing weights, shapes and sizes. Material lifts are perfect for lifting, positioning and installing materials without injuring your workforce. They increase efficiency, safety and productivity.
