VISTEM, a provider of game-changing technology to the oil and gas industry, has launched an innovative mobile access platform for the offshore sector that is set to bring significant cost, time and safety benefits to clients.
The ATEX approved access lift, which reaches a height of 3.5m, is battery and motor free. Powered by a pre-loaded gas spring and gear system, the turning of the simple dead man handle raises and lowers the platform.
The lift offers an alternative to traditional podiums and stepladders, which present risks associated with working at height. Personnel are fully enclosed in the lift prior and during the elevation, which drastically reduces the risk of fall.
The lift is very compact with a footprint of only 850mm (w) by 985mm (l) and can be raised in 11 seconds and lowered in 11 seconds.
