Bespoke Mini Lift Tables

Standard Lift Tables - click here for more info

Standard features for scissor lift tables.

Safety Trip Bars

The most effective method of guarding against trapping as the platform is lowered. As soon as the all-round aluminium perimeter bars come into contact with any obstacle, the scissor table will instantly cease to lower, and it cannot be lowered agin until the raise button is activated. Aluminium is used to prevent this very important safety device from corrosion. With the sensor switches located beneath the platform perimeter, they are not susceptible to accidental damage, yet provide a fully adjustable touch sensitive cut-out system.


For additional safety, the design ensures that there are no trapping points between moving parts, minimising the risk of trapped fingers.

Hose Burst Valves

Built into every hydraulic cylinder to stop any sudden platform drop in the highly unlikely event of a hose burst, these valves can be relied upon to let the platform lower at a very slow constant speed, eliminating the risk of injury. All hoses are either steel armoured or manufactured in thick wall aluminium tube.

Mechanical Locks

Two steel mechanical locks are fitted, one to each set of scissors to allow for completely safe maintenance work when the table is in the raised position. Even with the hydraulic system disconnected the mechanical locks are capable of supporting not only the scissor lift platform but also the maximum elevating capacity of the lift.

Safety Signs

Operator safety is paramount. Warning signs and decals are placed in prominent positions, are easy to read and understand. All signs are weatherproof and fade resistant.

Power Pack

An integral (low profile models have a remote power pack with moulded, protective case), 3 phase, 380-500 volt, 50 Hz power pack is supplied as standard. Single phase 240 volt, single phase 110 volt, pneumatic and manual pump hydraulics are available as options. These very reliable units include automatic pressure relief valve, overload protection, variable lowering speed control, electric solenoid lowering valve and fused electrical system housed fully within prootective IP54 case.


A hand held or wall-mounted ergonomically-designed shock resistant remote control is supplied with a simple three button up/down constant pressure, and twist to release mushroom type emergency stop. 24 volt DC control circuit is standard on each table, being far safer than higher control voltages. A lockable storage holster is included for easy wall mounting.

Test Certification

Prior to leaving the factory the lift tables undergo a complete pre-delivery inspection procedure and testing which is carried out by quality control engineers. This includes load testing to +30% of the overall capacity and testing of all components e.g. printed circuit boards, transformers, valves, hoses, links, bearings, running wheels, drive systems, safety switches, controls and ancillaries. All the tables comply with and, in some cases, exceed the requirements of B.S. 5323/1980. All test certification is checked and signed by a company Director.
