What are the different types of access platforms?

There are a number of different access platforms types, designed to reach different areas and allow workers to complete various tasks. Scaffolding is the type people are most familiar with, along with a host of other folding platform systems that work in a similar way to a ladder.

However, these forms only reach so high - and larger or more complex projects will require the help of powered platforms. These access platforms types include scissor lifts, articulated boom lifts and boom lifts (otherwise known as cherry pickers). 

JCB's powered access platforms are built on 70 years of innovation and expertise, and designed to reach new levels of reliability, serviceability, and safety. Take a look at the range of electric scissors and articulated booms here.
