It has added 1,000 pusharound Pecolifts to its hire fleet. Users simply step onto the platform, turn the handle and lift themselves up to 3.5m height in 11 seconds.
With a working footprint of less than one metre squared and a weight of less than 180kg, the Pecolift offers an alternative to the step-ladder.
“Our major investment in this product represents our belief that the Pecolift can truly transform working at height for many of our customers. Not only does the product present an incredibly cost effective, safe and convenient method of working, the number of applications it can aid is also incredibly impressive” said Nationwide sales director Richard Miller.
“This revolutionary low-level access platform is a highly-efficient and safety-conscious alternative to traditional means of access such as podium steps, ladders, and step ladders, which combined are thought to contribute to around a third of reported fall-from-height incidents every year. Comparatively the Pecolift is also incredibly competitive in terms of costs and environmental credentials. It’s our aim to share these benefits with our customers across the UK.”
