The advantages of elevating man lifts, electric scissor lifts, or any of the many names they are called is that they are very stable (if used correctly) and are designed for single-person operation. With these lifts to afford access where a ladder access is not suitable — or indeed, safe — jobs at height can be completed in no time. Ideal for work in virtually any industrial or commercial situation or work area, they have certainly proved their worth time and again since they first hit the scene some fifty years ago.
While there is very little reference to when scissor lifts were first used, it appears to be in the 1960s. Expensive and cumbersome, they took time to catch on. But, as with any invention that has practical, useful, and cost-saving features and benefits, they gradually became more of a common sight. Certainly in the 1980s, there seemed to be a boom (no pun intended) in the use of scissor lifts in the construction industry.
As more and more elaborate designs and construction processes came into being, the need for innovative access solutions followed; time has gone by, and demand has been leading innovation. Taking a look around now at the many elaborate industrial man lifts available for the industrial and commercial sector, it’s clear to see that these highly maneuverable, compact, and cost-effective access solutions are here to stay for a very long time (at least until anti-gravity technology is released by the secret government!).
