In the run up to Christmas, Heathrow Airport uploaded this lovely time-lapse video, which shows the step by step process of their Christmas vision coming to life! From hanging orbs to giant Christmas trees, this video reveals how the team behind these beautiful decorations put everything together, to create a wonderful  display for the holiday season.

Having watched the video, you will have noticed that this scale of Christmas decorating requires a lot more than your standard step ladder to put a plan into action! A large scale operation such as this requires a whole host of equipment to achieve the desired result, and we are proud to say that the lifting gear in this video was in fact, provided by our West London depot!

From the LoadSurfer material lift to pallet trucks and safety harnesses, SafetyLiftinGear supplied a range of items for the project, in order to help the team at Heathrow put their display together safely. It's great to be able to put our name to such an incredible project, and we are also very pleased to be able to share a more light-hearted safety gear story with you!

Scissor lifts tables are specialised aerial lifts designed to lift large pallets and loads and are commonly integrated into production, construction lines to accommodate change in levels or to provide a table that is at comfortable height for the worker. 
 
When purchasing a scissor lift table you need to consider the height that you need to reach and the weight of the load it needs to support. Here at SafetyLiftinGear our mobile scissor platform tables all have a different working load limit, from 150kg to 1000kg and a lift height ranging from 720mm to 1500mm.  
 
At SafetyLiftinGear we only stock hydraulic mobile scissor lifts because they provide the most economical, dependable, and versatile method of lifting. Our hydraulic scissor lifts have few moving parts, so there are fewer parts that will need servicing and less parts that could breakdown causing downtime so you will get many trouble free years with our platform tables. However, in the unlikely event that you do have an issue we offer a 12 months warranty on our entire range of platform tables. 
 
These scissor lift tables rise loads smoothly and are operated by a foot pedal located at the bottom, they also feature a fold flat handle so these scissor lifts are easy to store and transport from warehouse to warehouse. Finally, all the wheels are made from polyurethane making them hard wearing, oil and solvent resistant, and resistant to extreme temperatures making our scissor lift platforms the perfect addition to workshops, garages and warehouses.
