access into small spaces such as through suspended ceiling panels. The product offers a 5.3m working height.


AHS (www.aerialandhandlingservices.com) also showed a narrow 14m working height platform, the X14EN, which is only 890mm wide. The company’s owner, Ian Harding, said that the machine’s compact footprint makes it ideal for work in supermarkets and warehouses, and enables users to utilise narrower aisles for maximum storage space.


JCB (www.jcb.com) showed models from its range of electric scissor lifts, including the 19ft S1930E which has a load capacity of 230kg and weighs 1,526kg. Power comes from four 6V batteries and hydraulic drive is incorporated.


New from EuroGate International (www.eurogate- international.com/en) is a range of securable covers designed to protect powered access machines from the elements during transportation and storage. Called AerialJackets and made by TireSocks Inc of the US, they are designed to fit specific models from a number of popular brands. They are designed to enable easy access to controls and charging points without removing the cover and a retractable lock is incorporated.


Protection of a different sort was displayed strikingly by Ground- Guards (www.ground-guards.co.uk). The company used some of its new XtremeMats to create an archway entrance to its stand. The 4m by 2m ground protection panels have a tough high-density polyethylene plastic outer layer encapsulating a hard foam inner core, and this is said to make them lightweight and buoyant for use on boggy ground.


They are designed to create access roads for heavy plant and are claimed to considerably outlast timber bogmats. Overlapping flange joints are incorporated to give full support on soft ground, and the connecting bolts are designed to facilitate alignment on undulating terrain. Modular bund wall sections can also be fitted.


Ground-Guards’ new XtremeMats made an eye-catching display.


New from Safety Lifting Gear (www.safetyliftingear.com) is a lightweight folding gantry that can be used in emergency situations to raise injured personnel, or for the efficient handling of heavy items such as masonry. The product comes in three sections to allow it to be carried easily to where it needs to be used. MD Mike Hughes sees it as a useful product for site managers to have available as part of their Health & Safety plans. He also told EHN that the company plans to open a new depot in Glasgow in September, complementing its other locations in Bridgwater, Bristol, Crayford, Cardiff, Hayes, Leeds, and Southampton.
