The UK's Number One Scissor Lift Table Supplier

Case Study - Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW)

Published on: Thursday 21st November 2019

The project

Unibail-Rodamco-Westfield (URW) is a premier global developer and operator of flagship shopping destinations. The demand to manage and move plant equipment such as Skyjack People Lifters and mobile electric scissor lifts has increased significantly since the original design, and the team needed to install lifts with greater lifting capacities. URM once again turned to Scissor Tables UK to supply service yard platform lifts as they had worked with them before, when they supplied the oversize lift in the mall. They were also confident that Scissor Tables UK pricing was the best on the market.
*we also relocated an existing static scissor lift to another service yard

The results

STUK designed and fitted a service yard platform lift customized to URW’s requirements.

We installed two fully customised scissor lifts also known as dock levellers with entry to both ends to allow operators to drive the Skyjacks on to the platform and raise them up to a height of 1200mm. Both lifting platforms were fitted with safety bellow skirts to prevent access to the scissor mechanism and ramps for loading.
*we will be carrying out future servicing with our servicing package
