Experienced & Professional

Lifts UK lift tables are highly engineered products, custom made in a purpose built factory that is dedicated to the design and manufacture of scissor lift tables. We manufacture to the highest standards expected by industry sectors such as aero-space, food, health, nuclear, off-shore, rail and auto-motive industry sectors. Lifts UK scissor lifting tables are mostly constructed to conform to European Standards, including the Machinery Directive and in particular BS EN 1570 ‘Code of Practice for the Safety requirements for lifting tables’. One of our company directors is a member of a National standards advisory panel that put together this code of practice.

Our lift tables can also be manufactured in various grades of stainless steel and galvanised carbon steel, or customer choice combinations to suit the environmental working conditions.

What are Scissor Lifts?

Scissor lifts are also known as platform lifts, lifting platforms, working platforms or simply, lift tables. These lift tables differ from MEWPs (Mobile Elevating Work Platforms) in that they generally lift large loads (up to 100 tonnes) through relatively short distances - typically up to 3 metres (more in special cases). Lifts UK have supplied lifts up to 17 metres long. MEWPs, on the other hand, tend to be designed to lift small loads - up to 500kgs or 2 or 3 men, through larger distances for access purposes.

Lift tables from Lifts UK are supplied with the EU CE mark as a Certificate of Conformity to the Machinery Directive or with the EU Declaration of Incorporation for clients who will be integrating one of our lift tables within a system or machine.

Having manufactured over 100,000 units since the 1970’s Lifts UK has an extensive range of standard and bespoke lift tables, most of which can be modified to meet customer specific needs.

Custom Scissor Lifts

Lifts UK offer their lift tables with a wide range of optional features to suit customer needs. Some of the more common extra requirements include smooth or slip resisting tear pattern deck plates, access hatches over power packs and cylinders, lifting eye bolts, auto-rising wheel / roll-off stops coming out of the platform, handrails, barriers and gates, goal posts, loading flaps, bridge plates and turn-tables. For safety purposes galvanised mesh curtains, pvc bellows guards and roller blinds can be fitted under lifts to restrict ingress to the under sides. Lifts can be fitted onto castors, wheels or pallet style base-frames for easier mobility.

Usually our lift tables are powered by electro-hydraulic power packs, 3 phase, single phase, 12 and 24 volts D.C.. In special circumstances some Lifts UK scissor lift tables can be actuated by air motors, air bags, push / rigid chain, trapezoidal thread, spindle or belt drives.
