What is an access platform?

Articulated Access Platform
What is an articulated lift platform?
An articulated access platform has been designed to work at height where horizontal outreach is required. Electric, diesel or bi-energy models are available.
How does an articulated boom lift work?
The boom on an articulated access platform is divided into multiple sections that bend, making them ideal for tight access and hard to reach areas.
What is a jib on an articulated lift?
The arm on an articulating boom lift is known as a jib. The additional articulation points on the jib provide greater range of motion for the aerial platform. Depending on the model, jib booms enable the platform to move up or down or from side to side, which is beneficial when working in confined areas.

What is the difference between a scissor lift and an articulated lift?
The platform of an articulated lift is supported by a jib. Scissor lifts feature a wider platform than an articulated lift which is supported by cross-brace supports. This is the main difference between a scissor lift and boom lift. It moves straight up and down, and thus it must be placed directly beneath the area you’re working on. However, the large platform is an important feature as it allows a whole team to reach the project at once. Typical uses for these lifts include exterior building repairs, cladding installation, window installation, and window cleaning.
