PRESS RELEASE: Rapid Platforms Expands Its Hoists Range


After recently investing over £1 million in 24 new powered access machines and two delivery vehicles, Rapid Platforms has followed this up by substantially expanding its hire range of goods and passenger hoists.

The Hertfordshire based company has taken delivery of 20 new hoists, ranging from Bumpa elevator hoists with payloads of 80kg through to Geda goods and passenger hoists with lifting capacities of up to 850kg.

Rapid Platforms Hoist and Transport Manager Paul Moss said: “This latest investment represents a substantial expansion of the range and type of hoists that we supply and is due to an increase in demand from all areas of the construction sector. The Geda hoists are particularly popular because they can be dismantled into small components for the smallest access restrictions and erected directly against a wall or a designed scaffold.”

Rapid Platforms provides an end to end service, from initial site survey through to hoist set up and removal, including provision of temporary power. The company also provides service and inspection for clients’ own Geda hoists.
