Eazi Sales and Service, a supplier of world renowned access equipment brands to the Southern Africa market, such as JLG, Magni and Maeda, recently introduced Power Towers range of low-level access equipment to the local market.
The introduction came about as a result of parent company, JLG Industries acquiring a 100% shareholding of the UK based company Power Towers. The company has been very successful in expanding the market for low level access in the UK, the Middle East, and parts of Europe and JLG will give it the opportunity to expand its footprint further.
The success that Eazi Sales and Service have achieved with the JLG brand in the local market will be further enhanced with the introduction of Power Towers that fills a gap in its portfolio in the low access area. Founded in 2007, Power Towers specializes in the engineering and manufacturing of low level access products which comprises a range of seven mast-based models; the self-propelled SP range, the push around Power Tower and Nano, and the latest non-powered Eco range, Pecolift and, Ecolift, that are rated for indoor and in some cases, outdoor use.
Low level access describes an entirely new specialist sector within the access industry. The term is generally used to denote operating environments up to 4.5m to 5m working height, internally and on flat level surfaces, using manual or powered access equipment. The applications could be determined by using base ‘A’ frame step ladders or a self-propelled power access platform.
The introduction of the Power Towers low level access platform range by Eazi Sales and Service will no doubt provide a quick, cost effective and safer alternative to using aluminium towers, ladders and steps. Able to be positioned ‘at the job’ within minutes, the product range offers unparalleled efficiency and productivity in a multi-storey environment, for finishing trades such as electrical contracting, dry lining and ceiling slabs up to 5m.
The cost-effectiveness, productivity and safety inherent in the powered and non-powered range, combined with the manoeuvrability and ease of operation, could never be achieved with a scaffold tower or podium, considering that the achievable work rate can be up to eight times faster using the Power Towers.
In the Eco Range of products for example, the Pecolift and Ecolift represent a high level of product innovation. Using no battery power or hydraulic oil thanks to a patented arrangement of belts and gears, the Pecolift is able to lift an operator to a working height of 3.5m in under eleven seconds. Its bigger brother, the 4.2m Ecolift does the same thing in only fifteen seconds. The platform elevation is virtually effortless. The simple, yet practical design of the equipment means that it can run 24/7 without maintenance.
The Power Towers range of access equipment is simple, safe and efficient to use. It reduces working hours when compared with mechanical and manual alternatives.
