It’s not uncommon for workers to show up at a job site after a weekend and find bicycle tire tracks cresting mounds of dirt, equipment controls readjusted and small foot prints trekking around the job site.

Construction on a building interior

When performing construction jobs on a building interior, particular equipment can be used to improve workers’ efficiency and accelerate the time that it takes to complete tasks.

interiorPlumbing, electrical, mechanical / HVAC, and fire suppression system installers use scissor lifts to reach ceilings and perform their work. Scissor lifts offer several advantages over ladders and scaffolding:

  • Space: the aerial platform has room for tools and building materials and, typically, two people (or up to 500lbs).
  • Stability: The platform’s risers can support pipes, ducts and conduit, providing the operators extra lift leverage.
  • Convenient: Most scissor lifts have 110v plugs near the platform controls that can power electric tools.
  • Safe: The bottom-heavy scissor lifts and the heavy-gauge...
