The safe design, efficiency and easy operation of mobile platforms make them widely used in industry, especially in the logistics, construction and maintenance sectors.

Applications for mobile platforms

Mobile platforms belong to the group of handling equipment whose most important function is to move workers and tools horizontally and vertically by means of a platform or gondola. They are used mainly in construction works, finishing works, all kinds of installations. They can be found in the advertising industry, in works related to cleaning or decorating surfaces at heights.
