Aerial work platform ideal for glass installation


Access Platform Sales (APS), a supplier of aerial work platforms and lifting equipment, is bringing a unique glass and materials lift to the UK market.

The Wienold Lifte is a counterbalance lift which allows for operation flush to walls, making it ideal for glass installation. Highly compact and manoeuvrable, the Wienold Lifte is designed to improve productivity and efficiency for glaziers and in a wide range of other material lifting applications.

German manufacturer Norbert Wienold GmbH created the products by modifying and enhancing the well-known Genie Super lift, so the Wienold machines are fully compatible with Genie attachments. Wienold has replaced the forward-facing stabilisers on the Genie Super with a counterbalance system, allowing for much closer positioning against walls. 

Lee Louder, sales director of Access Platform Sales, said: “Wienold Lifte represents a step change in manually operated materials lifts. This is a class-leading product that can deliver real time-saving and efficiency benefits for the glass installation industry and others working in confined spaces.”

APS is already an official Genie dealer for the Super lift range, providing expert technical support and holding an extensive range of spare parts compatible with the Wienold Lifte machines.

The Wienold Lifte product line consists of two manually operated material lifts specially designed for glass handling in the construction and industrial glazing markets. The Wienold Lift Universal (WLU) uses one chassis and four outrigger sets to create four different models. Lifting heights of 3.5m, 5m and 6.5m are available, all with a 250kg lift capacity.
