GK Hire targets clean rooms with 21 new Genie GS-1330m scissors
Based in Dublin, Ireland, rental firm GK Hire, has taken delivery of 21Genie GS-1330m scissor lift platforms. Featuring a power-efficient e-drive system for full-day, emissions-free runtime and weighing less than the standard service elevator capacity limitation of 1000kg (2205lb),the Genie GS-1330m scissor lift combines a maximum working height of 5.9m (18ft 8in), a lift capacity of 227kg (500lb) to take two people on the platform and a machine weight of just 885kg (1950lb).
A suitable low-level access solution for low floor load and space and weight-restricted jobsites, key applications for the GS-1300m include indoor construction and facilities maintenance tasks in hotels, supermarkets, theatres, gymnasiums, malls, high-rise and retail spaces.
Jerome Cunnane, managing director of GK Hire said, “The Genie GS-1330m meets all the specifications needed in clean room settings. In our region, pharmaceutical plants and data centres are the real target area for these units where we see great potential. For us, the e-drive feature is as a huge plus for clean room work where customers do not want to contend with contaminating and soiling surfaces due to hydraulic leaks.”
He continues, “Feedback from customers has been great concerning the folding platform that makes the unit easy to transport in very tight areas, including lifts. Weighing only 885kg [1950lb], it’s just right for work on mezzanine floors making it quite a revelation among professionals for office fit outs.”
The Genie GS-1330m scissor lift measures 1.4m (4ft 7in) long and 0.78m (30ft 5in) wide and is drive-enabled at full height and in stowed position. Because of its e-drive technology, the Genie GS-1330m scissor lift delivers more traction power than previous solutions. Faster and more responsive to work with, this system provides full workday shift operation, the ability to handle up to 25% graded slopes (14 degrees) and climb ramps easily for rapid transport between rentals even when battery charge is low. Unlike other products equipped with casters, this unit also comes with solid, non-marking 25cm (10in) tyres to offer a ground clearance of 6cm (2.4in) and high-precision drive manoeuvrability adapted to sensitive surfaces.
