Types of mobile platforms

Working with mobile platforms  

Escalators are increasingly being used for work at height. They are an indispensable part of construction sites and warehouse equipment. They are also increasingly seen on city streets. Their main task is to move people and materials to the workplace, vertically and horizontally. 

Division of mobile protests based on design features: 

Telescopic-articulated platform in storage 
  • mast (single or double mast), 
  • articulated, 
  • telescopic-articulated, 
  • scissors, 
  • hanging, 
  • loading boards (so-called loading boards), 
  • telescopic. 

Mobile mast platform 

It consists of a drive mechanism that is used to move the platform, a base (chassis), a mast (single or double mast) and a working platform. The mast is usually of truss construction and the most common lifting mechanism is a rack and pinion jack, which moves the platform along the mast. The chassis of the platform is in the form of a trolley, which allows it to be towed. 

Articulated mobile platform  

A distinctive feature of the articulated platform is an arm consisting of several movable points, which allows bending at multiple angles. This design increases accessibility and makes it possible to reach hard-to-reach places. 

Telescopic-articulated traffic platform 

It has a system of joints connected to a telescope, which allows access to hard-to-reach places, such as above various installations or shelving. The distinguishing feature of these machines is their remarkable manoeuvrability - the platform can rotate in any direction, regardless of whether the basket is lowered or raised. 

Mobile scissor lift

The main advantage is the large working platform and stability, provided by an evenly distributed differential. Typically, they have a higher lifting capacity, allowing a larger group of people to lift. The disadvantage, however, is that they have to be placed next to or under the work area, which, with some activities, can be dangerous. 

Hanging mobile platform 

It consists of a suspension cable winch, work platform and safety cables. The work platform is attached to the suspension cable using a hanger. There are three ways of attaching it: single-point, two-point and multi-point suspension. The platform can be installed temporarily, for the duration of the work, or permanently, such as for a construction site. 

Mobile loading platform 

Also referred to as cargo lifts or vehicle lifts. It is usually found in the form of a platform attached to the back of a truck or van. It is used to lift heavy loads for unloading. 

Telescopic mobile platform

This is a platform designed for working at very high heights. It makes it possible to work on high structures and buildings without having to move them to the right place, thanks to its special telescopic design. 

Questions and answers

What drive do mobile platforms have?

Escalators can be powered by an internal combustion engine, an electric motor or a hybrid. 

How many workers can lift the mobile platform?

Depending on the type, the mobile platform can lift between one and three people. 

What are mobile platforms?  

Escalators are a fixture on construction sites and warehouses, whose main task is to move people and materials vertically and horizontally to the workplace.
