  • Tony Guarino6 Features that Elevate Vertical Rise Stairs Above Other Platform Systems

    The age old problem of having to use a large array of access platforms when servicing a variety of machinery (and then having to store them in between jobs) is solved with vertical rise stairs (better known at Levitt-Safety as VRS).

    We recently brought our Monkey to a tradeshow — the VRS Monkey, that is! What stood out most to people who watched the demonstration was the versatility that all these features offered. You could see the light bulbs going off as people started to picture how this work platform would solve their hard-to-reach places at work.

    These multi-use, adjustable safety work platforms are designed to increase safety and productivity in your workplace, and come with a ton of exciting features that we love. Today we’re going to take a look at our top six favourite features on the VRS Giraffe model.

    1. Adjustable height

    The VRS can be easily adjusted to the right height for any jobMove it up and down with the touch of a lever, or by using hydraulics (available in the Giraffe model only).

    2. Lockable Gates

    The VRS Giraffe features not one, not two, but three lockable gates. These allow you to easily access your job. This increases productivity and safety!

    3. Wide Platforms

    The 1.6 meter platform on the VRS Giraffe makes it easy to reach over obstacles or access hard-to-reach areas.

    4. Minimal Floor Footprint

    Storage space is at a premium in just about any facility you enter. The VRS Giraffe takes up the same amount of space no matter what height the platform is raised to. Instead of buying multiple ladders and platforms, you can save money by having all of your working-at-heights needs covered with a VRS.

    5. Easy to Move

    The VRS Giraffe features forklift pockets under the chassis so that you can easily load, unload and transport it anywhere you need.

    6. No Slips or Trips

    Since the base tread remains at a constant height from the floor surface, trip concerns are eliminated, which also reduces the risk of falling.

    So there you have it! Six great reasons to give the VRS Giraffe (or its counterparts!) a try. You’ll be able to replace multiple fixed-height platforms with one versatile, high-quality, multi-use unit. The result? A truly versatile workstation.
