RAPIDFOLD system enables quick and easy folding and raising of platform rails on SJ3219 scissor lift for passing through standards doorways
Powered access major Skyjack has fitted its SJ3219 ANSI model with a standard new system that allows the top of the platform rails to quickly fold down and enable access through standard doors and other areas with restricted space.
According to Skyjack, with the ANSI 92.20 stipulations requiring additional rail height, the SJ3219 would no longer fit through a standard 80’’ door or entryway, but the addition of the RAPIDFOLD feature restores the ability to fit through doors with ease.
The RAPIDFOLD feature incorporates a quick release mechanism that takes only seconds to fold the rails to under 80”. Once through the door, the rails can be raised back to the required rail height, says Skyjack. The system features simple and easy components that a single operator can use, with no need for tools, while the entire process takes a matter of seconds allowing uninterrupted work, the manufacturer added
Kris Schmidt, product manager at Skyjack, explained: “RAPIDFOLD is both quick and easy to use, but more importantly, it means that we have not had to employ expensive systems that would have impacted customers at a price level and led to compromises in other performance areas.
“I am happy to say that this means the Skyjack SJ3219 model is the lightest scissor lift on the market that’s wind rated to full height for one person, still maintains a two person no-wind rating, and is capable of going through a standard door.”
Skyjack added that RAPIDFOLD joins a host of new features on its new SJ3219, including a new SKYCODED™ control system for on-board diagnostics and simplified troubleshooting; new single location, single step, valve actuation emergency lowering; newly redesigned pothole protection system; new CAN bus capable smart charger; new impact resistant control box with integrated shroud; and the new ECOTRAY leak containment option.
