Push Around Verticals (PAVs)
What is a push around vertical?
A push around vertical is a compact and easy to operate access platform that can be manually ‘pushed’ into place by the operator, before being lifted up to reach the area of height.
Benefits of push around verticals:
- Push around verticals are compact, lightweight and easy to use
- They can be set up by one person and raised to height quickly
- They are safer than traditional scaffolding and work towers
- They come with standard non-marking tyres and are battery powered meaning they are clean for indoor use
What applications are push around verticals useful for?
- Due to their small size and light weight, push around verticals are perfect for working on floors that are unable to support heavy loads, such sports hall flooring.
- Applications with sensitive flooring as the non-marking tyres can be used with no marking or scuffing
- Inside domestic or industrial premises, to be used to reach ceiling heights
What training do I need to use a push around vertical?
