What was it created for? 

The existing OEM provided platform was out of compliance with OSHA 29 CFR Part 1926.1431 Hoisting Personnel standards. Therefore a new, fully compliant lifting platform was required for performing routine maintenance and outage maintenance on a gas-powered combustor in a power generation plant.

What can this platform do for your company? 

Similar customized platforms can be utilized in the energy and energy gas-powered generation sector to replace non-compliant lifting platforms. Lifting Technologies manufactures custom platforms for all industrial applications.

Is this platform safe? 

This custom ERM1-300SO/26 is built to OSHA 29 CFR Part 1926.1431 Hoisting Personnel standards, as are all LT’s personnel hoisting platforms.

With properly designed and built specifications such as side enclosure, inner grab rail, fall protection anchorage, and detachable test weight system, the plant management and maintenance team are assured of a fully compliant and safe working environment.  

Lifting Technologies welding team is AWS certified and employs AWS D1.1 and AWS D14.1 weld specifications.

LT’s engineering division designed and calculated the platform to full compliance, and the design was reviewed and stamped by an independent engineering firm for additional safety and quality of design.

Why is this product popular within the business? 

This material lifting platform is popular because of its unique features: 

  • Lifting Technologies is the original manufacturer of OSHA compliant personnel hoisting platforms, and leverages this knowledge in the design and manufacturing of every platform.
  • This platform exhibits Lifting Technologies’ exceptional craftsmanship.
  • LT is capable of handling complex designs and builds such as this custom shaped platform.
  • Our industry leading 3-year warranty and highly efficient test weight system combine to increase LT’s focus on safety.  

Is this product custom-made? 

Due to the size and shape of the hatch this platform must access, the perimeter is precisely customized to allow for maximum interior space while fitting into the combustor hatch. 

In addition, the compact nature of the platform required a custom approach to the inner handrail, again to allow for maximum interior space for the person being hoisted. 

The custom offset single pick was chosen to assist with compact design,  calculated for balance, and designed within the overall height limitations. The lifting post provides an optimal anchoring point for safe and secure fall protection.
