Hewden moves into the low end of access

Responding to a gap in the market for a safe alternative to ladders and trestles for standard maintenance work, Hewden Hire Centres have introduced the ‘Sigmadeck 250’, a low-level mobile access platform.

The platform is suitable for working at heights up to 3.6m and offers a guard rail and safe working area. It is narrow enough, at .74m, to be manoeuvred from room to room whilst still assembled. Assembly takes a few seconds, so the advantages of using a ladder are fully matched, whilst safety is far superior.

The Sigmadeck 250 has been designed and manufactured by Turner Access and is available throughout Hewden’s hire depots, with sixty units in the North West of England. Peter Bennett of Turner Access expressed his hope that Hewden would capitalise on this new ‘outstanding hire and sales potential.’
