Jones Environmental Laboratory Choose Penny Hydraulics Goods Lift
Jones Environmental are a Flintshire based analysis company whose capability ranges from simple contaminated land analysis to complex forensic analysis, all supported by good technical back-up and experienced customer service staff.
Mr Howard Jones, a representative from Jones Environmental contacted the Penny Hydraulics Goods Lift division as they were having a new mezzanine floor installed in their Flintshire facility to enable them to make better use of their warehousing space. The mezzanine floor was to be used for storage purposes, therefore to fulfil their duty of care to employees they were interested in installing a mezzanine floor goods lift system to avoid any unnecessary manual handling of goods up and down the stairs between ground and mezzanine floor levels.
Penny Hydraulics Area Sales Manager, Martin Oke visited the site for a free of charge, no obligation survey and specified a 500kg working capacity MezzLift, mezzanine floor goods lift from the Penny Hydraulics Goods Lift range.
The mezzanine floor goods lift was specified with a 1500mm by 1000mm platform suitable for lifting and lowering pallets, lab samples and trolleys between the ground level and mezzanine floor. Further features of the lift included 2200mm high double gates, dual push button control, a loading ramp to allow easy rolling of trolleys on and off the platform and a mesh guard frame and electrical interlock system for safety.
The lift was manufactured within a 4 week lead time at Penny Hydraulics premises in Chesterfield and the lift was installed by Penny Hydraulics specialist Goods Lifts engineers in August 2014.
Penny Hydraulics Limited is a quality assured company and the leading manufacturer of small, bespoke lifts in the UK with all products being CE marked. We have our own nationwide team of service and installation engineers who are also able to carry out statutory inspections and on-site training. For their convenience, the cost of the first year’s statutory inspections, tests and maintenance for the Jones Environmental mezzanine floor goods lift was included in the quotation meaning Mr Jones and team could be rest assured that Statutory Inspections were carried out in accordance with LOLER legislation.
It is now 10 months since the lift was installed and we are happy that the MezzLift mezzanine goods lift is proving a great success in helping Jones Environmental run their business in a productive and safe manner.
