Aerial Work Platforms: A Trend Report
San Jose, California (PRWEB) May 12, 2014
Follow us on LinkedIn - Aerial work platforms (AWPs), also termed as elevated work platforms, are mechanical devices that are widely used for providing temporary, flexible access to difficult and inaccessible areas. Commonly used to access areas at greater heights, these work platforms find applications in industrial units, emergency services and construction sites. The devices feature a platform, surrounded by a cage or railings for safety purposes. As indispensable tools for construction and building maintenance, demand for aerial work platforms is expected to benefit largely from the recovery in the construction sector in the United States and Europe and strong residential/commercial construction projects and public infrastructure spending in developing regions including the BRICs. Also fueling growth is the legislation of stringent worker safety norms coupled with growing awareness over occupational safety and health as a result of high decibel educative campaigns. High costs associated with workplace hazards, illnesses and injuries are encouraging investments in aerial work platforms with safety features such as automatic self-checking of mechanical moving parts and components, voltmeters to detect voltage irregularities, pothole protection system, and tilt alarms, among others.
