WHY ARE THE RAILS GETTING TALLER?

You might have noticed rails getting taller on new scissor lifts and this is why.

What does the Standard say?

4.6.3.1 Protection shall be provided on all sides of each work platform that is intended to prevent the fall of persons and materials.  The protection shall be securely fastened to the work platform and shall, at a minimum, consist of guardrails at least 43.3 in (1.1 m) high, toeguards at least .33 ft (0.1 m) high and intermediate guardrails not further than 1.80 ft (0.55 m) from either the guardrails or the toeguards.

With the previous standard, rail heights were not required to be this high.  Many manufacturers had lower rail heights to allow for passage through standard doorways.  Increased rail heights it leading many manufacturers to consider alternative designs like folding rails.

What we changed...

There will be almost no change to rail height.  Hy-Brid Lifts have always had taller rails.  For most models, there will only be a difference of half an inch.

Hy-Brid Lifts features a unique concave base design.  Typical scissor lifts a built with the scissor stack on top of the base, adding height to the step-in and stowed height.  Hy-Brid Lifts scissor stack is built into the concave base resulting in low step-in and stowed heights.  The benefit is all of our lifts being able to fit through a standard door, including the all new PS-1930, with taller rails that are fixed and do not need to fold down.

The updated rail system is interchangeable between Pro and Zero-Turn Series. 

All Hy-Brid Lifts fit through a standard doorway without having to fold down rails
