Glidelift Access Platform

The easy way to gain low level access using the Glidelift.

What is the Glidelift?

The Glidelift provides a low cost, versatile and simple to use, low level access solution.

Why was the Glidelift Created?

The Glidelift evolved from the Deskglider,/Desksurfer and similarly delivers a low level access solution.

The Glidelift was developed to provide a solution to a number of applications including: factories and warehouses, quick and easy maintenance access for FM applications, decorating and window cleaning, showroom maintenance, retail display and assembly, and over display work.

How Does the Glidelift Work?

It is constructed from lightweight aluminium and has a simple height adjustable platform. The maximum reach height is 4.00m, with an overreach capacity of 0.9m.  The platform can also be moved, positioned and the height adjusted by a single user.
