The Pecolift from Nationwide Platforms, is playing its part in enabling safe and effective work at height during the £80 m refurbishment of Reading Train Station.

The access platform, which can elevate to working heights of 3.5 metres simply by operators turning an intuitive handle, has proved to be an ideal alternative to podiums and steps for a wide range of engineering, maintenance and finishing tasks.

To date, around 25 units have been deployed for daily use on the site. With no electricity or fuel required to provide power, the Pecolift boasts clear environmental credentials whilst also enabling fast, cost-effective and a safety-focussed method of working.

On the Reading Station site, the low level access platform has enjoyed strong popularity from electrical engineers who have benefited from the product’s excellent manoeuvrability when completing wiring, installation and testing tasks in a wide number of areas throughout the redevelopment.

With a simple “push-around” design and no additional worries about battery or fuel depletion, the platform can easily and effectively be moved around site as required - inside or out.

Philip Knapton’s team working for NG Bailey has used Pecolift units for electrical work behind the scenes of the station redevelopment. Speaking on how the product has aided work, he said: “Working safely and effectively is central to all of the tasks we undertake as a business. At Reading Station we’ve been pleased to utilise the Pecolift as a means of contributing to the success of the project through new efficiencies associated with working at height.”
