What are Glass Aerial Lifts

What are Glass Aerial Lifts?

Glass Aerial Lifts, also known as glass installation lifts or glazing lifts, are specialized equipment designed for the installation and maintenance of glass and other building materials. These lifts are typically used for tasks such as installing windows, curtain walls, and skylights in high-rise buildings, as well as for building facade maintenance, cleaning, and repair work.

The most common type of glass aerial lift is a boom lift, which consists of a platform that is elevated using a telescoping boom arm. The platform is large enough to accommodate a team of workers, as well as the necessary tools and materials for the job. Boom lifts come in a variety of sizes and configurations, including electric-powered and diesel-powered models, and can reach heights of up to 150 feet or more.

Another type of glass aerial lift is the scissor lift, which uses a scissor-like mechanism to raise and lower the platform. These lifts are generally smaller and have a lower lifting capacity than boom lifts, but they are more compact and can be used in tight spaces where a boom lift cannot fit. Scissor lifts can reach heights of up to 40 feet or more.

When using a glass aerial lift, it is important to follow all safety guidelines and procedures. This includes wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment, such as hard hats, safety harnesses, and fall protection equipment, and properly securing all tools and materials to the platform to prevent them from falling. The workers operating the lift should also be properly trained and certified to do so.

Overall, glass aerial lifts are an essential tool for the installation and maintenance of glass and other building materials in high-rise buildings. With the ability to safely and efficiently reach heights of up to 150 feet, these lifts make it possible to perform work that would be impossible to do by hand.
