Elevating Work Platforms (EWP) For Solar Panel Installations

The popularity of solar panel installation is skyrocketing across Australia as the cost of emissions to the planet becomes apparent. Installing solar panels on houses and industrial sites is a job made easier when you hire an Elevating Work Platform (EWP), especially an articulated boom lift or a scissor lift. These versatile and flexible elevated work platforms can boost productivity and safety.

Eliminate Risks during the solar panel installation

Using EWP eliminates many safety risks when solar panel installers rely on ladders or other high-reach equipment.


• Boom lifts and scissor lifts use hinged and scissor arms to position the platform into precise locations, allowing the technicians and their tools to sit comfortably and safely on the platform to achieve the height and placing as required.


• Awkward angles such as sloping rooves can be worked on accurately from the safety of an Elevating Work Platform (EWP).


• Slippery rooves, too short ladders, loose tiles or delicate skylights will be less of a problem when Elevating Work Platforms are employed.


• An articulated boom with an auxiliary power unit such as the Genie Z TM-34/22 IC allows safe use of power tools in high reach and vertical situations without extension cords.

Speed up the Job with an Elevating Work Platform (EWP)

Higher productivity without compromising worker safety is a prime consideration for any job. After all, time is money. Renting an Elevating Work Platform from Access Hire will decrease hours on the job.

• Two operators, their tools and their lunch can be carried in the articulated boom lift or scissor lift platform, which saves energy and introduces higher output levels.


• Your operators can use the same Elevating Work Platform to move around the site as they install the solar panels.


• Power units are part of the boom lift or scissor lift platform, allowing power tools to be used efficiently.
