Does the platform comply with current Health & Safety Regulations ?

Yes, the platform is PM28 compliant and comes supplied with full test certification.  See HERE.

 

How does the platform secure to the lift truck ?

The platform is secured to the lift truck via a removable heel pin, which locates behind the heel of the fork. Once this pin is in place, the platform will be safely secured

 

How do I gain entry into the platform ?

To gain entry, simply lift up the moveable bar that is located on the front of the platform. The bar will then drop back down into place upon release

 

What if my fork dimensions are larger than what you say the platform pockets will accept ?

This will not be a problem, although we would ask you to contact us with your fork dimensions, as we would need to modify the platform pockets to suit

 

LTAP INFORMATION

Our LTAP forklift access platform is arguably the best value for money forklift access platform (aka Man Basket aka Man Cage) on the Market, in the UK. Whilst our Fork lift access platform is very competitively priced, quality and reliability have been increased through intelligent design, to keep the LTAP deliberately simple and safe to use and maintain.

Some of the key benefits of the LTAP Forklift Access Platform can be seen below:

  • - Reliability & Durability
  • - British Manufacture for Quality
  • - PM28 (fourth edition) Compliant for Safety
  • - Certified
  • - 3 year Warranty
  • - Easy to use and Maintain
  • - Designed to be compatible with most Forklifts in UK Market.


The purpose of a Forklift Access Platform (aka Man Basket aka Man Cage), is to enable operators to perform unplanned maintenance, such as changing a lightbulb in a warehouse or clearing leaves from guttering or inspecting warehouse racking, etc.
To do these tasks our customers want a reliable cost effective solution, which enables their operators to perform these task with relative ease and safety, time and again as required.

This is where the LTAP Forklift Access Platform come into its own: it is easy, to secure to your forklift/fork Truck forks via heel pins; and easy to enter via step-through rails. This entry method negates the need for complicated side gate locking mechanisms, with various moving parts, that require regular maintenance.
With falls from Height continually being one of the most likely causes of a work related fatality, ensuring compliance to the Health & Safety Executive PM28 (Fourth edition) Guidance, is critically important to us, this is why we only supply Forklift Access Platforms of high quality and compliance from British Manufacturers. The Safety Features of the LTAP Fork Lift Access Platform include: 

  • - Safety Back Guard with grilled mesh, spaced at 75mm x 12mm centres, to prevent fingers from going through.
  • - Safety Hand and Harness Rails.
  • - Non-slip floors.
  • - Tool containing kick rails (to prevent tool on the floor from sliding out of the forklift access platform).
  • - Full length fork pockets with Heel retaining pins.


The LTAP Forklift Access Platform boasts a 500kg capacity, which is twice that of some other models, which shows the quality and thickness of steel used and intelligence of design. The benefit of this is both greater longevity and the ability to comfortable be used with either one or two operators.

 

 

GENERAL FORKLIFT ACCESS PLATFORM INFORMATION

 

What is a Forklift Access Platform?

 

Forklift Access Platforms (also known as: Man Cages and Non-Integrated Working Platforms), are for the intended purpose of being able to lift people to work at height in exceptional circumstances only, for example to do unplanned maintenance like changing a lightbulb in a warehouse.

 

The HSE (Health & Safety Executive) define a Non-Integrated Working Platform as follows:

 

“‘Non-integrated working platforms’ are attachments for use in conjunction with forklift trucks to elevate people so they can work at height, but they have no controls in the platform that allow someone in the platform to control the platform lift height or move the truck; ie all truck and working platform movements are controlled by the truck operator.”

 

Fork Lift Access Platforms are commonly referred to by suppliers and users of such equipment as Forklift Man Cages or simply just Man Cages, and are a type of Forklift Attachment that are secured to the forklift via a combination of fork channels (these help reduce lateral movement) and by heel pins (these help prevent the Fork Lift Access Platform from sliding off the Forklift).

 

It is important to note that Forklift Access Platforms or “Man Cages” are only one of various methods that can be used for Working at Height; other such methods include Scaffolding and ladders, etc. Therefore it is important for organisations to select the most appropriate equipment for working at height; this decision is typically based upon: the work application, frequency and duration of use etc. When using a forklift attachment is it also important to ensure that you use the right type for your forklift. So we always recommend that organisations have their own Health & Safety Risk Assessment conducted prior to the use of any equipment used for Working at Height.

 

Benefits of using a Forklift Access Platform / Man Cage:

 

Forklift Access Platforms (Man Cages) provide a relatively inexpensive means of enabling people to work at Height for those unforeseen maintenance issues.

 

A Forklift Access Platform / Man Cage can be safely and quickly secured to a forklift’s forks.

 

As a relatively simple piece of equipment a Man Cage / Forklift Access Platform can be easy to use and maintain, as they have no electric or hydraulic parts.

 

Fork Lift Access Platforms / Man Cages that comply to the HSE’s PM28 Guidance (as all of those that we supply at Liftruck UK do) provide added safety when properly used.

 

All of the above shows that it is well worth investing the small amount of money for one of our Forklift Access Platforms / Man Cages as not having one could result in staff becoming injured as a result of taking excessive risks to solve troublesome unforeseen maintenance issues that impede staff from getting on with their work.

 

At Liftruck UK we Supply a variety of Forklift Access Platform / Man Cage Models (all of which are manufactured in the UK and Conform to the HSE PM28 Guidance). The main differences between the models that we offer tend to involve one or more of the following: Method of entry/exit; size of base; and ease of storage. Forklift Access Platforms / Man Cages with these features can be seen via this page. Note that unless otherwise stated all of our items on this page are 2 Man Forklift Access Platforms / Man Cages. However they can of course be used with just one person in them, hence reducing the need for both a 2 man and 1 man forklift Access Platform / Man Cage.

 

Therefore the relatively small investment of purchasing a Forklift Access Platform / Man Cage can help prevent tragic and costly accidents; help keep working environments suitably maintained and thus help keep you organisation operating efficiently.

 

Harness Kits & Forklift Access Platforms / Man Cages

 

We are often asked by customer who order our Forklift Mounted Access Platforms, if they also need to order a Harness kit, if they don’t already have one, and whilst we are not Health and Safety experts, we can refer customers to the HSE’s PM28 Guidance (4th edition).

 

“If people have to lean out of the platform to carry out work at height then they should wear harness and lanyards that are linked to the platform’s harness anchorage points to prevent them from overbalancing and falling over the rails.”
Furthermore, we advise customers to use a Harness and Lanyard, as the relatively low cost of the Harness kit is considerable lower than the potential costs both financial, and to reputation, should an accident happen. Besides which, if you are in a position where you are asking your Staff to work at Height, surely you would want them to be save and value them more than the cost of a Harness Kit, which tend to cost less than £100 plus VAT.

 

Many of our customers order a Harness and Lanyard Kit at the point of order, but some other may already have their own. Either way Harness Kits like all equipment need to be suitable maintained, and when they are warn and no longer usable, need to be replaced.
