Lyte’s new range of HIPOD Podium Steps, developed to meet the new PAS250 safety standard, are now available to buy from the Prolift Access e-shop.
The HIPODs, which are available in three different sizes, have been designed by Lyte to be the future of low level work platform solutions.
These new HIPODs have an anti-surf option which can be adjusted easily by disengaging two of the castors and replacing them with a slot-in anti-slip foot when required.
The HIPOD 1000 has adjustable platform heights of 0.96m and 0.71m, and has been manufactured with industrial ballasts that ensure it stays safe and secure without the need for stabilisers. It can fit through standard door frames without the need to tilt it.
The HIPOD 1200 (0.95m and 1.2m) and HIPOD 1500 (1.26m and 1.51m) also have two adjustable platform heights. Cleverly positioned ballasts eradicate the need for stabilisers and still allows it to fit through a standard doorway while erected.
This innovative range is unlike any other on the market and has been developed to meet the new PAS250 standard, launched to provide minimum safety and performance criteria for podium steps.
That’s not to say existing podium steps are unsafe – the original Lyte Podium Steps meet all Work at Height Regulations requirements and offer an excellent alternative to stepladders – but until now there has been no formal safety standard for low level work platforms.
PASMA has sponsored the development of PAS250, and any low level work platforms or podiums designed in accordance with PAS250 apply current best practice. Read PASMA’s PAS250 FAQs for more information on the standard.
