Platforms on a 100% electric vehicle
1- You work in an urban environment, in confined spaces and your area of intervention does not exceed 200km per day or you have the possibility of regularly connecting to a charging point.
2- You are required to work indoors and outdoors with your lifting platform.
In these cases, 100% electric is perfect for you!
These carrier platforms do not release pollutants into the atmosphere when in motion or when working at height. They are also almost silent, which is a real plus for residents.
The 100% electric models are perfect for working in the city, especially in pedestrian areas or on industrial sites.
Platform on a natural gas vehicle
This type of lift has many advantages:
- Load capacity is equal to the diesel version
- Fuel savings of up to 35%
- 4dB quieter compared to the diesel version
- No AdBlue®
It is therefore an excellent way to reduce your energy consumption without compromising on autonomy.
The only constraint is to be near a station that supplies natural gas because this fuel is not yet distributed everywhere.
Electric platforms on a diesel vehicle: the hybrid option
If you do not find the other two options suitable, you can still equip yourself with an electrically operated aerial work platform on a diesel vehicle.
Of course, the vehicle remains polluting during trips, but you can work at height with the carrier's engine off. This way you reduce your fuel consumption as well as pollution during your interventions. In addition, this makes it possible to limit noise pollution for residents.
This option applies to all types of carriers: vans, light vehicles or heavy goods vehicles.
In conclusion, economical and environmentally friendly solutions exist for all types of work at height.

Can a MEWP be used as a substitute for a crane?
Due to their specific design, MEWP can only be used to elevate operators and their equipment. They are designed for accessing high areas that would otherwise be difficult to access. Whilst crane are designed to lift and move heavy objects.
Operator Comfort in Aerial Platforms: A Key to Safety
Aerial platform operators are akin to superheroes. Working at heights, they face unique challenges and must contend with various risks. It is imperative to ensure that their risky work is made as secure as possible. One way to achieve this is by enhancing operator comfort when using an aerial platform. At Klubb, we recognize that investing in operator comfort can have a significant impact on their safety and productivity.
PPE: what is their importance for the safety of operators?
Personal protective equipment (PPE) has the role of protecting operators of aerial work platforms from the various risks they face in their profession. PPE is not the only form of protection, but rather one among other safety measures that employers, employees on site, and manufacturers providing safe work platforms should consider.
