Access Platforms are what Planet Platforms are synonymous with as a leading manufacturer of access equipment.

Access Platforms come in many sizes and configurations, which are reflective of their intended use. This use has increased due to demand and a change to regulation governing how, where and when they should be deployed.

Being at the forefront of the UK access equipment manufacturing sector, Planet Platforms has adapted and evolved in response to these changes and our innovative designs are testament to the long-term relationships with our customers.

Aluminium has always been the preferred material to work with as its lightness and strength produce access platforms that are easy to move and built to last. Then with the advancements in technology, fibreglass gave users a new material option being suitable for use in unique environments, such as those in the offshore, petrochemical and electrical industries.

The evolution of our platforms is also attributed to a much simpler fact and that is the needs of our customers.

The access equipment we manufacture has become more versatile and multifunctional. Being height adjustable is one way we offer this flexibility and linking multiple units together increases the scope of their application.
