The prospect of holidaying abroad this year is still not a certainty but with the vaccination programme offering a glimmer of hope to the return of some normality, people are naturally looking to plan for a summer holiday.
A staycation holiday in the UK looks set to become most people’s destination of choice.
Current estimates indicate that there are 550,000 touring caravans and 225,000 campervans or motorhomes on Britain’s roads. This popular holidaying option, whether it is for a quick weekend break or longer summer vacation, shows no signs in reducing in its appeal, particularly so this year.
This increase in popularity has logically led to an increase in demand for these types of vehicles and it is of no surprise that at Planet Platforms we have dealt with several manufacturers, distributors, and maintenance companies, installing safe work at height systems. These deal with tasks such as vehicle build, maintenance and repair.
Our platforms are manufactured predominantly from aluminium, as its lightweight and strength enables us to span down the side or across vehicles. Set on swivel and locking castors these systems can be quick brought into service, with set-up times literally taking minutes.
What we have found within this industry is that flexibility to suit different vehicles is of paramount importance. Our designs reflect this need with the ability to use individual modules alone or linked to form longer work platforms. Additionally, being able to move the platforms to different working heights, increase their scope of use.
Alternative decking options gives the flexibility to broaden even further the range of tasks that can be achieved safely with our vehicle platforms. Fibreglass mesh decking, for example, prevents the pooling of fluids, so they can be used to help clean vehicles before being maintained or returned to the customer.
