Speedy adds the Custom Equipment Hybrid scissor to its fleet, sold in the UK by R2.

UK tool and equipment hire company Speedy has invested £600000 in low level access products.

The new fleet of mobile elevated work platforms includes the Power Tower and the Power Tower Nano, Braviisol's Leonardo tower and Custom Equipment's Hy-Brid, a battery operated compact scissor lift suitable for both carpeted areas and limited capacity mezzanine floors.

The investment significantly increases the company's fleet of low level access equipment which will help it cater for the growing demand from maintenance, facilities management and mechanical and electrical engineering customers.

Andy Connor, Speedy's supply chain director, said, "We've listened to our customers and recognised increasing demand for the very latest low level access solutions.

"Our new products have been carefully selected to ensure users can work as safely and effectively as possible. The equipment is more robust and offers a larger platform size and greater reach."

The new equipment complements Speedy's existing range of access equipment, which includes PopUp scissors, monkey towers and podiums.

Speedy is also launching a low level access guide to help customers select the best equipment for the job. It includes an equipment selector chart and details of recommended safety gear.

Speedy's dedicated training division offers a range of working at height courses including IPAF, PASMA, safety harness awareness, rooftop safety and scaffold safety inspection.
