JMS stand to attention with tracked boom hire job in Leeds
When Royal Armouries at Leeds, Yorkshire required a boom lift to enable them to undertake a deep clean inside the Hall of Steel, they called the Leeds depot of JMS Powered Access.
It wasn’t a straight forward task for the client. The cleaning team needed a combination of height, electric power and there was the small matter of a beautiful marble floor to traverse.
The JMS team specified the Teupen Leo 24GT – a powerful Lithium ion track mounted boom lift as the perfect mix – the machine glided through the 2m x 1.7m doorway, traversing the delicate marble finish without leaving any marks. It then allowed the cleaning operatives to safely have access up to 24m of working height and a useful 12m of working outreach, useful to get up and above obstacles on the floor below.
Once in place, it needed to operate quietly and emission free, ideal for the powerful Lithium-ion Leo that has ample power for a full operating shift too.
The Royal Armouries in Leeds is a multi-million pound purpose-built museum that opened to the public on 30th March 1996 and is home to the national collection of arms and armour. It displays over 8,500 objects throughout its six themed galleries: War, Tournament, Oriental, Self-Defence, Hunting, and Peace. The Impressive Hall of Steel was closed to allow a thorough deep clean of over 2,500 items from the collection. The Royal Armouries Museum is located at Leeds Dock, which is only a short distance from the centre of Leeds, West Yorkshire.
