What is Low Level Access?

Low level access is a term coined by the access industry to describe a range of machines that work at low level heights, typically up to around 5m.

They are often found operating where ladders and steps were previously used – indoors, on flat and level surfaces.

Low level machines can either be push-around – where an operator simply pushes the machine to the next desired work location or self-propelled – where the machine is driveable.





Do I need IPAF training license to operate a Power Towers platform?

Yes – IPAF training is required to be able to operate this equipment safely.

A PAV PAL licence for push-around models

An IPAF 3a PAL licence for self-propelled machines.





How many operators can a Power Towers platform hold?

Platform capacity varies across the range – see individual machine specifications on our website. However, most low level platforms are suitable for a single operator plus tools and equipment.



Can low level machines be used outdoors?

There are two Wind Rated models suitable for use outdoors – Power Towers Wind Rated Ecolift and Wind Rated Pecolift.

Suitable for operation on flat, level surfaces outdoors. They are both available to hire from JMS.



Why did JMS choose Power Towers?

We asked JMS Managing Director Mark Jackson for his thoughts. Mark said “The Power Towers product is a great range of access platforms with a proven track record. They work particularly well in office or retail environments where they are a great alternative to traditional ladders and steps
