IN THE SPOTLIGHT – The magic of Christmas: let’s put the Christmas lights on

The charm of Christmas lights is always irresistible. Suddenly the cities change their appearance and dress of lights, becoming the bright scenery of our Christmas.

But how does this change in our cities?

In fact, installation and maintenance of Christmas lights requires a valuable ally: aerial platforms are the ideal tools for working at height in complete safety and optimizing time and costs.

CTE’s truck mounted platforms are suitable to operate in the cities thanks to their versatility and some valuable features, specially designed to facilitate the work at height and make it safer.

H STABILISATION: our ZED models with H stabilisation allow to stabilise the plaftorm overcoming hilly terrain up to 220 mm. They are the optimal solution for working on not perfectly flat ground or along the sidewalks.

VARIABLE STABILISATION: ZED 20.2 HV model with variable stabilisation allows to stabilise the platform also in narrow spaces thanks to the narrow jacking configuration, on right or on left, extended, ideal for working in towns, along busy streets, along sidewalks.

JIB: ZED 21.2 JH and ZED 23.2 JH models have the jib, an extension of the boom that allows to overcome obstacles and reach points of difficult access. This is a precious help for installation and maintenance of insignia and light systems near roofs, trusses and subways.

INCREASED CAPACITY IN THE BASKET: ZED models with increased capacity allow you to work at height with a maximum capacity of 300 kg, 2 people + working equipment. This feature is ideal for maintenance operations that need heavy equipment.

ANTI-CRUNCHING PROTECTION FOR OPERATOR HANDS: meeting the requirement of the EN 280:2013, starting from January 2015 the handrail of the CTEaerial platforms’ basket presents a double bar protecting operator and passenger hands during aerial maneuvers.

GROUND CONTROL STATION: thanks to a ground control station, it is possible to maneuver the aerial platform in maximum safety both for the operator on the ground and the operator in the platform. The system provides full visibility of aerial operations in favor of safety and comfort of use.
