Chamberlain Literature Describes Shipyard Manlift Work Platforms

Chamberlain Manufacturing Corporation, based in Elmhurst, 111., has announced that it is offering free literature to the maritime trade on its Manlift line of work platforms.

Citing the work and safety advantages built into its self-propelled aerial work platforms, Chamberlain Manufacturing Corporation spokesmen point out that Manlift is now being used at every major naval shipyard in the U.S. The machines meet the requirements of governing standard ANSI A 92.2-1969. A range of optional protective gear, such as boots to protect cylinders from sandblast effects, is developed and available.

Advantages enjoyed by users include lift capacities of up to 4,000 pounds, the ability workers have of moving up and over obstacles safely and quickly, and cost-savings realized by being able to replace slings, staging, and scaffolding.

Spokesmen also point out that a Manlift operator can raise, lower, drive, and steer a unit from place to place without removing his work equipment—even when the platform is elevated as high as 53 feet.

Chamberlain has been manufacturing the equipment for several years for a variety of industrial uses, including shipyard functions and airline maintenance.

Their network of national dealers also enables the company to provide factory-trained service representatives and an inventory of parts to all its customers.
