APS appointed UK distributor for Wienold Lift

Norbert Wienold GmbH, the German manufacturer of specialist glass lifts has appointed Access Platform Sales Ltd (APS) of Upton near Huntingdon as their sole UK importer and distributor for the Wienold Lifte range.

The Wienold Lifte product line consists primarily of two manually operated material lifts specially designed for glass handling in the construction and industrial glazing markets, the WLU and Premium models. The Wienold Lift Universal (WLU) uses one chassis and four outrigger sets to create four different models. Lifting heights of 3.5, 5 and 6.5 m are available with a 250 kg capacity. The unique counterbalance system allows close access against walls whilst the large castors make the unit highly manoeuvrable. The stowed width of only 500 mm allows easy access through even the narrowest of doorways. The Premium range offers a greater capacity of 360 - 400 kg, a shorter stowed height of only 1.68 m and working heights from 1.7 - 5.15 m.

APS will also be distributing the original SLK Wienold Superlift with counterbalance weights. All models can be fitted with standard Genie material lift attachments, glass lifters and a crane system.

Lee Louder, Sales Director of APS said, "We are delighted to add the Wienold Lift products to our existing material handling equipment portfolio, and will now be able to offer our customers and even wider choice of lifts for virtually any application. Many of the parts used in the Wienold Lifte range are common to the Genie Material Lift range for which we already carry extensive stocks, so we can offer existing owners a really fast and efficient parts service as well as selling additional machines. We have been very impressed by the innovative, effective design and high build quality of the Wienold product and are sure our customers will love this new addition to our material lift offering."

The Wienold Lifte product will be officially launched in the UK at Vertikal Days 27 - 28th June and available for demonstration on Access Platform Sales Ltd's stand no. 112.
