Why was the Desksurfer Designed?

The desksurfer was designed to create an access platform specifically to make it easy to gain access over desks in office buildings.

How Does the Desksurfer Work?

The platform height is adjustable for both low and higher level applications. The desksurfer can be easily moved through doorways and in lifts and then moved in to the required location. The platform can then be raised to gain access to ceilings and lights above desks.

Benefits of the Desksurfer Access Platform

• Very few parts means that it is less likely to break and is easy to maintain

• It is made from robust aluminium alloy, which means that it is light and easy to manoeuvre

• It’s compact size and small footprint, means it can travel through indoor doorways and can fit into lifts • With the added option of a fold down mast, the Desksurfer allows for an increased reach from the platform of between 3.5m to 6.0m

• The vertical mast comes with ladder rungs to suit all height settings

• The desksurfer has the option to be flat packed to allow for easy transportation
