Conducting maintenance in high areas of production facilities in the glass industry presents its own set of problems that need to be overcome. Issues such as health and safety, maneuvrability within small spaces and the requirement of accessing high sites over the product have all been overcome though the supply of electric boom access equipment rented from Eazi Access Rental.

Eazi Access Rental have supplied an Electric 30 Narrow Boom (e30n) to Consol Glass in order for the company to carry out general maintenance at their production line facilities. Electrical Engineer at Consol Glass, Hugo van Zyl said “We have utilised the e30n electric boom for awhile now at our factory. Its biggest advantage is its maneuvrability in tight places. We have general maintenance to conduct over our production lines at great height, where scaffolding is far from suitable and a cumbersome option. We also need to ensure that stock on the floor is not damaged in addition to the glass bottles on our production lines remaining hygienic and in pristine condition. The Eazi electric boom is the most suitable machine in terms of height/reach and complying with health and safety standards”.

The e30n has a working height of 11.14m, a platform capacity of 227kg and a horizontal outreach of 6.53 m. It has an Up and Over Clearance of 3.86 m and weighs only 6.4 kg.

Eazi Access Rental undertake all maintenance issues on rented machinery therefore saving the customer costs and time. While maintenance is conducted, a replacement access machine is supplied to the customer freely. Technical back-up is only a call away, with Eazi Access Rental despatching a technician to site within 24 hours of receiving the call-out.

Eazi Access Rental is one of South Africa leading suppliers of access equipment from electric and diesel boom lifts, telehandlers, personnel lift to trailer mounts and scissor lifts.
