Horizon Platforms Relieve Racking Sector Woes with the Rack Pack

Horizon Platforms Relieve Racking Sector Woes with the Rack Pack

Horizon Platforms, a specialist supplier of working-at-height equipment, is resolving common racking installation issues with their new, all-in-one package: The Rack Pack. 

After working closely with those in the racking sector, Horizon Platforms saw first-hand the most common issues facing installers, namely negotiating with several suppliers and the late arrival of equipment. As such, the Rack Pack takes an innovative approach, providing scissor lifts and forklift trucks from one supplier, on the same delivery.

Chris Wraith, a health and safety specialist with over 30 years in the powered access industry, outlined the impact of delays. He said: “Those working in the racking industry need the right machine, at the right time, with the right support. When you’re working on a fixed contract over a set time period and at a defined price, any unexpected expense or delay presents a problem. When you start adding up labour costs, this downtime can be quite significant.”

Horizon’s reliable service helps to eliminate downtime, as Chris explained: “Dealing with one supplier for everything, rather than one forklift supplier and potentially several scissor lift hire companies, means it’s all coming from one source. With one point of contact, you’ll have the equipment there and ready when you need it, so the job can run smoothly.”

The Rack Pack is supported by Horizon’s customer service. As one of the few access equipment suppliers to receive IPAF Rental+ GOLD accreditation, racking installers can be sure they receive the highest levels of equipment, service and care from a dedicated advisor. 

Chris continued: “Because of Horizon’s IPAF Rental+ GOLD accreditation, you can rely on quality. The quality of the supplier, the quality of the product and the quality of service, all adds up to a more relaxed process and working environment.”

With the Rack Pack, installers can be confident that they are receiving the equipment they need, when they need it.
