 Traditional batteries are subject to continuous maintenance, and the sector of aerial platforms also suffers the consequences of this issue.

On the list of problems found in industrial machines, lead-acid batteries are at the top, often due to improper maintenance and to their short lifespan.

Platform Basket, a company specialized in the design and construction of aerial platforms, self-propelled boom lifts and spider lifts decided to implement Flash Battery lithium batteries in place of the more common lead-acid batteries, opting to produce industrial machines that are more flexible and maintenance-free.

In addition to the obvious benefits to the environment, this choice of energy supply compared to a lead-acid battery also has other advantages:

  • no periodic maintenance
  • twice the range 
  • fast charging that enables intensive use of the machine
  • battery weight three times lighter (significantly affecting the total weight of the platform)
  • lithium battery lifespan three times longer 
  • no gas emissions during charging

A motor drive powered by a lithium battery also makes it possible to use the platform in any environment: the absence of gas emissions makes it possible to charge the platform anywhere in the facility in total safety.

The high efficiency of lithium batteries, up to 25% higher than that of lead batteries, provides significant energy savings and reduces carbon dioxide emissions into the environment.
