Lift tables are used in single scissor, tandem or double scissor versions. While single scissor lift tables are equipped with one scissor per longitudinal side, tandem lift tables are equipped with two scissors per longitudinal side, allowing a longer table length. In the case of double scissor lift tables, two scissors are installed one above the other on each longitudinal side, allowing a greater height to be achieved.

Depending on the application, a lifting table can be equipped with chain curtains, bellows or PVC curtains. It is also possible to equip the platform with railings, which are necessary if persons enter the platform at a height of fall > 500 mm. For loading lift tables that are placed in front of a loading ramp, portal railings that serve as fall protection are suitable. All lifting tables comply with the safety requirements of EN 1570-1.
