This year’s IWEX 2011 exhibition (at Sustainability Live in Birmingham NEC) hosted the official launch of REID’s latest lifting innovation, the PORTA-GANTRY RAPIDE rated 500kg.

Ideal for customers needing an easily stowed and quick to deploy lifting solution, the PORTA-GANTRY RAPIDE WLL 500kg represents the most ultra-light product in REID’s already impressive range.

Managing Director Nick Battersby commented: “At REID we’re all about innovative lifting solutions that are lightweight, portable and safe, especially when it ties in with what our customers are telling us they need. This philosophy has never been so well demonstrated as it is with the PORTA-GANTRY RAPIDE which has been developed to address some key customer application areas across many sectors. We see the PORTA-GANTRY RAPIDE being well received by the water industry where rapid deployment, single person operation, compact stowage and portability are key factors especially for both safety and productivity.”

Rated up to WLL 500kg for goods lifting, the ultra lightweight PORTA-GANTRY RAPIDE can be assembled by one person in under one minute, without compromising on the safe performance REID is known for, and with EN795 Class B certification for as many as 3 people attached to the system the PORTA-GANTRY RAPIDE is ideally positioned for confined space, work at height and rapid deployment applications as well as general lifting use.
