What is a MiniLift?

Electrician Working

Scaffolding is both complex and time-consuming to set up, likewise ladders can be unsafe to use and awkward to manoeuvre around a worksite. MiniLift takes the hassle out of ceiling work. The lightweight and compact design make it perfect for manoeuvring in tight spaces. It’s also easy to operate and requires minimum maintenance making it the simple choice for accessing hard to reach places.

The MiniLift concept was developed in response to the desperate need for an effective access tool within the construction industry. Frustrated and fatigued after working long hours on construction sites, the creators became increasingly concerned about their safety and productivity levels. Relying on ladders and scaffolding to get the job done wasn’t good enough. At the time there was nothing on the market that would do the job they wanted. This motivated them to create a solution in the form of a portable elevated work platform that could be easily dismantled and transported.

The MiniLift was born.


The MiniLift has been designed to be primarily used in construction trade services, including:
