Galvanised scissor lift tables
All scissor lift tables are available on request with a galvanised platform and a galvanised base frame. In combination with a special paint finish on the scissors, these lift tables are particularly suitable for applications where they are frequently exposed to moisture .
Although a good paint finish would also provide sufficient corrosion protection, it would have one decisive disadvantage. It is not abrasion resistant. This means that the paint on the lift table is slightly damaged during each loading process, so that at some point sufficient protection can no longer be guaranteed. To avoid this problem, we use a hot-dip galvanised version for all lift tables used outdoors.
As already mentioned, we can also supply all scissor lift tables in a hot-dip galvanised version. It does not matter whether it is a standard lift table for 500 kg or a special lift platform for 8,000 kg, or whether the platform needs to carry a Euro pallet or a car. We can offer you the right product.
We can also customise the equipment to meet your specific needs and requirements . For example, we not only supply loading lift tables with a hand controller, but also with a foot control integrated in the platform. You can obtain the necessary platform railings, access doors and much more from us. You can find an overview of our extras in the lift table accessories section.
Hot-dip galvanised vs electro galvanised
Galvanised scissor lifts are used when higher corrosion protection is required. For this reason we treat our components with hot-dip galvanising. The great advantage of hot-dip galvanising is the excellent bonding of the zinc with the actual steel structure.
In the case of electro galvanising or thermal zinc spraying, the zinc is only deposited on the steel components – no firm bond is formed. Unfortunately, only thin coatings can be achieved with this surface treatment, which are only durable in mildly corrosive environments. Just as with painting, there is a risk that the zinc coating will detach from the steel structure and consequently no longer provide protection against corrosion.
The situation is different with hot-dip galvanising. The prior pickling of the steel structure and the high bath temperature enable the zinc to penetrate the structural steel and so ensure long-term and abrasion-resistant protection against corrosion.
The cheaper alternative
If you want to achieve a high level of corrosion protection, you have four options: a costly paint finish, a galvanised finish or the use of stainless steel or aluminium. If the lift table is used outdoors, we cannot recommend a paint finish, as it does not provide long-term corrosion protection due to abrasion. In comparison, stainless steel or aluminium offers excellent protection against corrosion, but there are also disadvantages.
Stainless steel is a cost-intensive material for two reasons: Firstly, the material itself is very expensive and secondly, machining is complex. In the production of stainless steel lift tables, for example, strict separation between stainless steel and structural steel must be ensured – both in terms of tools and work areas. If, for example, the same press brake were to be used for a stainless steel lift table as for a standard lift table made of structural steel, corrosion could occur on the contact surface.
This means that a stainless-steel lift table costs about four times as much as a hot-dip galvanised scissor lift table of a comparable design.
Frequently asked questions & our answers ...
Where is the headquarters of Janzen Lifttechnik GmbH?
We are at home in the rural Emsland, more precisely in Niederlangen a part of the Lathen municipality directly on the A31 motorway. This means that we are roughly halfway between North Rhine-Westphalia and the North Sea, right on the Dutch border.
Our region is known, among other things, for the various nature reserves, the well-developed cycle paths, the manufacture of cruise ships, as well as the headquarters of various distilleries.
Should you ever come to our region, we look forward to a visit in our Plant.
Where are the lifting tables and elevators produced?
With us, not only does the final assembly take place in Germany, but we also cover the entire production chain from construction through steel construction to final assembly in our plant in Niederlangen. With us you get a real 'Made in Germany'.
Is the offer aimed only at traders or also at private individuals?
Even if our products are mainly used in an industrial environment, we naturally also offer them to private individuals.
Just give us a call or send us an inquiry and we will be happy to contact you.
Will I receive a drawing before production starts?
In any case. To ensure that you get the product that you really want, we provide you with an approval drawing before production begins. In addition to the actual product, this also includes the installation situation. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words.
Can I get a CAD model?
You can receive a (greatly) simplified CAD model of our standard products before ordering. After the order and the construction phase, we can also provide you with CAD models of the individual special lifting tables. A data exchange is possible in all common formats (.stp, .dxf, .dwg etc.).
Where can you deliver to?
We produce our lifting tables and column jacks in accordance with European standards and guidelines. Accordingly, our sales area is limited to all countries that recognize these standards and guidelines (e.g. the members of the European Union, Switzerland and Australia).
Is it possible to assemble in the same area?
On request, we assemble our systems throughout Germany, as well as in the neighboring countries of Germany.
