Why galvanized scissor lift tables?
All our scissor lift tables are available optionally with a galvanized platform and subframe. Combined with a special paint coating on the scissor, these lift tables are particularly suitable for applications where they are frequently exposed to moisture.
While good painting already provides sufficient corrosion protection, it has a significant drawback: it is not abrasion-resistant. This means that with each loading operation, the paint on the lift table can be slightly damaged, leading to insufficient protection over time. For this reason, we always opt for a hot-dip galvanized version for our lift tables for outdoor use.
As mentioned earlier, we can offer all our scissor lift tables in a hot-dip galvanized version. It doesn't matter if it's a standard lift table with a load capacity of 500 kg or a custom scissor lift for 16,000 kg.
We are also flexible in terms of additional equipment.
For loading lift tables, for example, we can provide a foot control integrated into the platform instead of a manual control.
Additionally, platform railings, access doors, and many other options are available - in hot-dip galvanized execution for steel components, of course.

Hot-dip galvanized vs. electrolytically galvanized
When high corrosion protection is required, we have our steel components hot-dip galvanized. The significant advantage of hot-dip galvanizing lies in the strong bond between the zinc and the actual steel structure.
In contrast, with electrolytically galvanizing or thermal zinc spraying, the zinc only adheres to the steel components - there is no strong bond. This surface treatment can achieve thin coatings that are durable in mildly corrosive environments. Similar to paint, there is a risk of the zinc coating peeling off, leading to a loss of corrosion protection.
The situation is different with hot-dip galvanizing. Through the prior pickling of the steel and the high bath temperature, the zinc penetrates the structural steel, providing long-lasting and abrasion-resistant corrosion protection.
Hot-dip galvanizing - a cost-effective solution?
When it comes to achieving high corrosion protection, there are generally four options: an elaborate painting, the use of stainless steel or aluminum, or hot-dip galvanizing of components.
For a lift table used outdoors, a completely painted version is not recommended, as long-term corrosion protection is not guaranteed due to possible abrasion (especially on the platform).
While stainless steel or aluminum offer excellent corrosion protection, there are also disadvantages. Stainless steel is relatively expensive due to its material costs and intricate processing. Strict separation of stainless steel and structural steel must be maintained in our production to prevent possible corrosion at contact surfaces. A stainless steel lift table can cost about four times as much as a comparable hot-dip galvanized scissor lift table.
Aluminum, as a material, also incurs high material costs and involves complex processing. Additionally, the modulus of elasticity of aluminum is significantly lower than that of steel. To achieve the same load capacity and stability as with a galvanized lift table, a special custom design is required.
Thus, hot-dip galvanizing often provides the most cost-effective corrosion protection.
Frequently asked questions & our answers ...
Where is the headquarters of Janzen Lifttechnik GmbH?
We are at home in the beautiful Emsland, more precisely in Niederlangen a member community of the joint community Lathen 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 lift tables and lifts 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 enquiry 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?
After ordering and the design phase, we are pleased to provide you with CAD models. Data exchange is possible in all common formats, including .stp, .dxf, .dwg, etc.
Where can delivery of the products be made?
We produce our lift tables and column lifts 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).
For which countries is the assembly service available?
On request, we assemble our systems throughout Germany, as well as in the neighboring countries of Germany.
