Skyjack’s XStep Recognized by the RER in the 2022 Innovative Product Awards
POSTED February 10, 2023
Linamar Corporation’s (TSX:LNR) Skyjack took home the bronze award in the 2022 edition of the RER’s Annual Innovative Product Awards, receiving recognition for their XStep.
XStep safely enables operators to gain additional work height in tight spaces such as HVAC units, piping and other ceiling mounted structures. XStep is mounted securely on the mid-rail of the scissor lift and creates an additional 19 inches (48 cm) of working height to maximize productivity. The design and height of the top railing provides operators with the same degree of security as a conventional platform.
“Safety has always been at the forefront of Skyjack’s development and the new XStep is no exception,” shares Rafael Bazzarella, product manager at Skyjack. “With customer feedback in mind, we developed the XStep to safely provide operators access to hard-to-reach places. The design and height of the top railing on the XStep, as well as entry and exit via the locking gate, ensures operators have the same degree of security as a conventional platform.”
Voted upon by a panel of judges to be among the most innovative and valuable to the rental industry, the XStep is the latest addition to Skyjack’s ACCESSORYZERS™ line.
“We are proud that our XStep was recognized for innovation,” says Malcolm Early, Vice President, Marketing at Skyjack. “It had become clear that a tool to allow increased reach in a safe manner was needed. With XStep, working height is maximized and productivity is improved with increased access into and around difficult spaces. A sincere thank you to the RER and voting committee, as well as our tireless and dedicated product development team.”
