Sherpamatic and Sherpascopic work platforms provide a solution where ladders are no longer appropriate for the job, for instance because ofl ong duration of the work or existisng features on site. It has stabiliser legs and an all-round guardrail that hinges to allow entry into the work platform. The Sherpamatic is available in a range of platform heights from 0.72-1.65m, three to seven treads. Where more flexibility is required, the Sherpascopic is a height adjustable work platform available in two models. Constructed telescopically it can be adjusted to provide variable working heights with between 4-6 or 7-9 treads. Both the Sherpamatic and Sherpascopic meets the French standard for platform heights between 1 and 2.5m. This standard - NF P 93-352 - defines the tests and maxium loads for rungs, platforms and guardrails and include a test for toppling.
