Hy-Brid Lifts meets Canadian standards
By Euan Youdale01 October 2020
Low level access equipment manufacturer Hy-Brid Lifts has confirmed its products now meet Canadian CSA A92.20 standards, along with the new US ANSI B354.6 standards.
The CSA Group (formerly the Canadian Standards Association) determines the best practices for safe, reliable operation of access equipment in Canada, just as ANSI does for US customers.
“While the Canadian standards are very similar to the US standards, it is important for us to note this achievement,” said Terry Dolan, Hy-Brid Lifts president and CEO. “Canadian customers can buy confidently, knowing the product was certified through standards set forth by a Canadian governing body.”
A professional engineer oversaw the CSA testing onsite at Hy-Brid Lifts’ facility. After rigorous testing, a Canadian professional engineer reviewed the technical documentation to certify the lifts. As a result, the company said all its products now meet and exceed US and Canadian standards
“All Hy-Brid Lifts are designed with safety and efficiency in mind, and this testing solidifies our position in the industry,” said Ben Froland, Hy-Brid Lifts vice president of engineering. “All models passed the requirements with only a few slight adjustments. Besides that, we documented the performance of the lifts to ensure they meet the standards.”
Two of the newest models – the PS-1930 and ZT-1630 – are part of the full range of CSA-certified products. The PS-1930 is the tallest option from Hy-Brid Lifts, providing a working height of up to 25 feet. This model boasts an overall weight of less than 2,000 pounds, a fraction of the weight of competitive models. Unlike most other 19-foot scissor lifts, the PS-1930 doesn’t require folding rails.
The ZT-1630 is part of Hy-Brid Lifts’ Zero-Turn Series. This series’ innovative point-and-go-style drive provides improved maneuverability in confined spaces. The ZT-1630 offers a working height up to 22 feet and is designed as a more productive alternative to mast lifts on a jobsite.
an industry leader in high-quality, low-level access equipment, meets and exceeds U.S. and Canadian standards to provide the highest level of safety and comfort for customers. Both standards – ANSI A92.20 and CSA B354.6 – are the baseline from which Hy-Brid Lifts engineers each lift model.
