Access Platform Sales (APS) offers a range of manual handling solutions designed to move materials safely and efficiently in the workplace.

Telpro’s material handling can revolutionise your on-site productivity, make light work of moving bulky materials and significantly reduce the risk of personal injury due to strains or falls.

DRILLRITE Overhead Concrete Drill Press
Overhead drilling into concrete, as anyone who has done it will know, is tough and unpleasant work. It’s like doing a balancing act 1 – 2 metres off the ground while holding a 25kg sandbag over your head while it leaks into your face! Once again Telpro have a solution with the Drillrite which allows the operator to work from ground level on ceilings up to 3.6m high, removing the risk of falls, and has an integrated dust capture system which can be connected to the user-supplied vacuum cleaner to remove dangerous airborne silica dust. Just like all Telpro products, Drillrite is easily portable and helps get the job done safely, quicker and more efficiently.
KEY FEATURES • Reaches up to 3.6m high ceilings
• Easy to manoeuvre on site • In-built dust capture • Simple to use & low maintenance

DOORMINATOR Door Handling Units
The patent pending Doorminator allows installation of heavy and awkward doors by a single person, saving time and money! Thanks to heavy duty castors, the door can be easily rolled into position through the doorway, positioned and held in place during installation. Fully adjustable, the Doorminator can be tilted front-to-back and side-to-side, and moved up-and-down allowing precise alignment with the door jamb. Transport and storage is easy thanks to the folding mechanism, and although easy to handle, construction is robust enough to stand up to a tough life on site.
KEY FEATURES • Fully adjustable for easy alignment • One person to install • Folds up for easy transport
