North East CCTV specialist 2020 Vision is the first company to use new state of the art access equipment provided by Warren Access.
Warren Access, based in Newcastle, has become the first equipment hire company in the North to take ownership of a MULTITEL MX270 access platform, the newest addition to its fleet of hydraulic platforms, a platform which can reach up to 27 meters, equal to the height of the towers at the Tyne Bridge.
There are currently only three machines of its kind in the UK, with Warren Access being the only company in the North to make the £90k investment into the advanced equipment.
2020 Vision, based in North Shields, has used Warren Access as its vertical access partner for a number of years and is delighted to be the first company to put the new technology to the test.
CCTV cameras are often installed in difficult to reach locations and on a variety of properties. Gaining access to these areas for installing and maintaining cameras is often challenging for the CCTV system installer. Through Warren Access’ investment the task will now be made simpler.
Peter Houlis, managing director of 2020 Vision, commented: “Whenever we work on a CCTV camera, be it for installation or for maintenance purposes we have to be mindful of our responsibility to the health and safety of our staff and the client, and in the case of urban surveillance, the general public.
“Although we have our own van mount hydraulic platforms there are times when they just aren’t big enough for the job. We were therefore delighted when Warren Access invested in the new MULTITEL MX270 hydraulic platform. We can now fulfil even more requests from our valued clients.”
The new platform is mounted on a 7.5 tonne chassis cab, and has a payload of 225kg.
Graeme Warren, partner of family firm Warren Access, said: “This hydraulic platform will allow us to reach many more jobs that previously were inaccessible with other machines. It is 10 metres higher than anything else in the fleet and gives nearly 4 metres more extra outreach. This machine is now operating throughout the North East, covering the Northumberland, Tyne & Wear and County Durham regions. We are delighted that as a long term customer, 2020 Vision is the first company to reach for the sky using our new equipment.”
Warren Access was established in 1993 and specialises in the hire and supply of vehicle mounted hydraulic platforms and cherrypickers. Its extensive fleet now ranges from 8.75m to 27m in height on either van or lorry mounted platforms.
