dino previews product range

The DINO range of aerial work platforms consists of: 10 trailer-mounted types, covering working heights from 10.5 to 26 metres, and two self-propelled models (20.5 and 24 metres).

The booms of the DINOs are based on telescopic boom or articulating telescopic boom structures. All the DINOs feature continuous boom rotation and hydraulic outriggers. Basket rotation is standard in all the DINOs, and the baskets are equipped with two power outlets. Easy towability is common to all the trailer-mounted DINO units. The trailers are driven by electricity, and are also available with either gasoline or diesel aggregate. The self-propelled units use a Caterpillar diesel engine as the power source, and electric use is provided as an option. The self-propellers are agile and easy to use in rough terrain. Hydraulic outriggers make the units light in weight and can thus work on fragile ground and be lifted to work up in multi-storey buildings.

Dino Lift has been awarded with the ISO 9001 certificate.

Logison Sound Masking System – Technology for Productivity and Privacy

A sound masking system typically consists of speakers installed in a grid-like pattern above the suspended ceiling. The system introduces a specific background sound at controlled levels across the facility, rendering speech unintelligible to individuals outside of the immediate area of an office or workstation, reducing distracting sounds and minimising acoustic variations within the space. Low background noises levels in offices often allow voices to be understood over distances of 15 metres or more. In the Logison Acoustic network sound masking system, each primary hub is connected directly to a loud speaker and can be connected to one or two additional speakers via secondary hubs to cover a zone of 20 to 60 square metres.
