United Gulf Access is providing a wide range of Haulotte boom and scissor lifts for façade and interior work on the expansion project at the King Abdulaziz International Airport in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

One of the models being used is the H43TPX, a rough-terrain telescopic boom lift ideal for horizontal outreach, while the other is the HA41PX, an articulated boom lift for applications where up-and-over reach characteristics are required.

Both the machines are diesel powered, and the articulated HA41PX also has a turntable that allows for continuous 360° rotation – making it a versatile tool for reaching a range of hard-to-reach work areas from a single static location.

The HA260PX articulated boom lift is also being used to support the construction of the bridges connecting to the airport’s railway station, which will help transport religious tourists to Makkah and Madinah.

The H18SX and H15SX electric scissor lifts are being used for interior work — selected for their 4WD functionality and hydraulic differential lock, which greatly improve traction on all surfaces.

The heavy-duty Compact 8 scissor lift is meanwhile being used for the installation of electrics, fire sprinklers, false ceiling components and other interior design elements.

Haulotte’s products are distributed in Saudi Arabia through United Gulf Equipment Rentals, with whom Haulotte has a 10-year working relationship, and Roots Group Arabia.

King Abdul-Aziz International Airport is being expanded by KSA’s General Authority of Civil Aviation to increase the airport’s yearly capacity from 13 million to 80 million passengers, and is scheduled for completion in 2018.
