Since 1994 the company's specialty is ergonomic tailor-made lift systems for tough work environments that demand lifting aids for repetitive handling.
Unique baggage lifting products
Our unique baggage lifting products consists of the vacuum lift Basic and the unique lifting tables Container Loading System (CLS) and Container Unloading System (CUS). All of them are adaptable to existing environments and fulfill the requirements of speed, durability, ergonomics and energy consumption. The CLS and the CUS have been developed by Lifts All AHS to load and unload bags and cargo into and out of containers.
Baggage lifts since 2000
Our first own-developed baggage lift was produced in the year 2000. The real start for Lifts All Airport Handling Solutions came with the development of a new baggage lift in 2007, the BHV, in conjunction with Amsterdam Schiphol Airport. Two years later, 60 BHVs were delivered, followed by more.
Together with Schiphol Airport we also later developed the lifting tables CLS and CUS. We are proud to add Stockholm-Bromma Airport, Helsinki-Vantaa, Copenhagen, Dublin and London Heathrow as customers. Lifts All AHS work closely with Stockholm-Arlanda on new developments.
Lifting aids to improve physical health
Lifting, carrying, pushing and pulling on a repetitive basis have always caused harm to workers in the transport and logistics sector, especially for baggage handlers.
According to the Swedish Labour Department and its AFS 1998:1, which applies to the EU directives, all lifts by hand weighing more than 15kg / 33lbs shall be avoided, but they also address a warning for weights more than 3kg / 6.6lbs under certain circumstances. Such circumstances are lifting awkward objects that are lifted with a bent or twisted back, or with hands below knee height or raised above shoulders, which are familiar circumstances for many baggage handlers.
The European Council's directive 90 / 269 / EEG states that if the demand of manual loading cannot be avoided, the employer shall create organizational changes or make sure that the employees have such lifting aids to his or her disposal, that the risks with manual loading are reduced. This has not always been easy in the field of baggage handling and especially not for container loading. There simply haven't been any good ergonomic lifting aids available. Until now!
