Delta Deck/Delta Deck Hire
For those needing flexibility when working, Delta decks offer more than just a safe working load.
Accessing hard-to-reach places with ease for up to heights of 3m is one of the many benefits to help keep your workers safe and worry-free.
If you’re unsure whether Delta Decks are the right option for you, we’re more than happy to help you decide!
Who Should Use a Delta Deck Work Platform?
Ideal for Those Needing Flexibility When Working at Heights
A significant advantage of using Delta Decks is adjusting the platform height – 2.45m, 2.53m, 2.6m, 2.73m, or 2.887m – above floor level.
So if you need a safe platform that gives you an adjustable working height to reach certain heights, then you’ve just found a height solution to all your problems.
If You’re Looking for Simple to Assemble Equipment for Easy Transportation and Storage
Delta Deck is a one-piece assembly system, so this not only means a more straightforward assemble and dismantle process, but you also don’t have to keep scratching your head wondering if you lost a piece.
We’d say it’s dummy-proof (not that you are one) and ensures workers and users all-around. It saves you the hassle and trouble of worrying about loose parts.
Not to mention, its compact dimensions allow you to fit it at the back of your car or small van. That’s no-hassle storage for you!
The Working Height for Completing Certain Jobs Is 3m or Below
A 3m platform height might seem like it’s too low to work with, but painters, decorators, dryliners, joiners, and ceiling fixers will find this to be an ideal piece of equipment to use.
Ideal for Those Needing a Full Guardrail System to Guarantee User Safety
It’s essential to consider all of the various platform heights one will be performing tasks on.
User safety, of course, is the primary concern here, so while the working heights available for a Delta Deck only grant low-level access up to 3m, you can’t go wrong with a full guardrail system.
Thanks to the guardrail system, you’re ensured a stable & safe work platform in varying working heights.
Those Looking for Safe Low-Level Access at Different Platform Heights
It’s easy to access and egress either end of the platform, which minimises any slips and falls on-site.
Not all hire equipment allows you to egress or access either end of the platform with ease.
Without a proper or safe entry and exit route when using equipment, this could lead to slips, falls, and trips that can cause serious injury, especially in hazardous or dangerous areas.
That’s why a Delta Deck was designed primarily with easy access and egress points so that workers can accomplish a wide range of tasks safely and efficiently should the job at hand require constant moving from one location to another.
Delta Deck Safety Tips
Just because a Delta Deck only grants low-level access, and even with a full guardrail system, doesn’t mean using one gives you total blanket assurance.
Remember: the unit or equipment you use is only as safe as the person in charge of maintaining it.
In other words, if you don’t take good care of the unit in use or if you stray from proper safety protocols, well, you don’t want to wait for something terrible to happen.
With that in mind, here are a few safety tips to remember when using a Delta Deck:
- High-quality or not, it’s not advisable to work in extreme weather conditions. Don’t take its “low-level access features” for granted. Compact dimensions may be great for portability or transportation & storage, but against strong winds, it’s not worth taking the risk of an injury. Simply put, they’re stable but not a match for Grade-6 winds.
- Always position the Delta Deck on a flat & firm surface. Working at a height of 3m is equivalent to one story [R], so if you land the wrong way, it won’t end well.
- Before using a Delta Deck the first time, perform a risk assessment first. Although the Delta Deck is one complete system, learning how to operate and use it is part of the safety protocol.
- Always conduct regular safety checks. As mentioned earlier, a Delta Deck may be one complete assembly system, but it is still susceptible to damage or wear and tear after extended use.
- Bear in mind the safe working load, as stated in the instruction manual. The safe working load and dimensions should inform you of how much weight a particular piece of equipment is capable of handling. Put simply, don’t go above the maximum load.
Where Can I Use a Delta Deck?
A Delta Deck is suitable for use in the following environments:
- Healthcare facilities
- Shopping centres

Generally, Delta Decks are a great alternative if you need to perform a one-off job or any place that requires an easy low-access solution.
