RICHFIELD, WI – Hy-Brid Lifts, a brand of Custom Equipment LLC, announced that its products are certified to meet or exceed U.S. and Canadian standards to provide the highest level of safety and comfort for customers. Both standards – ANSI A92.20 and CSA B354.6 – are the baseline from which Hy-Brid Lifts engineers each lift model.
The CSA Group (formerly the Canadian Standards Association) determines the best practices for safe, reliable operation of access equipment in Canada. Just as ANSI does for U.S. customers, the standards provide a consistent benchmark for safe machine design.
“While the Canadian standards are very similar to the U.S. standards, it is important for us to note this achievement,” said Terry Dolan, Hy-Brid Lifts President and CEO. “Canadian customers can buy confidently, knowing the product was certified through standards set forth by a Canadian governing body.”
A professional engineer oversaw the CSA testing onsite at Hy-Brid Lifts’ facility. After rigorous testing, a Canadian professional engineer reviewed the technical documentation to certify the lifts.
“All Hy-Brid Lifts are designed with safety and efficiency in mind, and this testing solidifies our position in the industry,” said Ben Froland, Hy-Brid Lifts Vice President of Engineering. “All models passed the requirements with only a few slight adjustments. Besides that, we documented the performance of the lifts to ensure they meet the standards.”
