Accordion Skirts have a functional purpose as well as a
safety purpose. Skirts comply with the OSHA pinch point specifications. The
functional advantage is minimizing dirt and debris accumulation under the
platform. Dirt can contaminate electrical and hydraulic components. Life
expectancy of both can be substantially reduced by this contamination.
Debris such as raw materials, boards, or pallets can restrict the scissor or
table movement. Accordion skirts serve to keep debris from damaging
the operating mechanism, hydraulic components, or electrical parts. Safety
is enhanced by keeping arms, legs, fingers, and toes out from under the
table. Skirts meet NFPA 701 code. Standard electric toe-guards are not
included when scissor table is fitted with accordion skirt option.
