White shirt sponsor - UK powered access rental company, Star Platforms, were happy to help over the summer when they provided a 28m Niftylift Height Rider Diesel (HR28D) articulated boom lift to the Club.
Their support was a big help to our stadium team, so they could carry out work in the run up to the Championship season, enabling us to comply certain League regulations that apply in the Championship.
This included the installation of new floodlights in the ground.
Peter Kemp, Stadium Manager, Luton Town Football Club, said:
“The whole Club worked hard getting the stadium and team ready for kick off into the Championship. We had to make several updates to the club and the Niftylift cherry picker makes accessing those hard to reach area’s in the corners of the stadium to update the floodlights so much easier.”
The Niftylift HR28D provides a solid machine when the operator needs to reach up high and complete work with precision, and is agile enough to move to different locations when required. The machine allowed the operator to navigate the obstacles and get close enough to the lights to complete the task safely and securely.
Steve Simmons, Managing Director, Star Platforms said: “As fans ourselves we are looking forward to this season in the Championship and only too happy to help with powered access when the Club need it. Kenilworth Road is a stadium full of character with lots of quirks and corners to fit round and the Niftylift HR28D does a fantastic job of getting the operator where they need to be quickly and safely”.
Our thanks to the Star Platforms team for their support over the summer.
