#1. Design Features
The Lift Table Enclosure can be customized depending on how many sides your lift table has. Single or multi-sided lift tables are common, we can customize your Lift Table Enclosure based on your needs.
Premium Quality Material
Our vinyl coated polyester is produced at premium quality, ensuring product longevity. The rigid interior plastic frames are welded into the vinyl coated polyester to ensure stability and rigidity versus conventional style lift table skirts. The material is welded together to ensure uniformity and superior efficiency. Additionally, a mesh breathing fabric or ventilation holes are implemented into opposite sides to prevent the bellowing of the Lift Table Enclosure to ensure straight tracking and proper functionality.
#2. Additional Options
When performing maintenance, our Lift Table Enclosure maintenance straps allow for ease of access to the underside of the lift table. The maintenance straps holds the lift table enclosure tight to the underside of the table allowing free & clear access for your maintenance crew.
Including zippers in a Lift Table Enclosure are manufactured for retrofits. This is common for when a Lift Table Enclosure may not be easily implemented over a scissor lift table.

Choosing a Lift Table Enclosure color is available when designing your Lift Table Enclosure. Standard colors are less expensive but we will customize your Lift Table Enclosure to meet your company needs and uphold safety and brand integrity.
#3. Material Preference
Lift Table Enclosures are standard vinyl bellows in a typical situation. A vinyl material will most likely meet the needs of your application. Vinyl Lift Table Enclosure performance is undoubted and will increase the longevity of your scissor lift while maintaining quality and efficiency. Although, there are situations where our clients’ environment requires different materials. In that case, Kevlar or a chain mesh is the best alternative to vinyl. These materials perform well in high-temperature situations and are highly flexible.
#4. Mounting Selection
We offer several types of mounting options – a velcro attachment and a flat bar mount. The size of a scissor lift table is what ultimately decides on the requirement of the mounting selection. Velcro is a highly economical mounting option and is common in Lift Table Enclosures. Although, velcro is not recommended for large scissor lift tables. For larger scissor lift tables, the flat bar mount is highly recommended, as it’s bolted onto the lift. Large Lift Table Enclosures are heavier and rip away from the velcro adhesive, hence why we recommend a more robust implementation.
