Lifting tables


Neo has invested in 8 hydraulic scissor lifts with a lifting capacity of 1000 kg and a maximum lifting height of 2.55 meters.  

With these lifts the range of motions that Neo offers is expanded and the sheer number of lifts makes many possible applications and combinations in your show or event imaginable.

The tables will be centrally controlled and furthermore some practical adaptations will be made, so that the elements can be incorporated into existing podium (flooring) systems and can be more easily transported and (re)arranged.
