The advent of ever-more capable specialty lifts and aerial work platforms is changing the face of construction and facility maintenance. These lifts allow for expansive atriums and excessively high ceilings in office buildings, industrial spaces, and warehouses. While the lifts are important during construction, they also create ongoing needs for post-construction applications.

Our lifts are now used across many industries to provide access for:

  • Changing and maintenance of lighting and fire safety systems
  • Updates and maintenance in entertainment venues and stadiums
  • Periodic maintenance and cleaning of spaces and windows
  • Installing and maintaining signage
  • Multiple specialized applications requiring access to high and difficult-to-access spaces

We are nationally known for our ability to tackle even the most difficult jobs, and we have teams that have satisfied hundreds of demanding clients on thousands of projects.

Our unique approach of melding these specialty lifts with highly trained, certified and experienced operators provides clients with a cost-efficient turnkey solution to any high access application. Our solutions limit their on-site liabilities and ensure their projects are completed on time and on budget.

We started High Access Solutions in 2007, just at the beginning of the economic meltdown here in the United States. 

Our unique offering allowed us to launch successfully and we have shown consistent growth since that time. 

As we have participated in this market growth, we have added a variety of lifts and gained experience with more than 2,000 successful projects completed. This makes our capabilities unequaled in the industry and allows us to tackle jobs others can’t even consider. 

The industry has now come to expect the use of specialty lifts in many different facilities and applications. As this demand continues to grow, HAS is positioned to expand our offerings on a regional base while laying the groundwork for a national expansion.
