Shenxi's mast climbing work platform meets the American’s ANSI standards. The new standard aims to improve and enhance safety equipment standards to make them similar to international standards. This creates more competition in the global market when providing services to companies and equipment manufacturers.
The following Standard contains provisions which, through reference in this text, constitute provisions of the Guideline. For dated references, subsequent amendments to, or revisions of, any of these publications do not apply. For undated references, the latest edition of the publication referred to applies.
