Podium Platforms vs AlphaDeck™ – Which one is right for you?

30th August 2023

At Pop Up Products, we believe in providing our customers with the very best equipment to be able to get on with the job in hand, in a safe and easy way.

We have been working on our latest product, the AlphaDeck, for some time – making sure we are completely happy and certain that our customers will love it as much as we do!

What is the AlphaDeck?

The AlphaDeck is a platform step designed with safety in mind. It offers all-round guardrail protection with a saloon-bar gate style entry. It has an extra-large working platform to allow you to work comfortably with both hands free, making the AlphaDeck ideal for any working environment from home to construction sites.

Who is the AlphaDeck designed for?

A traditional podium platform is used in all building environments, which brings challenges on sites with the space needed and the weight of the products.

However, if you are wanting something a little more versatile and able to be carried around to various different work sites, the AlphaDeck is the option for you!

We have aimed this working platform for trades that need to work at height with a large working platform and tool tray to free up both of your hands for working. Electricians, painters and decorators, plumbers and joiners are just a few of the trades we think would absolutely love the AlphaDeck!

What are the benefits of the AlphaDeck compared to a Podium Platform?

Smaller Footprint – The AlphaDeck stabiliser footprint is much smaller than many traditional podium platforms and ladders. This compact design means it is easier to fit in many more everyday working environments, without compromising on stability.

Value For Money – The AlphaDeck is height adjustable, compared to most podium towers, meaning you have many different height options in one single product. Podium towers often are at a set height, so if you need to work at a shorter or higher height than this, you need to purchase another product that is suitable.

Easy to Transport – The lightweight, foldable design of the AlphaDeck means you can transport it easily in most work vans, enabling you to use it on the go. Podium Platforms are large solid structures, which makes access in and around working environments very difficult.

Weight and Space Saving – Weight capacity and space on site is of great value. The AlphaDeck design takes this into consideration with our lightweight and compact design. An average podium platform weighs 39kg, but the AlphaDeck weighs just 28kg for the equivalent working height. This saves over 28% weight capacity, with a significantly smaller footprint too.

Key Features of the AlphaDeck:

  • Quick and Safe Assembly
  • Strong, stable and robust
  • Compact Footprint
  • Easy to move
