Take a peek at the new-look Horizon website
By Rory Duggan, Sales Director
I’m delighted to announce the launch of the new Horizon Platforms website. Please take a look around and discover some of the new features which we hope make the site as easy and enjoyable to use as possible.
Discover our extensive product information including videos and manufacturers’ guides; stay up to date with the latest Horizon developments and powered access industry news in our Knowledge Centre; use live chat to talk direct to an industry expert or share products and pages that interest you with others across Facebook, Twitter and Google+.
Here are a dozen reasons why we’re excited to launch our new and improved site:
Fresh content and a great new look >
We hope you like the look and feel of the new site. As well as reflecting everything that’s approachable and engaging about Horizon, the site has been designed to ensure you can navigate your way around quickly and easily, and find fresh content that is both relevant and helpful.
A single site for a seamless service >
As well as a new look, you’ll see that we’ve consolidated three previously separate sites into one, offering visitors a one-stop-shop for all their powered access needs with hire, sales and training now under one roof.
Available on all mobile devices >
The website has been designed using the latest technology so the site is fully compatible with today’s browsers and mobile devices. You’ll be able to view a perfectly scaled down version of the Horizon website, regardless of which mobile phone or tablet you’re using.
Live chat facility >
If you’re struggling to find what you need – or just prefer to get advice direct from a human – try our new live chat facility. You’ll deal with an experienced industry expert who understands your issues and can offer an immediate response to your queries.
Platform finder facility >
Platform Advisor offers a step-by-step guide to finding the ideal work at height platform for your particular job. Select a range of options based on direction, environment and ground surface conditions, then let Platform Advisor recommend the most suitable machine for you.
Extensive product profiles for each platform >
User-friendly product profiles are available on our full range of models. A combination of technical specifications, videos and manufacturers’ user guides work together to provide a comprehensive overview of each platform available to hire or buy from Horizon.
More training courses available to book online >

Industry-specific requirements >
Get to grips with the new industry-specific access platform section of the website. It enables customers to browse based on the needs of their specific industry sector – from warehousing and construction to manufacturing and engineering.
Extended range of used platforms for sale >
Browse our extended range of quality new and used access platforms to buy. Our sales professionals can talk you through a choice of models from leading manufacturers and discuss the range of finance options available to help with your purchase.
More comprehensive careers section >

Our cross-hire service allows you to hire quality access platforms anywhere in the UK thanks to our national network of trusted suppliers. We’ll find you the machines you need and take care of all the hire arrangements and paperwork on your behalf.
In the next few weeks we’ll be sending you details of another exciting development: the launch of our very own App which will give you on-the-go access to Horizon on your smart phone, even in areas with poor mobile reception. In the meantime, enjoy browsing. We hope you like what you see.
