The covering of the Holy Kaaba in Mecca is considered one of the most important aspects of care, interest and glorification of the Sacred House. Even today in Mecca this ancient ritual is being practiced with full enthusiasm. The holy Kaaba is covered with new Kiswa (cover) every year on the 10th Dhul Hijjah, which coincides with Hajj. And this year again this monumental task of changing the Kiswa has been completed by using HAULOTTE ELECTRIC SCISSORS.
Roots Group Arabia (RGA), our dealer in KSA, has been supplying a significant number of HAULOTTE ELECTRIC aerial work platforms especially to perform this traditional task.
The Haulotte Compact 14 model is the most popular in this project as it is perfectly suitable thanks to its optimal 350 kg lifting capacity , its ability to be driven at full height (14 meters) and its solid nonmarking tires which will not damage the floor. Haulotte safety expertise is clear in this product through the potholes protection which will automatically go down (starting from 3 m platform height) and two direction tilt sensor for safer slope control. Haulotte Group takes pride in putting its technology at disposal of the maintenance and preservation of sites with such cultural importance.
