JLG – SKYGUARD
Boom lift operators experience enhanced control panel protection with this aftermarket accessory. When activated by approximately 23 kg (50 lb) of force, SkyGuard stops all functions in use at the time.
The reverse functionality of SkyGuard is the only feature of its kind in the market. After stopping the machine, it temporarily reverses, or momentarily “undoes” most functions that were in use at the time of activation for less than a second.
Can be activated from a variety of angles
Provides additional protection without impeding or reducing the work envelope of the boom lift
With no movable parts, there’s no need for scheduled or additional maintenance
Breakaway feature for extreme conditions
Resets by cycling foot switch or e-stop
Does not increase the platform profile or limit the use of the platform
NIFTYLIFT – SiOPS – Sustained Involuntary Operation Prevention System
Mobile Elevating Work Platforms offer a safe and efficient way to work at height. Occasionally however, operators can become trapped between the machine and surrounding objects forcing their torso onto the controls. In extreme cases, this can result in sustained involuntary operation of the machine’s controls which can inadvertently move the machine and operator towards the obstacle, worsening the injuries caused.
SiOPS® eliminates sustained involuntary operation by instantly interrupting all machine movement if an operator is pushed against the cage controls and addresses a known contributing factor in trapping incidents and gives the operator a vital second chance.
