United Fork­lift and Ac­cess So­lu­tions is in­tro­duc­ing to Aus­tralia the AC­TIV’Shield Bar En­trap­ment Preven­tion Sys­tem of one of the world’s lead­ing man­u­fac­tur­ers of pow­ered ac­cess equip­ment, Haulotte Group.

United – an au­tho­rised Aus­tralian dis­trib­u­tor of Haulotte equip­ment – says the unique sys­tem af­firms United and Haulotte’s com­mit­ment to lead­er­ship in work­ing at height safety, while also sub­stan­tially ad­vanc­ing in­dus­try stan­dards for pro­tec­tion against over­head crush­ing.

AC­TIV’Shield Bar in­cor­po­rates an alert that warns the op­er­a­tor to po­ten­tial en­trap­ment sit­u­a­tions and is unique in that it fea­tures a Safety Gap which pre­vents full en­trap­ment in such sit­u­a­tions. This al­lows the op­er­a­tor to re­move him­self out of dan­ger, says United’s Mr An­drew Mac­don­ald.

AC­TIV’Shield Bar is avail­able on all new Haulotte booms, with a retro kit also avail­able that can be fit­ted to older Haulotte booms from 2008 on­wards. It is widely ap­pli­ca­ble to in­dus­tries such as con­struc­tion, civil en­gi­neer­ing, main­te­nance and in­stal­la­tion en­gi­neer­ing, lo­cal gov­ern­ment and mu­nic­i­pal works, in­clud­ing light­ing and tree main­te­nance, min­ing, energy, oil and gas, in­fra­struc­ture, lo­gis­tics, man­u­fac­tur­ing, bulk ma­te­ri­als han­dling, elec­tri­cal in­stal­la­tion and main­te­nance, safety and trans­port and ware­hous­ing.
