United Forklift and Access Solutions introduces Haulotte’s unique ACTIV’Shield entrapment prevention system
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.
