JLG RELEASES SKYGUARD SKY­LINE CON­TROL PANEL PRO­TEC­TION SYS­TEM AS NEW STAN­DARD FOR BOOM LIFTS IN EMEA

PMV Middle East - - PEAK PERFORMANCE -

JLG In­dus­tries has re­leased Skyguard Sky­line con­trol panel pro­tec­tion sys­tem as the new stan­dard for boom lifts in Europe, Mid­dle East, Africa, In­dia and Rus­sia. The safety up­grade is the re­sult of cus­tomer feed­back stem­ming from the re­lease of Skyguard in 2012.

Skyguard Sky­line fea­tures a slim wire rope de­sign that is bolted to the left side the plat­form with an op­pos­ing mag­netic con­nec­tion.

If the op­er­a­tor con­tacts the ca­ble, and the mag­net de­taches, the sys­tem stops all boom lift func­tions, then mo­men­tar­ily re­verses or un­does most func­tions that were in use when the sys­tem was ac­ti­vated. This re­verse func­tion­al­ity was pi­o­neered by JLG in 2012.

From Novem­ber 2018 through early 2019, Skyguard Sky­line will be phased into most boom lift mod­els as a stan­dard fea­ture, how­ever, in­ter­ested cus­tomers will have the op­tion to pur­chase the orig­i­nal bar style Skyguard sys­tem.

Jan-willem van Wier, se­nior prod­uct mar­ket­ing man­ager,

JLG EMEA, said: “This en­hanced safety fea­ture is an­other step for­ward for JLG as we con­tinue to in­no­vate to meet the chang­ing needs of the ac­cess in­dus­try needs. The cus­tomer and en­duser feed­back on the orig­i­nal Skyguard sys­tem was very pos­i­tive, and this new fea­ture is a nat­u­ral evo­lu­tion of the tech­nol­ogy.”
