Secondary Guarding Device Booms

Summit Platforms offers an electronic secondary guarding device on all boom type MEWPs. Our devices are approved by the equipment manufacturers. They consist of a sensitive edge situated in front of the controls. When an entrapment situation is detected the sensitive edge acts as an emergency stop, preventing further entrapment from occurring. It also has an alarm and flashing beacon to attract the attention of colleagues on the ground who can enact the emergency lowering procedure.


Secondary Guarding Scissors

Summit Platforms can provide a secondary guarding and lift enable function for scissor lifts and vertical mast lifts. The system consists of a robust control box shroud providing additional guarding of controls, reducing the risk of unintended actuation and a secondary anti-tamper enable button located on the side of the control box. A two handed operation is required to lift, maintaining the operator’s body in an upright position and away from the handrails, mitigating the risk of entrapment. Both joystick and secondary enable bottom must be activated to allow the platform to lift; release of either will stop the function immediately.

Harness On 

Harness ON™ is an intelligent anchor point that stops the MEWP’s operation until the operator attaches their harness carabiner. Harness ON™ is permanently shackled to the MEWPs anchor point and wired electronically into the MEWP’s function controls. This device meets EU and ANSI safety standards and is compatible with all machines.

On Board Generator

All diesel booms and all diesel scissors over 40ft are available with power to platform via an on-board generator. These powerful generators removes the need to hire a separate generator and have cables trailing from the work area to the ground.


Tyre Covers

If you are working on finished floors, indoors or outdoors, wheel covers are ideal for protecting the surface from black marks caused by the tyres of a machine. Tyre covers can be purchased and supplied with your hire machine and are very useful when non-marking tyres are not an option. Our wheel covers are simple to fit and reusable


Diesel Particulate Filter

Diesel particulate filters can be fitted to the majority of diesel booms and scissors. These filters significantly remove carbon monoxide, hydrocarbons and exhaust irritants. Ideal for when diesel machines are required to work in confined or indoor applications.
