Haulotte launches the Activ’Shield Bar : Entrapment Prevention System
In order to significantly reduce the number of accidents when using platforms in confined spaces, Haulotte Groupe decided to introduce a new system called “Activ’Shield Bar”. This innovative system is designed to prevent entrapment risks and allows the operator to work safely, by preserving the productivity and machine’s working envelope.
Activ’Shield Bar, a system designed for a better operator’s safety
The new protection system launched by Haulotte didn’t come out of nowhere. Indeed, based on the “Strategic Forum for Construction Plant Safety Group” report. This English committee analyses accidentology and ensures safety. Its role covers handling equipments. Haulotte wants to take on this mission with their new entrapment prevention system.
How the Activ’Shield Bar by Haulotte works
The way the “Activ’ Shield Bar” works is simple : this system informs the operator when there is a risk of entrapment. Thanks to the removable bar, that features a Safety Gap, the operator is protected from full entrapment. Finally, the Activ’Shield will be available in Europe in mid 2014 on all the diesel aerial platforms from Haulotte.
