SGLE

Skyjack has introduced its solution to secondary guarding for scissors and vertical mast lifts.

The launch of the Secondary Guarding Lift Enable (SGLE) system comes from growing interest in secondary guarding for scissors and mast lifts, said the manufacturer. “Industry groups have recently suggested possible circumstances, conditions, and operations that might result in inadvertent contact with obstructions and consequently an entrapment hazard. As a result, a form of secondary guarding is now being requested on scissor lifts and vertical mast lifts by some equipment users. So, we introduced SGLE.”

The SGLE has a robust control box shroud provides additional guarding of controls; reducing the risk of unintended actuation. A secondary anti-tamper enable button located on the side of the control box. Two-handed operation is required to lift, maintaining the operator’s body in an upright position and away from the railings; mitigating the risk of entrapmen

Both joystick and secondary enables must be activated to allow the platform to lift; release of either will stop the function immediately. The secondary enable button is n ot used for lowering the platform or for driving; those functions are joystick enable only.

SGLE is suitable for all Skyjack scissor lift and vertical mast lift models, and is available as a direct factory install or aftermarket accessory.
