JLG Industries is offering a new system that bolts on to existing JLG aerial work platforms in the field. The feature allows an occupant to exit the platform at height and step onto adjacent structures while being tied off to an approved lanyard anchor point on the platform.
The Bolt-On Fall Arrest System consists of two large steel brackets securing a 6-foot cable with a ring that can move from one end of the cable to the other. Attaching the lanyard to the ring improves maneuverability and allows the operator to perform tasks outside of the platform.
The External Bolt-On Fall Arrest System meets both ANSI A92.5 and CSA B354.4-02 standards and can be installed by a qualified service representative to any 36x72-inch or 36x96-inch platform mounted to a JLG boom lift.
The system is portable and can be moved from one platform to another, does not require a specially reinforced platform and does not de-rate platform capacity. Fall Arrest solutions are available on all new JLG boom lifts and as an aftermarket accessory through JLG parts.
