Integrated Sonic Detection System

In an effort to combat risks of overhead crushing or entrapment injuries when using scissor lifts, Mainline has integrated a sonic detection system, within slab scissors, that alerts operators to the proximity of overhead obstructions.

Whilst this does not remove the need for operator vigilance, it provides an enhanced level of protection.

Our short video provides an insight into this simple, yet effective, system that provides both audible warnings and a safety cut-out when encountering overhead obstructions.
