A range of tools to restrict the working height of excavators, backhoes, telehandlers, cranes, forklifts and other machinery requiring height limitation.
When operating in a confined space or operating under site mandate you should fit height limiting equipment to your plant machinery. All lifting and articulating equipment will benefit from a height limiter and can be retrofitted to detect and prevent movement towards or through a pre-determined height limit. Options such as simple switches and even chains are offered as height limiters but these are, at best, poor substitutes for a proper height limiting system that takes account of the machine’s full range of movement.
Fitting a height limiter to your machines demonstrates a standard of safety across your operations. Choosing a height limiter is a complex task and multiple factors need to be considered to ensure the system used suitable for the applications required.
James Fisher Prolec's height limiting systems:
James Fisher Prolec offers multiple options, all of which provide robust compliance and allowing you to operate in confidence across a range of environments.
Like our lifting safety products, our height limiting systems are based on the 'Pro' safety platform which offers many benefits to the user, including; variable parameter height limits, controls on who can set the limits, full range of movement within the machine’s working envelope, multiple options for measuring angle and movement of the machine’s boom, as well as traceability and compliance with code requirements in mandated industries.
