Genie Lift Guard Contact Alarm

REDMOND, Wash. – As part of OSHA’s National Safety Stand-Down Week from May 7-11, Genie revealed a prototype of the Lift Guard Contact Alarm system for Genie GS slab scissor lifts and Genie GR, GRC, and QS vertical masts.

The system is an electronic secondary guarding solution designed to activate when an obstruction makes contact with an activation whisker mounted to the lift’s platform guardrails, alerting operators, occupants, and ground personnel to a potential hazard.

The popularity for low-level access lifts continues to be on an upward trend, with growth in new construction, renovation, maintenance, and industrial applications is driving the demand.
Skyjack’s SJ12 represented the company’s low-level mast lifts at the Lift and Access Showcase, which took place in October 2014 in Las Vegas, Nev. It offers 12-ft. platform height, 500-lb. platform capacity, compact design, 0° turning radius, and Skyjack’s signature relay-based controls.
