Genie Introduces Fall Arrest Bar for Exiting a Boom Lift Platform

Genie announces the Fall Arrest Bar safety accessory, which allows a user to exit the platform and work comfortably around the outside of the platform with a 6-ft lanyard. It attaches to a 6- or 8-ft platform on all Genie telescopic and articulating boom lifts with lift heights higher than 40 ft., with the exception of the S-125HD model.

A smooth, sliding, horizontal track design allows the operator to tie off and move freely outside the platform using a 6 ft shock-absorbing lanyard. The enclosed track, made from high strength steel, protects the trolley from weather and debris. The yellow, identifiable bar attaches quickly and easily, within 15 minutes, for fast setup and removal.

“Many boom operators have unusual access requirements; for example in the aviation industry while working on the wings of airplanes, or in amusement parks,” said Christine Zeznick, boom associate product manager, Terex AWP. “The Fall Arrest Bar accessory provides that extra safety enhancement for exiting the platform.”

The Genie Fall Arrest Bar option complies with ANSI A92.5-2006 and CSA B354.4-02 standards for self-propelled booms. The CE certification of the Genie Fall Arrest Solution is currently being evaluated. This part is now available and may be ordered through www.gogenielift.com.
