SkyGuard™ provides enhanced control panel protection for boom lifts. When activated by about 50 pounds of force, a sensor stops all functions. It reverses functionality, then undoes most functions in use at the time of the sensor activation. In situations where extreme force is exerted, the sensor bar breaks away to provide additional space for the operator. A horn and optional blue flashing beacon simultaneously alert other workers to sensor activation. The unit does not limit platform workspace or the capacity of the boom lift or disrupt operator visibility.
