Fall Arrest Platforms
Ground Support Aftermarket Parts
When your work requires that you exit the platform, JLG helps keep you safe and mobile with our Fall Arrest Platforms. Using a cable system that allows the operator to leave the platform and move freely without detaching the safety harness, he or she can remain tethered to the platform at all times. The operator can move a full 270 degrees around and 6 ft beyond the platform, giving the operator versatility without compromising safety. The Fall Arrest Platform is available for a variety of boom lift applications, including aviation and steel erection.
