Machine Accessories & Safety

We have a range of secondary guarding options available for MEWPs in our hire fleet. From sensors, that when activated, stop all functions in use at the time, to systems that alert the operator to potential crushing, our secondary guarding systems are all manufactured with the operator's safety in mind.

Harnesses & Lanyards

harnessesThe HSE, IPAF and AFI recommend that a full body harness with an adjustable restraint lanyard is used and correctly attached when working from a boom type platform.The HSE, IPAF and AFI recommend that a full body harness with an adjustable restraint lanyard is used and correctly attached when working from a boom type platform.

Developed for maximum comfort and manoeuvrability specifically for use in access equipment. Our harness and adjustable restraint lanyards are easy to fit and complies with all current legislation.

The full body harness can carry a max weight of 136kg and is accredited to EN:361. Our 1.5m adjustable restraint lanyard are accredited to EN:354. The lanyards are not sold individually, only sold with a harness.

Paint Protection

paint protectionBarrier wax can be applied to safeguard machines against paint damage.

The machine can be covered in a barrier wax film to protect against light overspray.

Protecting your machine with a protective wax prior to delivery can save you costly overspray charges.

Under normal conditions the coat lasts for up to two weeks.

Wheel Covers

When non-marking tyres are not an option, wheel covers are ideal for indoor use when you need to protect the floor surface from unsightly black marks caused by the tyres of a machine.


  • They are universal and can be used on any size of tyre in our MEWP fleet.
  • Simple three stage process to fit to the tyres.
  • Can be reused multiple times.

nappiesNappies help to protect your working areas from oil deposits should your machine develop a leak.

Positioned under the machine, nappies help to protect the working area, keeping it clean and free from oil deposits.


  • Vehicle nappies can be manufactured to customer’s specification or can be supplied as a standard size.
  • Made from durable PVC which can be washed down after use and re-used again.
Onboard Power to Platform

Many diesel MEWPs come with an onboard generator, removing the risk of trailing cables being scattered across the work floor or hanging from the platform, and the need to hire a separate generator.

The generator can be switched on or isolated on the control panel in the basket as required.


An inverter converts DC power to AC Power: This allows a permanent flow of 110v power through a plug located in the basket allowing the operator a constant stream of power without the trailing cables.

The power source is active at all time.

Chalwyn Valves / Shut Off Valves

The valve is designed to safely detect and shut down the engine in the event of external hazardous fumes, vapours or gases being drawn into the engine through the airflow intake.

These devices are normally mandatory for any diesel powered machine working in petrochemical environments.



Material Handling

Board carriers The board carrier is designed to maximize productivity. The board carrier is designed specifically for applications that require holding and lifting sheet materials.

It is a safe and simple solution, making lifting material easier, less strenuous and quicker while leaving the platform free for tools, other light material and personnel.


 Max sheet size: 15mm x 1.2m x 2.5m  Max workload weight: 45kg
