Aerial Lift Safety
When accessing heights, boom lifts are invaluable. They provide a safe and efficient way to reach tall structures and hard-to-reach places and complete tasks that would otherwise be impossible or incredibly dangerous.
In the height access industry, aerial lift safety is paramount, and that's why Alpha Platforms is committed to providing the safest and most reliable height access service in the market.

Truck-Mounted Aerial Lifts Are The Safest Type Of Lift
When aerial lift outriggers are deployed, the lift is only operational when leveled. The operator cannot operate a lift unless it’s fully immobilized, properly set up, and leveled.
This safety feature ensures that the lift remains stable and secure during use, minimizing the risk of accidents due to equipment instability or tipping.
All self-propelled lifts like Genie and JLG can drive while elevated, dangerously increasing risk and safety concerns. Every inch of elevation differences on the ground corresponds to the elevated cage swinging a few feet. The result is property damage and accidents.
Also, driving while elevated means that you cannot fully control ground stability.
Unlike cranes that depend entirely on human decisions for safe operations, Alpha Platforms' aerial lifts’ work envelopes and weight limits are pre-programmed by the manufacturer. The aerial lift computer takes readings from every sensor (including outrigger setup, cage load, wind factor, etc.) and compares them with pre-programmed readings for a safe work envelope.
Lifts are pre-programmed for every outrigger setup position, every possible weight in the cage, boom angles, and extension limits.
When the pre-set max reading is reached, a smart machine will simply stop moving and only allow the operator reverse movements to decrease its outreach.
Alpha Platforms aerial lift safety is further enhanced by its dual-computer system. That means two computers receive sensor data simultaneously and compare received readings. If both computers show the same reading, the action is permitted. If there is any discrepancy between the two sensor readings – the system freezes further movements and restricts the operator to movements back to safety.
If two built-in computers have different readings, the machine freezes, providing additional protection in the unlikely case of an electronic malfunction.
