Stairway to Heaven - Bespoke Bronto Units Boost Height Access Options

08 November 2013 | Updated 01 January 1970

Ten new, highly specificied Bronto truck mounted platforms have entered Nationwide Platforms’ fleet as part of the access firm’s investment programme. The investment includes seven 38m units, two 50m platforms, and one 70m truck mounted platform. All of the truck mounted platforms have been highly specified to include a number of innovations which aim to assist the work of customers and operators.

All units have been designed to include a new safety rail that provides a fall arrest system for operators and engineers required to access the truck deck during maintenance and inspection processes. This system, which is now available for general inclusion with most of the Bronto product line, was originally created as a Nationwide Platforms’ specification.

The units also feature a high definition camera system which enables the vehicle’s driver to view all blind spots at a glance, ensuring awareness of cyclists to the side and other hazards to the rear, including its tail swing. All of the Bronto truck mounted platforms procured in 2013 are also fitted with telematics, enabling straightforward diagnostics and performance data analysis.

The units are now available to hire from the Nationwide Platforms’ fleet.
