Telehandler safety with Series 2TH

Using the Series 2TH to increase safety for those working on HS2.

Leading the way in telehandler safety

One of our latest innovations is an Advanced Height Limiter system – the Series 2TH – which provides real time height monitoring and protection to all types of telehandler.

Lynch Plant Hire is the first company in the UK to fit this system to one of its newest machines, a JCB 540-140 Loadall Telehandler. The system was installed by GKD official installer, Ben Welham of BW Eng Ltd.

Once the JCB telehandler had been fitted with the Series 2TH, it went straight to work on the HS2 rail project with Buckingham Group Contracting.

We were pleased with the Telehandler system on site. The system was fit for purpose, restricting the telehandler from operating outside the safe working zone. This helped us to ensure that we were working safely and reducing risk for our operators.

The Series 2TH is designed for use when telehandlers are operating in restricted or confined spaces, such as underneath power lines or while lifting into buildings. Using a dedicated, integrated angle and boom extension sensor, the system continually measures the angle of the boom together with the length of the extension to ensure height limits are not exceeded.

It is designed to be self-explanatory and operator-friendly through the use of simple graphical interfaces and touch screen controls.

The video below demonstrates how simple the Series 2TH (known as SensorSafe at the time of recording) is to operate. If you look closely you’ll also notice the old GKD logo on the system, which has since been updated to match our brand new look!
