The anti- collision device prevents collision with nearby structures, buildings, trees and other tower cranes working at the close vicinity.
The component is much critical as it provides total safety coverage to the tower cranes. This is in contrast to safe load indicators.
The collision device has been customized in accordance with Indian site requirements, taking into consideration factors like frequent power disruption stalling the operation of the tower cranes midway in operations or wind conditions. Based on the factors, the anti-collision pack has a monitoring system installed at ground that monitors the working of the crane in clusters.It then uploads the data to the crane operators working in the zone to take note of other cranes working in the zone so as to avoid collision. On power disruption to a crane it passes information to other cranes to stall operation to the power disrupted crane so as to avoid collision.
Everest has supplied 32 systems of the anti-collision device to tower cranes for L&T, Sobha Developers and BE Billimoria for their tower cranes. Everest Engineering is the exclusive distributor for GJJ tower cranes passenger and material hoists in India.
