Wheel & Drive Safety

Operating a PBB poses serious potential safety risks.

Oshkosh AeroTech offers safety solutions and options that can reduce the chances of contact between individuals and objects and the boarding bridge.

Wheel protection system featuring touch-sensitive switches and drive guards encircling the wheel bogey assembly that are designed to stop the movement of the boarding bridge when contact is made with an object.

Joystick 187w

Joystick enable switch and “WAIT TO DRIVE” features that delay bridge movement momentarily, warning anyone near the wheels and giving them additional time to move away from the wheels.

Stairs E Stop

Emergency Stop Buttons on the console, service stairs, and remote control box to shut down operation of the PBB immediately if someone observes an unsafe situation.

T5760x3840 00313
