BPH Attachments and Prolec sign distribution deal
BPH to distribute complete range of Prolec equipment including machine guidance systems
BPH Attachments have been granted distribution rights by Prolec for the supply of the company’s machine control and safety equipment, which have been designed to maximize the efficiency and safety of earthmoving and demolition operations.
BPH Attachments now offer Prolec equipment which is divided into three product groups: ProSafe; ProLoad; and ProGrade with all products compliant to EU and UK (LOLER) regulations.
The ProSafe range of safety systems is designed to ensure equipment on which it is installed is able to operate within safe operating parameters during lifting and slewing operations.
The ProSafe range includes Heightmaster, a product that provides both height monitoring and height control to ensure the maximum safe working height of construction plant is not exceeded. As well as height control, the line also caters for lift control with the Liftwatch 5 system which monitors maximum legal lifting capacity for tracked and wheeled excavators.
The company’s ProLoad range of on-board weighing products has been designed to improve the productivity, safety and compliance of material handling operations in a wide range of applications. Prolec’s Weighloader for loading shovels and ADT equivalents are fully featured, easy-to-use on-board weighing systems that offer superior performance.
Prolec’s ProGrade machine guidance systems are designed to enhance the performance of construction plant deployed in applications such as mass excavation, grading, dredging, piling, trenching, ditching, and waterway construction.
The ProGrade range consist of 2D/3D machine guidance products that utilize multiple sensors, a user interface and optional GPS unit which can be fitted to a variety of digging machinery, including excavators, dredgers, pilling rigs and cable cranes. Key features, such as 3D terrain simulation, actual verses target progress and material extraction calculation, ensure end-users benefit from product improvement of up to 50% when using ProGrade equipment.
BPH sales director Matthew Bastable said: ‘By offering new and existing customers a product which can improve safety and machine productivity we are confident the Prolec range of equipment will prove popular.
‘A ProGrade machine-guidance system has already found favour on a major government-backed infrastructure project in East London where its presence has negated the use of extensive stake setting and grade checking, thereby improving efficiency and safety on site.’
