Franna Announces new safety feature for the MAC 25-4

Franna cranes recently announced that an emergency bridging key option is now available on their new MAC 25-4 models and can be retrofitted to any MAC 25 model.

Think Safe. Work Safe. Home Safe. The Terex Zero Harm principles not only apply to Franna team members, but also to its customers and operators alike. The new emergency bridging key option provides an additional layer of safety that compliments the existing safety measures of the Franna MAC 25-4.

“Building on the success of this technology with our AT 40, we are pleased to announce that an emergency bridging key option is now available for the MAC 25. Given the high number of MAC 25 units currently in operation, we believe this safety offering will make a real difference to the crane industry in Australia,” says, Mark Lock, Franna’s sales director.

The emergency bridging key is located outside of the cabin and has been designed to maintain operational flexibility. Site safety is enhanced through the provision of a removable key which can be held by authorised site personnel, providing greater control of site lifting practices.

The emergency bridging key provides:

  • Visual and audible warnings;
  • A removable external key as a provision for overriding operational failure; and
  • Minimised speed of crane movements while activated.

The emergency bridging key feature is available for all new Franna MAC 25-4 models or as retrofit to any MAC 25 models with a Dynamic LMI in place.
