Focus : Occupational accident prevention, a secure car-carrier

GEFCO teamed up with two major car-carrier manufacturers in order to create an innovative solution for preventing the risk of falls from the upper platform of a car-carrier.
The “dragonfly system” consists of a metal rail attached to the platform that makes it possible to guard rails from the vehicle’s door in order to ease the driver’s exit. The operator saves time, avoids shocks on the bodywork and works in a secured environment.
