Safety is no accident

We take every design past its tipping point to find exactly where its limits lie. Moment sensitive outreach then stops you where you can pull your hardest, down a slope on a windy day, and still have a healthy margin of safety.

Our control algorithm has been developed and analysed using the most up-to-date software. Twinned sensors, high performance controllers and fail-safe control logic mean that a VZ platform will keep you out of harm’s way.

Emergency power and fail-safe manual operation come as standard, so you will always get down safetly if the power fails.

This dual focus on performance and safety on our VZ range sets the benchmark for van-mounted platforms on the road today.
