SkyHorn is the first crane warning horn that attaches to the crane’s Hook-Block; offering an optimal location for warning riggers, workers, and innocent bystanders of the crane’s overhead load position.
Our system dramatically improves the status quo warning horn- which is located at the operators cab. The problems with a horn located at the operators cab are two-fold:
I have been running cranes for around 13 years… I have been using my horn for just shy of a year. With just a simple touch on the foot pedal, it has made life so much easier and safer to operate the crane. I never would have imagined that we would have a way to alert guys through out the job when the hook is near them. I honestly do not think I could do another job without one. If you have not had a chance to try one, I strongly recommend every construction site give it a shot!”
I have been a crane operator for 37 years. I operated Tower cranes for 25 years and mobile cranes for 12. Since this new horn block has come on the market I have noticed an increase in productivity as well as safety. Some of the main problems on construction sites has always been not being able to hear tower crane horns, now, wherever that load block is you can always hear the horn no matter what. Even if the crane is behind an object or structure with the load block, the horn can still be heard.
