Two incredible things happened in 1969. The United States effectively "won" the space race after twelve (12) years of teeth gritting competition with the Soviets. Meanwhile, a gentleman by the name of John L. Grove founded his company JLG Industries, Inc. and just like that men stood on the moon and the Access Industry was Born!

On April 28, 1971 A new boss emerged. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration was founded.

New technology resulted in new regulatory requirements for the users of aerial lifts. OSHA Published 1926.453 for Aerial Lifts and Incorporated by Reference ANSI A92.2-1969.

Wind Tunnel Tested

Since 2018, Tutus has worked closely with the University of Hartford College of Engineering to determine the wind sheer effects of the products being developed. It has now been four years of testing and the outcome so far was the development of a new mesh just for this application. That is why it is appropriately named Gladiator Mesh. We anticipate new mesh and netting will be developed as a result of our efforts. The information from the analysis is being compiled into the development of an ASTME Standard. Be informed.

Fast Installation

The greatest cost savings with our product line is time.  Most products will install in under five (5) minutes and be left on the equipment long after the warranty expires. We have customers who have kept products in service 30+ months. We know what your thinking that means they payed 2.5X less for a product because it held up so well, for so long. What you don't know is that time span resulted in a labor savings in excess of 500 manhours from not having to re-install cheap orange mesh. Incredible value added.

Custom Designs

Just because you don't see your product, that in no way, shape or form, means that we can not make it available to you! Let's discuss all custom needs.
