EX FOPS and FOG Systems

Products / Excavator Attachments / Excavator Guarding & Cabs / EX FOPS and FOG Systems

WBM’s FOPS (Falling Object Protection Systems) and FOG (Falling Object Guard) are designed to protect the excavator cab and operator from falling objects in dangerous environments. These protective structures are used primarily in the demolition, forestry and construction industries.

A FOPS is a separate structure that is mounted around the cab of a machine (ROPS certified or non-certified cab), that protects the cab from falling objects.

A FOG on the other hand, is guarding that is bolted directly to a certified ROPS cab, typically in two pieces: a roof and a front FOG.

As many machine manufacturers are now producing their own ROPS certified cabs, it is becoming more and more common to only have to install FOG on machines, protecting both the operator and cab from damage.

Prior to release from manufacturing, WBM FOPS can be performance tested by request on our Structural Performance Test Stand located in Langley, British Columbia and compliant with rigid industry standards.
