The SafeBoarder story

SafeBoarder is the leading supplier to the mining and construction industry of premium retractable access systems that feature the latest patented injury protection technology ‘L Force Geometry’.

AUSTRALIAN EQUIPMENT ENGINEERING (The organisation behind the brand – SafeBoarder) was established in January 2005, the owners (Nathan & Marija Ellement) pride themselves on producing a state of the art quality product designed for the global market.

SafeBoarder offers companies and their operator’s real peace of mind; they’re safe, reliable and require very little maintenance. Due to the added demand in recent times for these extremely safe and reliable retractable access systems worldwide, SafeBoarder has grown to two manufacturing plants (Perth Western Australia and Rutherford New South Wales).

As our company continues to grow, we stay committed to the tradition of supplying only the best access system at the best price and on time.


The staff at Australian Equipment Engineering pride themselves on offering you an extremely high level of customer service / product support and know the SafeBoarder range intimately.

Our highly skilled team combined with the latest in design and manufacturing technologies ensure that you’ll get a premium quality product that’s been tailored for your application. SafeBoarder boasts a range of state of the art products specifically designed to enable easier and safer access to almost all types of mobile earthmoving and construction equipment.

SafeBoarder’s patented and innovative Injury Protection “L” Force Geometry provides the user with a much safer access system when lowered and a more rigid access system when retracted. We use the SIMPLEST mechanics to raise and lower the personnel access system, offering peace of mind for the users.

At SafeBoarder we’ve designed our range of access systems to use the existing hydraulics of the host machine and we also ensure every system conforms to the current ISO and Australian Standards where possible.

Our product range offers peace of mind, just ask anyone who’s used our patented “L” Force Geometry and they’ll confirm if anyone attempts to raise the SafeBoarder whilst a person is either on or holding onto the access system, it will not move.

With the SUPERIOR design, quality and after sales support, SafeBoarder access systems are tried and tested in some of the world’s harshest conditions. SAFEBOARDER is Simpler, Safer and Superior and offers Solutions for any sized operation.
