Flow-Rite Safety Solutions Inc. (Atlanta, GA) has introduced CROSSING GUARD, the only forklift collision awareness system that requires the detection of two separate motions to trigger an alarm, says the company. By requiring two inputs, CROSSING GUARD can reduce the occurrence of nuisance alarms. CROSSING GUARD also detects the presence of motionless individuals, which addresses a common cause of forklift accidents and fatalities. Depending on the location, sensors can be infrared and/or ultrasonic. In production pick up areas and other locations where infrared may be impractical, an optional weight-sensitive sensor model is available. All models sound an audible alarm coupled with a high-intensity LED alarms light.
