Flow-Rite Safety Solutions Inc.’s Crossing Guard is the only forklift collision awareness system that requires the detection of two separate motions to trigger an alarm, reducing the occurrence of nuisance alarms, the company said. Crossing Guard also detects the presence of motionless individuals, which directly addresses a common cause of forklift accidents and fatalities. Crossing Guard monitors a definable detection area with four adjustable sensors that completely cover the risk area. 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 alarm light. Crossing Guard uses a microprocessor that can collect and save sensor activities, aiding the investigation of an occurrence. Trial installation and product demonstrations are available, and Flow-Rite will provide a free on-site safety assessment during planning and design.
