ACTIVE AND INTELLIGENT TECHNOLOGY FOR FORKLIFTS THAT IMPROVES SAFETY AND SAVES MONEY.

Forklifts are powerful and agile tools in many industries however, these machines pose many potential risks when moving or stationary – including the risk of tipping over if the lift is elevated and overloaded.

In Australia, there are over 1000 forklift related accidents each year, according to Verge Safety Barriers. Sadly, according to Work Safe Australia, from 2003 to 2015 there were 68 forklift fatalities – that’s over five people each year.

Operators need suitable training on forklift operations, weight load understanding, traffic management, and storage. They also need the best technology – intelligent and active technology that alerts them to danger, and to responds ahead of their own actions.

In recent years, innovative forklift safety products, such as MAX-SAFE’s Forklift Safety range, have made great strides in helping to minimise risk to operators, site or warehouse workers, and property. It’s an ideal solution for businesses in the Warehousing & Materials Handling industry, as well as businesses in the building and construction industry.

MAX-SAFE INTELLIGENT FORKLIFT SAFETY PRODUCTS & HOW THEY WORK

  • SEQUENCED SEATBELT INTERLOCK

    The MAX-SAFE Sequenced Seatbelt Interlock system uses a seat sensor and a seatbelt buckle sensor to determine if the operator is seated and buckled (in that sequence) before it allows the vehicle to start and/or drive off.

    • If the operator removes the belt, the system will neutralise the drive of the forklift.
    • In order to recommence driving, the operator must be seated and buckled.
  • TRANSMISSION INTERLOCK SYSTEM

    Our Forklift Speed Control System helps ensure safety speeds are complied with on-site. The Transmission Interlock system monitors the vehicle’s speed and engine RPM, and will only allow a gear selection or gear change if the speed and RPM are both below a set level. This system is guaranteed to reduce the drive tyre wear by at least 50%, in addition to protecting the transmission system.

    • Ideal for all forklift sizes.
  • FORKLIFT EXCESSIVE LOAD CUT OUT SYSTEM

    This system provides a lift and travel lockout if the load being lifted is over the rated capacity of the forklift, which could cause the forklift to tip.

    • It can detect the load, from the initial lift attempt, through to the lift engine RPM changing from first to second stage.
    • It is calibrated to detect and react within less than a 100 KG window, no matter what the work state of the forklift is.
  • REAR SENSOR ALERT

    This sensor alerts the operator if an obstacle (person or object) is behind the forklift. Forklift accidents at work are regrettable and, in many cases avoidable if the right forklift safety products are installed and operators suitably trained.
