Look to Bulwark Safety Systems as your source for first-class products from Claitec – Pedestrian and Industrial vehicle safety alert systems and more.
Claitec has developed a comprehensive range of solutions aimed at minimizing occupational hazards in industrial environments with high risk of accidents. Claitec’s systems improve safety levels and provide forklift operators increased protection, ensuring a safe and controlled workplace at all times.
Pedestrian Alert System PAS
The Pedestrian Alert System is a state of the art program that uses RFID sensors to aid in the highest safety practices within areas where your forklifts roam. The Pedestrian Alert System (PAS) cautions the forklift driver when a pedestrian is within a distance of 3 to 20 feet. Which can be adjusted to your needs. The PAS system will identify the pedestrians carrying electronic RFID tags or transponders that alert the driver of a potential human risk with clearly visible flashing lights.
Low Speed Area LSA
Our Low Speed Area system properly adjusts the speed of the forklift in any given area. These speeds can be set to help within areas where more foot traffic takes place versus places that are primarily forklifts. Equipment with LSA systems automatically identify the area where they find themselves and send a speed limitation signal to the truck. The Low Speed Area solution (LSA) uses a panel of reflective coded bands, located on the roof of the doors or in areas where speed changes. When the forklift drives underneath the panel, the sensors decode the change in zone and proceed to activate the relay corresponding to that zone.
Hazardous Area HA
With the Hazardous Area program, you are able to monitor the safety of your employees around certain areas that are deemed more risky, such as the compactor or baler. All operators will carry electronic tags with them. All machines and their respective conveyors will be fitted with detector antennas within adjustable distances between 3 to 15 feet to effectively detect the person carrying the tag. If they should fall on the belt the machine will automatically stop, and a serious accident will be prevented.
Traffic Control System TCS
This comprehensive traffic control system is not dependent on batteries and mobile devices, and operates in a totally passive form. There is a physical separation of pedestrians and forklifts to avoid costly accidents. There are gates that remain locked as the forklift passes through a given zone–to allow for a clear passage for the forklift, and the system includes a warning system for the forklifts as to signal a possible collision in blind spots.
Fall Protection System FPS
When working in and around dangerous machinery that is used to dispose of various materials. We know that taking a chance can be a costly one. With the Fall Protection System, the worker is clasped to a retractable safety device which is anchored to a fixed element. When a fall occurs, the harness tenses up and the Fall Protection Device detects this tension. This device is also responsible for sending the stop signal to the machine, causing a quick halt to prevent serious injury.
The Blind Spot solution minimizes any risk of collision between the forklifts and pedestrians in poor visibility areas. This system integrates the use of traffic lights designed to indicate the right of way for both drivers and pedestrians. Both the forklift and the employee are fitted with a personal tag which releases light signals, that are then captured by the traffic light. At that point the light will indicate who has the right of way.
