Loading docks are dynamic and strategic spaces with high levels of activity, which are prone to frequent accidents between forklifts, trucks and operators. Claitec has recently developed and updated a tool specifically to minimise risk situations in these spaces -the TDS Truck Docking System.

The TDS System minimises the occupational risks that occur in the loading docks, preventing, for example, a truck colliding with the entrance of the dock or leaving while the goods are being loaded.

It is a simple and easy-to-install solution which, once outside the dock, only requires an exterior traffic light, electronic wedge, distance-measuring radar, detection photocell and connection box. While in the docks, it involves a switch box with an RGB beacon on top, an open-door sensor, and an audible alarm.

An effective system for risky manoeuvres.

The TDS System is specially designed to help the driver safely and efficiently load or unload merchandises on the dock, taking into account that operators, forklifts and truck drivers may be involved during this process.

With the TDS System running, when the truck arrives at the dock the driver knows which entrance is available because the outside traffic light is green. At that moment, inside the dock the beacon will be red, indicating that the door should not be opened. The truck, from the outside, will reverse and, as it approaches the entrance, it will be detected by the distance measuring radar that will indicate with the traffic light outside if the truck is far away (green light), or if it is approaching (amber light).

In addition, this radar will be accompanied by photocells located at the entrance, which will indicate if the truck has reached the entrance, causing the exterior traffic light to signal it with a red light.

When the truck reaches the entrance, the traffic light will start flashing amber to alert the truck driver to put the wedge on the rear wheel of their vehicle. Once placed, it will activate a signal to the internal switch box to notify the operators that they can now open the door, and the beacon will turn green on the internal dock. While the operators begin to carry out their task in complete safety, the outside traffic light will turn red again.

Meanwhile, if for whatever reason the truck exceeds the wedge and leaves without completing the task, a very loud audible alarm will be activated to alert all operators in the area that there is danger, also changing the interior beacon of the dock to red colour.

In addition, the system also offers the possibility of detecting people between the distance measuring radar and the truck, adding more safety and control options to those who operate in loading docks.

Dangerous situations leading to occupational accidents arise continuously in industrial spaces with elevated levels of interaction between people and machinery. At Claitec we are constantly seeking solutions that minimise these risks. One such solution is the innovative product we would like to introduce to you today – Copilot. This extremely practical tool functions as a smart complement to the work drivers do, and to assist them in their daily tasks.

Copilot facilitates and increases the flow of information already provided by all Claitec’s safety systems. This simple-to-use touch screen device has multiple functions, but it is mainly used to generate a safety verification checklist of a forklift before using it. It allows to view the detections of forklifts and people and to determine whether the vehicle has had a collision, among other utilities.

With its non-intrusive and intuitive interface, Copilot can display the current status of the components of the PAS System and/or the CAS-G2 on the screen. It allows the driver to know the number of vehicles and pedestrians around him/her at any time, as well as their proximity. On the other hand, it also offers the functionality of vehicle access control, restricting the use of the vehicle to specific users or groups of users.

In addition to this, the information available in Copilot can also be consulted on the web, through the Safeyu platform. Both platforms – Copilot and Safeyu – are connected and share information from the various sensors, as well as from the input and departure of drivers and other events related to the vehicle.

This video on Claitec’s participation in the Logimat fair clearly shows how Copilot works.

Should you have any questions on this system, or any other of Claitec’s safety devices, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Claitec  is proud to introduce Safeyu, an innovative solution designed by our team to prevent occupational accidents. Safeyu connects workers, vehicles and machines to easily identify risk situations in real time and preventively warn the person/s at risk.

Safeyu is a modern, practical, and powerful product that allows logistics companies to ensure and control the safety of their workers, minimising any potential risk. Thanks to all the devices developed by Claitec, all the activity that occurs in the company is recorded and can be monitored from the Safeyu platform.

From the Safeyu website, the company registers its workers, its machinery, its devices, and its headquarters in order to later be able to keep track of all of them and draw key conclusions in terms of prevention, health and occupational safety.

The home page shows different graphs corresponding to the data coming from the devices, be it accident details, potential accidents, or indicators of change status of a device, for example. In addition, this section allows the person in charge to get an idea of ​​the general circumstances of the company to take preventive measures for the future.

In the users’ section, you can access the list of people authorised on the platform, allowing you to individually see the data and events in which they have been involved, as well as being able to configure settings.

In the sites section you can see the company’s different locations, with their corresponding buildings and floors, a map a tracking the vehicles, the events that have occurred in a certain period of time, heat maps, and even the location of traffic control devices – just to mention a few possibilities.

We have grouped the devices into three categories:

  • Firstly, we find the drivers where the tags are registered, as well as permissions can be assigned or rejected, we can also see the checklist and login records.

  • Secondly, we find the vehicles. We can also access all detections and impact records from the devices installed in machines.

  • Lastly, would be the building infrastructure which allows the devices of the infrastructure to be seen, which are located at a fixed point and manage the traffic.

Ensuring the integrity of employees our industries is an absolute priority for Claitec. That is why we are continually looking for improvement tools that prevent occupational accidents and contribute to safety and health at work. And today, we would like to introduce you to our most recent development, the VSG (Virtual Safety Gate) Solution.

The VSG Solution consists of a virtual door operated by photocells and activated by movement. When access to a certain area or intersection is not allowed, the VSG activates a warning system that projects a red line on the ground.

If the door detects a forklift, a line is projected on the ground indicating that access is not allowed. If the driver crosses decides to cross the virtual door against the warning, a light and a sound alarm switch on, and a signal is sent to the vehicle so that the driver is aware of the danger.

Furthermore, this innovative solution can be easily combined with other Claitec tools, such as the VAS Solution. In this case, a pedestrian crossing can be created and program it so that when the door system detects a forklift, the pedestrian crossing is cancelled.

Please note:

It should be noted that the VSG Solution stands out for its multiple benefits and many ways of adapting to the environment where it operates. For instance, if a warehouse does not have any doors, this system can solve the work dynamics by generating virtual doors, thus making the place safer and more practical, and avoiding the need to invest in enclosures.
This system also requires no maintenance, takes up almost no space and is easy to install, thus becoming a highly useful solution for any industry.

Should you have any questions and/or require our advice, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We place our focus today on two products developed by Claitec that have been widely accepted by our customers over the last year and that stand out for their practical and effectiveness of their operation: the T-10R tags and T-10R Badge.

The Tag T-10R is an evolution of the T-10 Tag. The performance of the range radius and the ease of detection in the new device are dramatically improved. It also features a battery with a one month autonomy minimum and it is wirelessly rechargeable, making daily tasks a lot easier. The T-10R tag comes with a high-intensity LED lighting, which helps with rapid detection and it ensures the visibility of the person wearing the tag. With a 360° angle light, it can be seen from anywhere, upping the safety levels in our workspaces and preventing many occupational accidents.

In addition, the new tag has a vibration system, which is incorporated as a new alert channel for operators in the presence of another person or vehicle. And it also generates a high intensity sound warning, completing a wide range of alert forms that improve safety standards in our industries.

The T-10 R Badge, on the other hand, is the ideal solution for the protection and control of visitors in industries. It is currently being already widely used by our clients, providing very good results in improving work safety and the reduction of accidents.

Persons registering as visitors are given a T-10R Badge tag on the card with their credentials. What that means is that by only carrying a simple card the person is protected from forklifts and loading machines. The T-10 R Badge tag is an adaptation of the new T-10R tag but with the unique feature of being a card holder which makes it a lot more difficult for the operator or the person who is visiting to forget it or lose it.

Always conscious of the vital role that forklifts play in the daily work of our industries today, at Claitec we are constantly seeking to provide solutions that complement their operation, make them more effective and safer, facilitating drivers’ tasks, and ultimately, helping prevent accidents.

In today’s post we’d like to introduce you to one of the latest tools we have developed after listening to several of our clients’ suggestions. After learning about some of the problems they face and some of the accidents that occur because of the excess height in the load transported by the forklifts, we created an innovative tool known as the High load sensor HLS.

The HLS warns forklift drivers as soon as it detects that the loads picked up exceed the permitted heights or predefined measurements. Thanks to the light and sound signal sent to the driver if the load exceeds the maximum allowed, we now prevent unsafe movements that could lead to an accident.

In addition, the HLS Solution is presented as an ideal complement in the prevention of accidents in warehouse doors, a weak point managed today by installing a bidirectional Tz2 Tag on the warehouse doors and incorporating the PAS System on the forklifts. These solutions make it possible for drivers to be warned when a vehicle approaches a door that is closed or not fully open.

If you have any questions, if you want to know more about our solutions or if you require our advice, do not hesitate to contact us.

One of Claitec’s key missions since its inception has been to continuously improve the safety and health standards in all industries, as well as to prevent work accidents involving operators and machinery. We do so by comprehensively understanding the workspaces we work with, and developing solutions that complement each other, creating safer places and providing better results for our clients.

In this video we invite you to discover how some of our solutions can be perfectly integrated and work harmoniously in a workspace to achieve greater safety and efficiency. We suggest you imagine a journey through the industry and appreciate how the different solutions are activated:

Your journey starts with a forklift travelling around a warehouse to unload a truck. Shortly after, an operator leaves the safety zone to encounter the moving vehicle. This action automatically triggers the PAS System (Pedestrian Alert System), warning the driver that it detected a person nearby. This system can differentiate between objects and people, and it can detect an operator even behind a wall or a shelf.

Continuing with our tour, we notice another forklift entering the warehouse and immediately activating the innovative Roof Radar – a safety system that automatically reduces the speed of a vehicle as it enters a building. The way it works is that when the radar detects the ceiling, it automatically selects the low speed in the vehicle to regulate traffic and avoid accidents in closed spaces. When leaving the roof space, the Roof Radar deactivates on its own.

In that same depot we now see the TCS traffic control system in operation in action. A pedestrian is moving through his safety zone until reaching a crossing where the Pedestrian Safety Gate (PSG) indicate he must stop as a forklift is in circulation. As soon as the vehicle has gone, the traffic light turns green, and the Pedestrian Safety Gate (PSG) allow our pedestrian to move forward.

The vehicle then comes to an intersection just as another forklift approaches. It is at this moment that our CAS-G2 System is activated, a tool designed to avoid collisions between forklifts. This system allows a vehicle to detect another with the same solution already installed, alerting drivers to take the necessary precautions. The CAS-G2 has a configurable range of up to 40 meters, and it can detect vehicles even in blind spots.

Then, we see a forklift moving down an aisle loading or unloading merchandise. When it reaches the end of the aisle, and as it converges on a main warehouse’s path, the risk of a collision in this treacherous location increases considerably. That’s when the Crossing Guard System comes into action, warning from above through visual alerts – be it traffic lights, blue spot projection or the VAS Projector (safety alert display) to alert the driver about whether or not he has rite of passage permit, guaranteeing its integrity.

We can also see how the NAS system provides safety in that same warehouse as in all warehouses with narrow aisles, minimising the risk of collision between forklifts in areas with reduced spaces. If a forklift intends to enter an aisle where another vehicle is already operating, it will immediately be warned by a traffic light signal indicating that it cannot continue its course. If the forklift remains in the aisle, the traffic light will indicate its presence in the area to the rest of the vehicles or pedestrians approaching the place.

Today’s tour concludes with the TDS System in action for unloading of vehicles – a safety system which minimises the risks of being run over at loading docks. This tool consists of a traffic light that warns the forklift driver when operators are present. In this case, the dock is equipped with detection sensors, which emit signals that the traffic light passes on to the operators and drivers, avoiding risks and accidents.

One of our missions at Claitec is to keep our team and processes in a continuous state of improvement. We are constantly searching for and designing new ways to strengthen our tools and enhancing our portfolio. The product we are proud to present today is the result of this tireless search. Our new long-range antenna reinforces the capabilities of our solutions and provides different alternatives for the control of safety in our workspaces, helping to reduce and avoid workplace accidents.

The new long-range antenna is compatible with all of Claitec’s vehicle, people and property detection systems. It emits a LF field that warns of the presence of people or machinery within its range.

This new type of long-distance antenna is installed in the vehicle or machine that incorporates the PAS (Pedestrian Alert System) and thanks to its new design, it is now capable of detecting at a range of up to 11 meters, compared to the standard LF antenna’s detection range of up to 6,5 meters.

In other words, with the new antenna we are expanding the use of the different Claitec systems – particularly in larger vehicles (over 3,5 tons and higher speeds) -, and in situations where more detection distance is required.

Claitec’s new antenna features several characteristics that make it ideal for work in industrial environments:

  • IP67
  • Temperature range from -40ºC to + 85ºC
  • High degree of shock absorption
  • Easy installation thanks to its integrated support, among others points in its favour

Strengthening the PAS and TCS Systems.

The Pedestrian Alert System (PAS) is a solution that warns truck drivers when it detects a person at adjustable distances. This unique system is capable of differentiating between people and objects, and it even detects workers who are behind a wall or a shelf. The PAS is highly used and valued by our customers, and now, thanks to this new antenna, we are almost doubling its range capacity, going from 6,5 to 11 meters in total.

AThis new antenna also provides extremely positive results for the TCS Solution (a Traffic Control System that differentiates pedestrians and forklifts in the same workspace), allowing for broader controls, earlier warnings and improving the coexistence of machines and people, thus reducing risks and avoiding workplace accidents.


Should you need more information on how to improve your levels of occupational safety, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

The coexistence between forklifts and pedestrians is one of the most challenging aspects of the safety of our workplaces. The team at Claitec is continually devising ways to help us overcome the risks that it generates. We know that speed is related to safety, but we are also aware that productivity demands are important, and our latest solution finds the perfect balance.


Meet, the Roof Radar!

Roof Radar is a safety system that automatically reduces the speed of a vehicle when it enters a building. As soon as the radar detects a roof, it immediately selects the low speed on the forklift until it leaves that space again.

In other words, the forklift can return from carrying out tasks in an open space without pedestrians, such as the loading and unloading of merchandise on a beach, and as it enters the warehouse or work area where there are pedestrians about, it will automatically modify its speed without requiring any action from the driver. The Roof Radar prevents the possible negative effects of a forgetful or distracted operator in relation to the speed of the machine.

The Roof Radar complements the safety features of the vehicle and can be integrated into any type of forklift. Thanks to a sensor based on radar technology, this innovative solution from Claitec is capable of detecting superstructures (i.e. ceilings) in a range of up to 24 meters.

The Roof Radar comes with four settings for radar’s reaction time and eight settings for its detection range, which means that this device can work even in the most complex operating conditions. The sensitivity of the transmitter ensures that small superstructures such as bridges, tree canopies and pipes do not cause any unnecessary reduction in forklift speed.


The device can be easily installed in the driver’s cab or on the vehicle’s protective roof. The detection zone distance, sensitivity and output settings can be easily selected on the Roof Radar.

The team at Claitec is here to help you.

The team at Claitec is constantly seeking ways to solve our clients’ challenges and to improve upon the tools currently available for them to do so. The AV-30 – the next step in the evolution of the AV-50 verification antenna – is the result of this pursuit.

The purpose of the AV-50 device is to verify the status of the batteries and the correct functioning of the active tags’ RF communication in a certain workspace. Using additional software and a USB device connected to a computer, this tool allows the date and time of the verified tags to be recorded.

In addition to the verification antenna, the AV-50 can be used as an Access Control. This function is now improved thanks to the AV-30, which can send an output signal that activates an electromagnet and can also have a potential-free relay to activate other elements, such as an automatic door, a pilot light, or a traffic light.

The AV-30 delivers different innovative solutions compared to the AV-50, including:

  • It is a more compact solution.
  • It can perform both functions i.e., antenna verification and access control.
  • It is powered at 100 – 240 VAC through an IP68 connector.
  • It is easier to install, saving time and increasing efficiency.
  • It can be mounted on the wall and on a pole aided by several accessories.
