Minimise risks with the Low Speed Areas (LSA) Solutions, Speed Zoning

Limitación de velocidad por Zonas

 

The constant flow of personnel, forklifts and other vehicles found in warehouses, factories and product distribution areas generates a very high risk of accidents. People, goods and even buildings can be damaged when transport systems are handled improperly and at excessive speeds. Injuries and economic losses for the company tend to be severe and as such, increasing the security controls in danger zones must be a priority.

Setting up a maximum speed limit for forklifts is one of the best ways to promote safety in these facilities.

 

What is the Low Speed Areas Solution?

 

The Low Speed Areas Solution provided by Claitec is intended to meet our customers’ safety needs during the transportation of products, ensuring maximum convenience and easy handling.

The LSA solution involves maintaining the forklift’s speed within a limit depending on the area it is located (Speed Zoning).

Thus, in areas where the personnel density is highest, or where there is a considerable number of vehicles, or where the space for maneuvering is minimal, forklifts should travel at low speeds.

Likewise, outer areas that have enough space or that are not usually too busy can accommodate faster speeds.

The LSA solution works through a reflective panel located on the ceiling of the areas that need regulating and which, sends the forklift a signal indicating the appropriate speed limit.

Vehicle sensors receive this information when positioned under the corresponding device, signaling the change in area and indicating the variation in speed.

The selection of the areas which are at greatest risk of accidents is fully customisable and versatile, allowing for the differentiation of various areas within the same building. This represents an improvement with respect to the now obsolete radar devices that focus on detecting the roof of the store, limiting the speed of the forklift in any interior regardless of its characteristics.

 

Why does your company need the LSA Solution?

1. The LSA solution increases the level of industrial safety of your company by improving the way your forklifts are driven.

2. Accidents caused by excessive speeding will be significantly reduced, if not completely eradicated. This will improve the quality of the work areas you offer your employees, giving them the security they need.

3. At the same time, it will help you prevent major economic losses generally caused by the costly replacement of materials and the reconstruction of damaged infrastructure.

4. By preventing collisions, you can also increase the lifetime of the vehicles.

5. Finally, you will be able to optimize business productivity by limiting the speed of the forklifts only in risk areas.

 

The LSA Solution is easy to set up in your warehouse and in the corresponding forklifts. It is manufactured with cutting-edge technology, using materials of the highest quality and highly durable. Its usage and handling is of an unmatched simplicity so it is not necessary to rely on specialised personnel.

Claitec always offers customers the best possible devices to ensure the welfare of workers and the durability of the equipment found in any industrial environment, making available to them the best technology available in the market today.
