Protects low hanging infrastructure

11 December 2018

This newest addition to the A-SAFE range protects low hanging infrastructure in environments where high-level vehicles such as forklift trucks are in operation. It is used to safeguard doorframes, loading docks, infrastructure and overhead walkways, as well as assets such as sprinkler systems and ventilation pipes.

The appropriately named Alarm Bar marries a significant audible alarm with bright red flashing lights to ensure that it is difficult to ignore.

Patented sensor technology mitigates the risk of nuisance tripping. The company says that a common problem its customers encounter with alert systems across their facilities is false alarms. This can be caused by day-to-day traffic movement of heavy vehicles and operation of machinery; as well as wind currents. To solve this, it has developed a new type of electronics technology.

The product is quick and easy to install and fully height adjustable thanks to heavy duty wires and adjustable gripple hooks. Its use of battery power means it can be positioned anywhere on site – with no need to rely on access to a power source. Achieving a two-year battery life, maintenance is kept to a minimum and the plug-and-play battery adaptor makes replacing the batteries a simple task. Due to the self-coloured and UV-stabilised polymer composition, high visibility is maintained. Inbuilt strength and durability further support the 'fit and forget' solution.

The company says that, once the device is installed, drivers become more aware of risks, changing behaviour and avoiding incidents before they occur.
