Protection from protruding forklift forks
23 September 2017
When one high profile customer of industrial safety expert McCue needed to protect walkways from the potential danger of protruding ground level forklift truck forks, McCue’s R&D team were called into action.
Polyethylene pedestrian barriers are becoming an integral part of intelligent health and safety procedures in facilities. The products organise a facility and segregate pedestrians from moving vehicles – in turn this creates an optimised, more efficient facility with a long-lasting, low maintenance product.
But what about those forklift forks protruding under the barriers and on to walkways?
McCue’s R&D team solved the problem by delivering the ultra-strong, multifunctional FlexCore Guard Rail. The handrails still guide pedestrians and organise a facility, but a reinforced ground level rail with hidden hardware offers an extra strong layer of protection – and the ability to deflect intrusive forks and keep workers safe.
