With 77 standard series and 382 model variants, Linde Material Handling has the right solution for every logistics task. However, the equipment requirements for forklift trucks and warehouse handling equipment may change over time, for instance due to new safety regulations, modified logistics processes, or the comfort requirements of drivers who operate the trucks on a daily basis. In the majority of cases, a simple retrofit helps, for example, to adapt a forklift to the new requirements without an expensive conversion, or to upgrade it with the latest technology. You can also standardize the equipment features of your entire fleet. Linde supplies the necessary retrofit solutions and accessories for the areas of safety, efficiency and comfort. These include, for example, the innovative assistance system Linde Safety Guard, the Linde BlueSpot™ driving path warning device, components for the automatic recording and transmission of operating hours, and a practical holder for smartphones.
There is no room for compromise when it comes to safety in the workplace. That's why Linde provides retrofit solutions ranging from the visual warning signal through to the driver assistance system, which increase safety for drivers and pedestrians in the plant. Examples include the Linde Safety Guard advance warning system for potential hazards, the Linde BlueSpot™ for improved visibility of approaching trucks and the Linde Speed Assist driver assistance system.
SpeedAssist Stops Speeders
Operating the forklift truck quickly may mean higher productivity, but this must not be at the expense of safety in the workplace. Often, forklift drivers are not even aware of their excessive speed. The SpeedAssist assistance system developed by Linde supports drivers by automatically reducing their speed upon entry into the warehouse and production halls – in other words, wherever an adapted speed helps to prevent accidents. The range, sensitivity, and response time of modern radar sensors can be individually adapted to suit the surroundings and customer requirements. This ensures, for example, that the forklift does not inadvertently brake when traveling under bridges in outside areas. The Linde Speed Assist is easy to install, improves safety indoors, and maintains the customary high levels of efficiency of the forklift outdoors.

Forklift drivers spend many hours in their trucks every day, making it all the more important to ensure optimum working conditions. This contributes to efficient operation and maximum comfort for drivers. Numerous accessories allow modern Linde driver cockpits to be adapted to suit special requirements where necessary. For instance, Linde supplies reinforced padded seats and retrofitted holders for electronic devices. This enables the truck equipment to be perfectly aligned with the driver's necessary movements and their ways of working.
