Blue Light for
Safety first! Whether employees are driving a forklift truck or walking, they quickly lose sight of potential risks when working. They may either be inattentive or absorbed in their work. Loud noises are distracting and can drown out important warning signals. This can all cause dangerous accidents on business premises. The innovative Linde BlueSpot™ driving path warning system minimizes risk without making a sound.
The LED light of the Linde BlueSpot™, attached to the driver’s protective roof frame, project a blue warning spot onto the ground. This warns pedestrians and other forklift drivers of approaching trucks. This visual solution from Linde Material Handling intuitively draws attention to moving forklift trucks. It therefore significantly increases safety, both in aisles and at crossings where visibility is poor.
Unobtrusive but can’t be ignored
The Linde BlueSpot™ consists of two bright, anti-glare LED lights that project a blue spot onto the ground. They can be set to either shine constantly or flash. The light spot is positioned several meters ahead of the forklift truck, whether it’s traveling forward or backward. It lasts an impressively long time: The Linde BlueSpot™ lasts for more than 20,000 hours, as the LED technology enables high light intensity with low levels of energy.
Safe and durable
The electrical components in the driving path warning system have been certified as IP 67. They therefore offer ideal protection against environmental influences: The Linde BlueSpot™ is resistant to water, for example when the forklift truck undergoes high-pressure cleaning, and dust. The warning light is also not sensitive to shaking and vibrations.
RETROFITTING THE LINDE BLUESPOT™
The BlueSpot™ family as a retro-fit kit
The Linde BlueSpot™ is available with more than just a blue light. For clear directions and signals, Linde has developed two additional versions as part of a retro-fit kit.
The safety of people, trucks, and goods is the central idea of Linde Material Handling’s Zero Accident Philosophy. With integrated solutions, Linde is working toward a future of safer intralogistics.
Sabine Neuß has been a member of the Executive Board since 2013. As Chief Operating Officer she is responsible for the entire production.
A pleasant, safe companion
Thanks to the high-performance LED lights of the Linde BlueSpot™, employees are made aware of circulating forklift trucks in a pleasant, yet effective way; no loud noises, nothing to startle them, no risk. Linde’s warning signal solution has been given a suitably positive response by employees. Even visitors to the factory instinctively recognize the Linde BlueSpot™ as a warning and react accordingly.
