Creates Safer Work Environment in Industrial Settings
Collision Sentry®, designed to create a safer working environment in industrial buildings where forklift traffic and pedestrian traffic intersect, is the newest product offering from Sentry Protection Products. Like a traffic light, Collision Sentry provides a visual warning to drivers and pedestrians that traffic is around the corner. Collision Sentry is easy to install, self-powered, compact, highly visible and reliable.
Lakewood, OH, – Every day in thousands of industrial environments, pedestrians and forklifts maneuver through buildings covering the same territory and often navigating the same path. When those paths cross, the result can be damaging – not only to the equipment and facility – but more importantly – to people.
Collision Sentry® can help reduce or eliminate “blind corner” collisions by providing a visual warning that alerts forklift drivers and pedestrians to approaching traffic. Collision Sentry uses infrared motion detectors to “see” around corners. When motion is detected on both sides of the corner — meaning a collision is possible — LED warning lights signal in both directions that there is traffic around the corner.
“Anyone who has worked in a busy building with lots of traffic will understand this device.” He goes on, “This device is designed to install quickly and work instantly, especially on pallet rack systems, and it will be priced so that it is possible to place one anywhere it is needed. Because this is a battery-driven device it can be mounted anywhere without worry about an electrical source.”
Each patent pending unit is easy to install, self-powered, portable, compact, and lightweight and can be deployed immediately. Collision Sentry snaps on to pallet racks quickly using integrated magnet mounts. Motion Sensors are programmed to detect movement on both sides of the corner, sending a warning in ample time for corrective action. Highly visible LED lights on the Collision Sentry flash when collision is imminent. Collision Sentry is pre-set and ready to use.
