Collision Sentry(TM) wins IMHX 2013 Design 4 Safety Award for Technology

Lakewood, OH- Sentry Protection Products' Collision Sentry™ - collision warning device - is the winner in the Technology category of the Design 4 Safety Awards presented today at the 2013 IMHX British materials handling and logistics trade show.

The Design 4 Safety Awards recognize the industry's commitment to safety and highlight the importance of product design in improving safety standards.

The Collision Sentry was "judged by an expert panel to have provided the strongest evidence of making a measurable contribution to the level of safety, or the rate of incident reduction in materials handling operations.

Using infrared motion detectors to "see" around corners, Collision Sentry helps reduce or eliminate "blind corner" collisions by visually alerting forklift drivers and pedestrians to approaching traffic. 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. Each patent-pending unit is easy to install, self-powered, portable, compact, and lightweight and can be deployed immediately.

This is the second Design 4 Safety Award won by Sentry Products. The first, the Rack Sentry® 100mm Cut-out won in the Racking and Storage category at the 2010 IMHX Show.

Sentry Protection Products is a leading provider of innovative, impact resistant products for industrial applications. Manufactured in the United States and Europe and sold worldwide, the award winning, patented product line includes Column Sentry®, Rack Sentry®, Concrete Wrap™, Park Sentry®, Corner Sentry™ and Collision Sentry®. Sentry is headquartered in Lakewood, OH. For additional information call 1.888.265.8660, email or visit
