Blue line

DEFINITION: Blue line

What is blue line?

If you work with lift trucks, you've probably seen them before. The blue line technology. The blue line technology that projects lines onto the ground. They are commonly called 'safety lights' because they are designed to make the forklift truck environment safer. To create a safer environment in your warehouse, it is a good idea to equip your forklift trucks with blue line technology. The blue line helps where the audible alarms stop. A high visibility blue line projects a bright blue line onto the floor and alerts others to keep a safe distance from the truck. There is an option to mount the safety lights at the front or rear of the truck. The blue line is especially designed for indoor environments and gives a clear light pattern off.

Installing the safety lamp

It is useful to mount the safety light in a high, strategic place. In many cases, the roof of the forklift truck seems to be a good place with sufficient mounting and connection possibilities. When mounting the safety light, make sure you adjust the blue line correctly. The warning effect works best when the blue line reaches the ground clearly and does not fade. It is important to check when connecting the safety light that it has the correct margin. We recommend an optimal projection surface of 2.5 metres for the safety lights.

The function of the blue line

The function of the blue line of the forklift safety light is to mark out the movement/direction of the forklift. In the warehouse, where it can often be noisy, warning sounds can drown out the background noise. Therefore a warning in the form of an LED light can be more pleasant and safer in some cases.
