What is a red arrow?

Working safely in your logistics centre? If you work with forklift trucks, you've seen it before. The red arrow lights are also known as "safety lights" because they are designed to make the forklift truck environment safer. To create a safe environment in your logistics centre, you need to equip your forklift truck with red arrow technology. The lamp projects a clearly marked red arrow on the floor and warns others to stay at a safe distance from the truck. The red arrow helps where sound alarms stop. The safety lights can be mounted on the front or rear of the forklift truck. The red arrow is especially designed for indoor environments and provides a clear light pattern.

Installing a safety lamp

It is convenient to mount the safety lights at a very strategic location. In many cases, the roof of a forklift truck seems to be a good place with sufficient mounting and connection possibilities. When positioning the safety light, remember to adjust the red arrow correctly. The warning effect works best when the red arrow reaches the ground brightly and is not dimmed or faded. When connecting a safety light it is important to check that it is correctly aligned. We recommend an optimum projection surface of 2.5 metres for the safety lights. The safety lamps are also waterproof.

The function of the red arrow

The function of the red arrow of the safety light is to mark out the movement/direction of the forklift truck. In the logistics centre where it can often be noisy, the alarm sound can get lost in the background noise. Thus, a warning in the form of an LED arrow light may be more pleasant and safer in some cases.
