What is the red line?
If you work with forklift trucks, you might have seen the red line before. The red line is also known as "safety lights" because they are designed to make the forklift truck environment safer. To create a safe environment in your warehouse, you need to equip your lift truck with red line technology. A clearly marked red line projects onto the floor and warns others to stay at a safe distance from the truck. The red line helps where sound alarms stop. There is an option to mount the safety lights at the front or rear of the truck. The red line is specifically designed for indoor environments and provides a clear light pattern.
Installing the safety lamp
It is convenient to mount the safety lights at a high strategic location. In many cases, the roof of a forklift truck seems to be a good place with sufficient mounting and connection possibilities. When mounting the safety light, make sure that you adjust the red line correctly. The warning effect works best when the red line reaches the ground clearly and is not dimmed or faded. When connecting the safety light, it is important to check that it is aligned correctly. For safety lighting, we recommend an optimum projection surface of 2.5 metres. The safety lights are also waterproof.
The function of the red line
The function of the red line of the safety light is to demarcate the movement/direction area of the forklift truck. In the warehouse, where it can often be noisy, warning sounds can get lost in the background noise. So a warning in the form of an LED light can in some cases be more pleasant and safer.
