Forklift Safety Gates: AisleCop®
Helps prevent pedestrian/forklift accidents
People and forklifts don't mix
According to the U.S. Department of Labor, about 100 workers are killed and another 20,000 are injured every year by forklifts in the U.S. alone, so safety is always a concern whenever forklifts and people operate in the same space, like they do in most warehouses, shops, factories, distribution centers or lumber yards.
The AisleCop® Safety Gate System helps control traffic to separate forklifts and pedestrians. Depending on the conditions you specify, the gates can restrict pedestrians, restrict forklifts, or restrict both in a highly configurable traffic management plan.
Ideal for blind or limited visibility spots, high-traffic intersections, and other high-exposure areas
Dangerous or blind intersections where visibility may be limited, such as high speed doors, or very high traffic areas are where traffic control gates are most highly recommended. When properly utilized, these gates can potentially help reduce or eliminate lift truck/pedestrian accidents.
AisleCop® Safety System Operation
The system is flexible. Standard automated AisleCop® systems utilize motion detection or other sensors as they scan for forklifts, AGVs, walkies, or other industrial traffic. Intelligent controls help control traffic flow to potentially minimize contact between pedestrians and forklifts. You can specify rules exactly as desired for your operational and safety needs.
AisleCop® systems are safety tools that help define and control access to forklift aisles. They do not provide 100% protection from industrial traffic accidents. AisleCop® gates do not stop forklifts or other industrial traffic. Other critical factors, such as system maintenance, drivers and pedestrian compliance, enforcement of crossing lanes, and assessment of safe crossings are the responsibility of individuals and companies.
