  • Automatic speed restriction

The Fork Truck Control Speed Zoning system offers a cost effective speed limiting solution for sites where there is interaction between forklifts and pedestrians. The system will allow for 2 different speeds for internal and external use and is designed to help lower the risk of incident without affecting efficiency.The Speed Zoning system will automatically limit the speed of forklift trucks to an acceptable level when entering or leaving a building or a specified danger zone, the system will then allow full speed where it is safe to do so.

The system utilises radio based transmitters that are strategically placed around site in doorways, canopies and blind bends. Each transmitter sends out a coded signal which is picked up by any truck that is installed with a receiver unit, which tells the truck to slow down in transmitter controlled specified areas.The Fork Truck Control Speed Zoning system can also be linked into the Fleet Aware pedestrian safety system; the system would then engage a lower speed when it comes into contact with a pedestrian safety tag. Please see the Fleet Aware brochure for further information on this function.
