When people and machinery are working side by side, guards and enclosures are crucial for safety. The new robust Collision Guard L acts like a guard rail, stopping forklifts and transport trolleys from driving into and damaging racks as they take corners.
Freely steerable trolleys and vehicles are used to load and unload goods in both warehouses and production environments. And since it is all too easy to collide with racks when taking a corner, item has developed Collision Guard L to protect this sensitive area. The Collision Guard is securely anchored to the ground and is not connected to the rack or frame. Like a guard rail, it stops the impact of a collision from being transferred to the fixture. Without such protection, a rack could be damaged and, depending on its load, even collapse - with unforeseeable consequences for personnel and materials.
The L-shaped Collision Guard measures 405mm high and satisfies requirements for mechanical coverings at corner areas as per DGUV Regulation 108-007 (previously BGR 234). The striking black & yellow hazard markings also draw attention to the guard unit in line with ASR A 1.3.
Collision Guard L is part of a comprehensive range of guards and enclosures from item that helps to prevent accidents and operational disruption. item supplies guards, enclosures, partitions, safety doors and impact-proof panel elements. In addition to passive fixtures for separating working areas, the company also offers active safety elements such as sensors that can identify when a door is open and then automatically stop the relevant machine.
To ensure personnel benefit from maximum safety, these elements can be integrated directly into plants. Thanks to the mutual compatibility of the item building kit systems, companies can create seamless, end-to-end safety systems.
