Forklift Tricolor Rear Light
Safety lights help communicate a safe border around forklifts in your warehouse. They grab the attention of pedestrians and fellow operators instantly and let them know to stay away.
Blue pedestrian spotlights mounted on the forklift’s overhead guard shine a blue light 10-20 feet in front of the lift truck to warn pedestrians to keep their distance.
The forklift’s headlights provide a clear view of the area in front of the truck when operating in dark areas. This allows you to maneuver the forklift safely and prevents personal injury as well as damage to both the forklift, transported goods and the environment. Currently, most new forklifts are equipped with LED lights which offer more durability than traditional halogen bulbs and consume less energy.
If you work in a busy warehouse, extra lighting is often needed to help other people see the forklift and avoid accidents. Safety lights and strobe lights are available as add-ons to forklifts and can be key-activated, travel direction activated or come in various colors to meet your workplace needs.
Blue spot lights are mounted on the forklift’s overhead guard and aimed down at the ground to alert pedestrians and fellow operators of the lift truck’s Forklift Tricolor Rear Light presence. These lights also come in different configurations such as a red light, green warning light and white warning light depending on your application.
Combination lights add additional indicators on the rear of the forklift’s overhead guard, such as turn signal and parking/clearance lights. This is an effective way to save space and still have all your essential safety lights. The lights are typically activated when the forklift’s key is turned on and they automatically turn off when the forklift is parked or traveling in reverse to reduce amp draw from the battery.
Typically mounted on the overhead guard and aimed towards the ground, these blue spotlights are designed to help alert pedestrians to the forklift’s presence. Often key-activated and travel direction-activated, these lights stay on while the forklift is traveling forward and turn off when in reverse. Some models are also programmable and offer additional functions such as parking/clearance and turn signal lights.
Unlike the headlights, these work lights are usually halogen-based and can be more sensitive to vibration and shock. These lights also draw more amps than LED lights and may drain the battery faster on electric forklifts if left on for prolonged periods of time.
Keep pedestrians aware of your forklift with this rear white/red light system that stays white when traveling 5 in 1 spotlight forward and turns red while reversing. This option is programmable and offers 18 field-selectable flash patterns for maximum visibility.
Rear Work Lights
Safety lights mounted on a forklift help communicate a safe zone for pedestrians and other forklifts. They aren’t required by OSHA but they can improve safety for everyone involved.
These lights are typically located on the rear overhead guard and aimed downwards toward the ground, in front or behind the forklift, depending on application. They come in a variety of colors, including blue. Some have narrower profiles than headlights, allowing them to fit within the confines of the overhead guard and better protect them from damage.
These work lights are available in both halogen and LED options. The halogen lights use a typical bulb and may be susceptible to vibration or shock, while the LED bulbs are much more durable. LED lights also draw less amperage and allow the operator to use more runtime on battery-powered forklifts.
In a noisy warehouse environment, workers may not hear a forklift coming. This warning light projects a bright, crisp 180deg arc pattern beam onto the floor to alert pedestrians that the vehicle is nearby. Its programmable design allows for 18 field-selectable flash patterns, and multiple units can be synchronized via S-Link to deliver optimal light pattern effect.
This PAL system is an excellent way to keep pedestrians alert and aware of oncoming or reversing forklifts. Its rear light bar stays white when traveling forward and switches to red when in reverse. The lights mount to the front or back of the forklift with brackets. They can also be attached to the overhead guard or other forklift components via a magnetic base. The programmable features of this system can be modified with coding.
