Collision Sentry®®®®® Always on Guard


Collision Sentry®®®®®


“Creating a safer working environment in industrial buildings where forklift traffic and pedestrian traffic intersect.”

Why Collision Sentry?

Blind spots around corners where pedestrians and forklifts intersect are a major cause of accidents. Pedestrians and employees hit by forklifts account for 20% of forklift accidents or about 19,000 people per year.

Every day in thousands of industrial environments, pedestrians and forklifts maneuver through buildings covering the same territory and often crossing the same path. When those paths cross at a “blind corner” intersection, the result is damaging – not only to the equipment and facility – but more importantly – to people.

Always on guard, 24/7, Collision Sentry stands watch over “blind corner” intersections in industrial settings where pedestrian traff ic and forklift traff ic converge. When motion is detected on both sides of the corner,

Collision Sentry works like a traff ic light to send a visual signal to warn approaching traff ic of a possible collision.

“If there is a blind corner where it is impossible to see traffic,

Collision Sentry will see for you.”

The Collision Sentry Advantage

Each unit is self-powered using standard D-cell alkaline batteries,

eliminating the need for any wiring to a facility’s electrical system.

Batteries are designed to operate for one to two years before battery

change depending on usage. The system is equipped with a low-battery

indicator that sends warning well in advance of the batteries needing

replacement. When needed, replacements are readily available.

Passive Infrared Motion Sensors are programmed to detect

motion on both sides of the corner, sending a warning in ample time for

the forklift driver and the pedestrian to correct their movements. These

PIR sensors are a proven technology often used in security lighting and

alarm systems. They are rugged, feature a wide lens range and don’t

wear out.

Highly visible LED lights on the Collision Sentry warn of a possible

collision by f lashing when motion is detected from both directions.

LED lights are known for their relatively long life, requiring minimal or no

replacement and resulting in reduced maintenance costs. Collision

Sentry’s warning lights f lash only when someone is really there, creating

less false reads and sending a powerful visual warning of a possible

collision. Collision Sentry’s PIR sensors are pre-set and ready to use. No

adjustment time necessary.

Collision Sentry is portable , requires minimal space and no tools for

installation. Installs easily and virtually anywhere. The unit is compact , lightweight and can be deployed immediately following installation.

With the included magnet mounts, units can be easily snapped onto

pallet racking systems. A tether is included with each unit for added

fastening security.
