ForkTrack - Key Safety Features
Many view ForkTrack as the most comprehensive safety and fleet management product on the market today. It was built to ensure peace of mind that equipment is operated in a safe and efficient manner. ForkTrack has an extensive array of key safety features to assist operators in their day-to-day work in order to keep them safe.
Intelligent Seat/Seatbelt Interlock:
Forklift related deaths commonly result from overturns; seat and seatbelt interlocks ensure operators are wearing their seatbelts at all times and stay safely inside the cabin if the forklift tips.
Digital Weight Indicator:
Overloading of the forklift can cause lack of steering and loss of control. The digital weight indicator provides operators with overload warnings and real time measurement of the load lifted, assisting in keeping the vehicle operating in its safe zone.
Speed and Zone Control:
Speeding makes it hard to stop in the case of unexpected obstructions and pedestrians. Active speed control can be integrated with zone controls to vary speed restrictions across a site.
Overloading can bend and weaken forks, increasing the risk of a forklift tipping over. Lift/tilt lockout provides control of mast movements in situations where a forklift is nearing its rated capacity.
Forklifts must be parked in neutral with the parking brake on. The handbrake interlock ensures the handbrake is always engaged when the operator leaves the vehicle, engaging and shutting down the vehicle.
