“Danger points in one of our explosion-proof areas have been effectively mitigated with the new explosion-proof version of the Linde Safety Guard. Pedestrians are warned in time by flashing lights at danger points in forklift traffic. The speed of the forklift is reduced fully automatically and precisely. When the pedestrians leave the danger zone, the truck automatically increases its speed again. We are all very satisfied with the Linde Safety Guard.”
