Case Intro Teaser Item

The problem:

Confined spaces and crossing people in an explosion-proof environment.

The solution:

Based on incidents and the possibility of harming people, BASF Personal Care and Nutrition GmbH in Düsseldorf, Germany, chose Linde Safety Guard. As a result, a bottleneck was mitigated and speed zones for forklifts were set up only where necessary. As a result, the entire fleet experienced an increase in productivity. 

The result:

Together with our customer, we developed the Linde Safety Guard for the first time for this specific case in explosion protection zone 1.

“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.”
