Keeping Your Warehouse Safe: Collision Sentry by Sentry Protection Products

Every warehouse faces a common challenge: ensuring the safety of employees and inventory at blind corners. These intersections, where pallet racks or walls obscure approaching traffic, are prime locations for forklift and pedestrian accidents. Fortunately, Sentry Protection Products offers a solution: the Collision Sentry.

This innovative collision warning system acts as a guardian at blind corners, significantly reducing the risk of accidents. Let's delve into how the Collision Sentry works and the benefits it offers for your warehouse safety.

Guardian of the Blind Corner: How Collision Sentry Works

The Collision Sentry is a self-powered proximity warning system. Here's a breakdown of its operation:

  • Strategic Placement: The Collision Sentry is typically mounted at the apex of a blind corner, where a forklift or pedestrian might not see oncoming traffic.

  • Motion Detection: The Sentry utilizes passive infrared (PIR) motion sensors. These sensors detect heat signatures, which means they can identify approaching people or forklifts even in low-light conditions.

  • Dual-Zone Detection: For enhanced reliability, the Collision Sentry features two independent detection zones. An approaching forklift or pedestrian needs to be within range of both zones for the alarm to activate. This prevents false alarms triggered by minor movements outside the critical intersection area.

  • Visual and Audible Alerts: When motion is detected in both zones simultaneously, the Collision Sentry springs into action. A bright LED strobe light illuminates, grabbing attention and alerting approaching traffic of a potential collision. Additionally, a loud and distinctive alarm sounds, providing an unmistakable auditory warning.

  • Easy Installation: The Collision Sentry is designed for user-friendly installation. Many models come with integrated magnets, allowing for quick attachment to metal surfaces at blind corners. For non-metallic surfaces, Sentry Protection Products offers optional mounting brackets.

The Benefits of Collision Sentry for Your Warehouse

Implementing Collision Sentry in your warehouse offers a multitude of advantages:

  • Peace of Mind: Knowing that a safeguard is in place promotes a safer work environment for your employees. Reduced anxiety about blind corner collisions can lead to increased focus and productivity.

  • Inventory Protection: Collisions can damage not only forklifts but also the products they carry. The Collision Sentry helps prevent these costly mishaps, protecting your valuable inventory.

  • Reduced Downtime: Accidents lead to downtime for cleanup, repairs, and potential investigations. The Collision Sentry's proactive approach minimizes the likelihood of such disruptions, keeping your warehouse operations running smoothly.

  • Improved Compliance: Many warehouse safety regulations mandate measures to prevent blind corner accidents. The Collision Sentry can help your facility adhere to these regulations and avoid potential citations.
