Depending on the model selected, each NARVA’s lamp projects an intense light to the front, sides, or in zones around the vehicles
The new models are designed to enhance worksite safety on a range of machines such as forklifts, elevated work platforms, excavators, loaders and tractors.
The red or blue light pattern clearly alerts people on the ground of their presence, particularly when equipment is changing direction, reversing or emerging from a hidden area.
“Statistics indicate many accidents in the workplace involve people working close to moving equipment, so anything that alerts them – especially those wearing ear defenders – to the nearby presence of a forklift or other machine, should be welcomed,.” says Tim Paterson, NARVA National Sales Manager for New Zealand distributor Griffiths Equipment.
“While reversing alarms are already mandated on forklifts and other equipment, in loud and busy working environments such as factories and warehouses, the alarm can be lost amid background noise, making a product like Safety Light extremely important.”
There are three options available in the new range: a 10-to-60V Blue Spot model; a 9-to-80V Red Safety Line Lamp; and a 9-to-64V Red Safety Zone Lamp. All models feature high power Cree 3W LEDs for maximum visibility.
The 10-to-60V Blue Spot safety lamp is perfect for use on forklifts, emitting a crisp, blue square-shaped light on the ground forward of the vehicle courtesy of its four LEDs.
The added visibility is particularly valuable to anyone crossing from a blind angle, such as in between racking or in front of an oncoming forklift, thus providing a continuous safe operating distance guide for pedestrians. This model is sealed to IP66, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
Red Safety Line
Designed for commercial transport, agricultural and mining vehicles and machines, the 9-to-80V Red Safety Line Lamp projects an intense, red ‘Do Not Cross’ safety line to one side of the vehicle courtesy of its six LEDs, alerting nearby pedestrians and other vehicles of ongoing operation and potential hazards.
Given that this light is more likely to be used predominantly in outdoor environments, it’s rated to IP66 and IP67 for improved weatherproofing.
Red Safety Zone
The 9-to-64V Red Safety Zone Lamp is fitted with 12 powerful LEDs, making it a suitable for construction, quarrying and forestry equipment, such as excavators and loading vehicles, where it can clearly identify danger zones around the machine.
For added longevity in tougher conditions, both the 9-to-80V Red Safety Line Lamp and 9-to-64V Red Safety Zone Lamp models are vibration tested to 7G, with the latter model also fully sealed and waterproof to IP68 and IP69K, making it ideal for the toughest off-highway environments.
The new lamps feature a low profile and compact design and benefit from a low current draw. All models are backed by a five-year LED warranty.
All three of the new lamps are impact-resistant thanks to their aluminium die-cast and powder-coated housing and polycarbonate lens. Each model is supplied with stainless steel brackets for easy fitting.
