At Wrightfield, we manufacture a comprehensive range of perimeter protection solutions. We discuss this very topic in further detail in the following post – read on for more information.

When specifying perimeter protection bollards for forklifts, there are a few key things to consider:

  1. Load rating: Bollards must be able to withstand the weight and impact of a forklift. Make sure that the bollards you specify have a load rating that meets the requirements for the space and the type of forklifts that will be used.
  2. Durability: Bollards must be able to withstand the wear and tear of regular forklift traffic. Consider materials that are durable, long-lasting, and able to withstand impact and corrosion.
  3. Reflectivity: Consider the reflectivity of the bollards. Forklifts operate in low light conditions, so reflective bollards can improve visibility and reduce the risk of accidents.
  4. Height and spacing: The height and spacing of the bollards must be appropriate to protect the perimeter and also allow for the movement of the forklifts. Make sure that the height and spacing of the bollards meet the requirements for the space and the type of forklifts that will be used.
  5. Installation: Consider the ease of installation and maintenance of the bollards. Some bollards can be installed with minimal disruption to the facility, while others may require more extensive installation.
  6. Cost: The cost of bollards can vary depending on the material and design. Consider the cost and choose a bollard that fits within your budget while meeting all the safety requirements.
  7. Flexibility: Depending on your facility, it may be useful to have bollards that can be removed or folded down when not in use. This can improve the flexibility of the bollards and allow for easier movement of forklifts.

What is Perimeter Protection?

Protection around the perimeter is any built fortification that can, amongst other abilities, help to keep out intruders of an area, contain an area and protect an area or object. The security solutions are commonly used in private car parks, warehouses and lampposts.
