TT-944: Safety Enhancements

Tech Tip-944
Models Affected: All

To continually promote warehouse safety, BHS now provides Structural Barrier Rail (SBR) and High Visibility Flags on track End Stops. When properly placed, the BHS SBR serves to protect personnel in walkways, racking, modular offices, and more from moving equipment. High Visibility Flags, mounted to track End Stops, assist equipment operators with safe maneuvering within the battery room.


The BHS SBR is available in 18” high single rail and 42” high double rail configurations which can be mixed and matched to meet any application requirements. The rails lift out for easy removal when access is required and are available in 4’, 5’, 6’, 7’, and 8’ spans from post centers.

Effective April 2013, all BHS track End Stops (SGT-A-ES), for Operator Aboard Battery Extractor (BE) Systems, will include a High Visibility Flag mounted directly to the End Stops. The flags will also be available as an option for Gantry Crane System End Stops (TRK-ES). The High Visibility Flags will increase operator awareness of the End Stop locations, preventing damage to equipment and End Stops due to repeated contact. The flags also increase visibility for pedestrians, eliminating a potential trip hazard. Kits are available for adding the High Visibility Flags to existing End Stops. SGT-A-ES stops for BE systems will require kit part # 80992006. Gantry track End Stops (TRK-ES and TRK-ES-RB) will require kit #80992007.
