Safety is always a priority in the design and installation of our products – which is why we offer multiple features to ensure protection for employees and items.
Safety has been paramount in Spacesaver’s engineering from the very beginning. As a result, we’ve pioneered virtually every significant safety feature in the industry. Any of our systems can be designed to close and lock when not in use. All of our powered systems—many of which can also be programmed for controlled, selective access—are UL system listed and CSA approved.
The safety system you choose will depend upon your individual customer’s needs, the type of controls selected and whether the system will be accessed by the general public or restricted to trained personnel. We urge you to let us do a customer needs analysis and make recommendations for your individual projects.
Spacesaver’s safety sweep provides full aisle protection for people and objects in the open aisles of high-density mobile storage systems by automatically stopping carriage movement upon contact with an obstacle.
In addition to a floor-level safety sweep, your system may be equipped with one or more of the following safety options:
If a person enters a closing aisle, cross-aisle sensors mounted 20 inches (508 mm) up from the carriage base stop the system from moving.
By projecting multiple infrared photoelectric beams across an open aisle the full length of the carriage, the Zero Force Sensor (ZFS®) system detects a person’s entry into a moving aisle or presence in an open aisle and automatically locks down carriage movement.
Depending on your needs, we offer three modes of operation for optimum ease of use, security, safety, and accessibility: manual, mechanical-assist, and powered controls.
