Warehouse Entry Gates
Helps to protect pedestrians from forklift traffic at warehouse entry points
AisleCop® isn't only for forklift aisle crossings.
It is also utilized to help control pedestrian traffic flow at warehouse entry points. These are typically blind spots for individuals leaving an office, break area, or another part of an industrial facility and entering an area where forklifts or other industrial traffic is present.
Typically, this involves a single gate since there is not always an aisle to cross. The pedestrian may go along the flow of a forklift aisle, into an in-plant office, to a production area, etc. The gate is there to protect pedestrians in a non-crossing situation.
AisleCop® Warehouse Safety Gate Operation
- Automated entry gates scan the forklift aisle in any defined configuration needed and will open the pedestrian gate only if the area is clear of industrial traffic. If there are forklifts or other traffic present, the gate remains closed. If the area is clear, the gate opens for the pedestrian and closes after a predefined amount of time.
- In a manual setup, this gate serves to slow and focus the pedestrian by forcing her to stop, press a button and wait for the gate to open. A manual entry gate doesn't scan for forklift traffic, but it does have a very visible stoplight, warning lights, and/or audible alarms that a pedestrian is in the area. Once the gate opens, it will stay open for a defined period of time and then close on its own.
In both types of warehouse entry gates, the push button is easily reachable so that entry and exit is possible from either side. Both can be paired with boom arm gates to further enhance the visibility for forklift drivers.
