Linde design minimises obstructions to the operator’s view, helping to avoid damage to racking, trucks and goods while reducing work stress, and maximising productivity and equipment life.
Available solutions include an overhead guard with panoramic view featuring an armoured glass roof, overhead tilt cylinders, slimmer mast profiles and a surround view camera system. See below for an overview of our current range of structural safety solutions.
Certain Linde forklifts come with a unique panoramic view above the operator's head. This is achieved by having the robust overhead guard connected laterally to the reinforced tilt cylinders, eliminating the need for the A-pillar.
With the exception of the visibility-optimised mast, this concept offers the driver a largely unrestricted view of the load and working environment, even when storing and retrieving at height. An optional armored glass roof can provide a clear view upwards.
These provide better mast stability and force distribution, which in turn allows smaller mast profiles for increased visibility and safety. Plus, by positioning them away from the main load handling area, we can ensure they encounter less damage, which means cost savings for you.
As the overhead tilt cylinders are located at the top of the overhead guard, we’re able to remove obstructions and prioritise driver comfort by increasing legroom. This enables safe and easy mounting and dismounting for the operator.
Thanks to the repositioning of the overhead tilt cylinders, we’re able to incorporate slimmer mast profiles aiding in outstanding visibility for the forklift operator.
This camera system eliminates all blind spots, providing a 360 degree view of the forklift’s surroundings. Featuring picture-in-picture function where fields of vision can be individually adjusted, as well as dynamic adjustment of the image depending on driving direction.
Available for all counterbalanced models with a load capacity of 4 tonnes or more.
Forklift trucks and warehouse trucks from Linde Material Handling are fitted as standard with numerous features which increase both active and passive safety in the warehouse, thus preventing forklift accidents
The operator’s workplace is designed so that their entire body stays within the contours of the truck, while at the same time allowing them to keep an eye on their surrounding environment. With all trucks, Linde attaches great importance to clear visibility for the operator.
A key performance feature of Linde forklift trucks is the safe handling of heavy loads. For example, the overhead tilt cylinders on the electric and IC trucks are attached to the rear of the stable roof and frame structure. The longer lever length makes the mast even more stable and results in less swinging when stacking at high lifting heights. This allows the operator to work more precisely, quickly and – above all – more safely. The design also features slimmer mast profiles, which improves visibility.
With ergonomic working conditions, Linde Material Handling ensures that operators can work safely and without becoming fatigued. Ergonomic working conditions are a central requirement for fatigue-free and therefore safe working. Linde attaches great importance to giving employees the best possible protection from harmful vibrations and jolts. Decoupled drive and steering axles and decoupled operator workstations are effective technology solutions that ensure maximum operating comfort in Linde industrial trucks, thus improving the operator’s concentration.
