Safety award win for Linde fork lift trucks

Apr 28, 2014
Linde Material Handling has won the safety award for its R14-R20 Reach Truck range in this year’s Fork Lift Truck Association Awards for Excellence 2014.

The annual awards represent the industry's foremost recognition of engineering and design excellence. The new generation range, which was launched by Linde last year, received the award for its outstanding assortment of innovative safety solutions that have revolutionised operator safety, comfort and productivity.

Linde’s warehouse product manager, Jana Vitkova said, “We are extremely happy to have won the Safety Award for the R14-R20 reach trucks, this award win is a testament to the innovative product development and safety consciousness that we have continued to show throughout 2014.”

The range boasts a high-visibility, end-to-end, panoramic toughened glass roof, which aims to protect the operator from falling objects as well as providing additional visibility for faster and safer load handling. To further improve safety, the range also offers a side hoop guard at shoulder height to provide better protection for the operator and a hydraulically actuated load wheel drum and automatic electric holding brakes fitted as standard offering superb brake performance.
