What is all the hype about this CZT?
CZT stands for Crumple Zone Technology. This is a unique designed feature of the Forksafe Steel Barrier system.
When a moving vehicle comes into contact with a stationary barrier, something needs to absorb the impact. Forklifts are usually solid steel and very heavy, and unlike cars, they do not have ‘crumple zones.’
Therefore, the barrier needs to absorb the energy of the impact. The Forksafe system features a unique CZT technology with a ‘crumple zone’ near the base of the post which absorbs the impact & bends at a set point & with a high force of impact. This normally means that the impacted upright post only needs to be replaced & not a complete run of barrier. Severe impact also often causes the concrete floor to ‘blow out’ with standard steel barrier, leaving it damaged and needing not only replacement of the barrier but also expensive repairs to the floor & floor coatings etc.
Furthermore, steel barrier systems without CZT often cause ‘impact shock’ to the forklift driver.
It’s all about the long-term solution for your facility.
