Montel, a global leader of high-density mobile storage shelving system solutions for office, institutional and industrial applications, is pleased to introduce today SAFERAK®, its newly designed industrial mobile storage systems. Whether to increase storage capacity, or to make room for production by decreasing the space which is allocated to storage, SAFERAK® 16, 32 and 60 was developed specifically for industrial environments by maximizing the use of available space.

“Montel is very proud to introduce its new SAFERAK® industrial mobile storage systems,” explained Jerome Doucet, Vice President Sales & Marketing at Montel. “At Montel, we believe in performance and innovation. Engineered for performance, SAFERAK® 16, 32 and 60 sets new standards in terms of safety, productivity and reliability.”

In order to ensure that SAFERAK® is as safe as it is functional and reliable, Montel’s engineers worked closely with leading industrial safeguarding firms to develop and offer the latest safety technologies associated with industrial mobile storage systems. SAFERAK® now provides complete peace of mind. SAFERAK® is rated SAFE. Leading industrial safeguarding firms certified SAFERAK® according to the most stringent and demanding machine safety compliant regulations.

SAFERAK® supplied with LED Guard Technology™ adds a new dimension to safety by detecting the entire floor surface of an aisle. With its revolutionary LED Guard Technology™, SAFERAK® prevents any carriage movement when a forklift operator, a user or supply materials are located anywhere within the aisle. “As soon as, and as long as, a fork truck operator, user or pallet rack is in an aisle, the built-in total detection safeguard prevents the movement of any carriage,” mentioned Pascal Gagnon, Vice President Engineering at Montel. “Therefore, the personal safety of all users is safeguarded, as well as preventing any damage or dislodging of stored materials located within an open aisle.”

LED Guard Technology™ eliminates the requirement of a Reset button thereby eliminating the risk of another user deactivating the safety system while the original user or object is in the aisle. In addition, with LED Guard Technology™, there is no more uncertainty in determining the appropriate safeguard for your application, no more risk of omitting a critical safety component. No multiple beams across an open aisle which cannot detect the entire square footage of an aisle. No more partial coverage of the aisle potentially putting your personal safety and the integrity of your supply materials at risk.

Listed hereafter are SAFERAK® rated SAFE standard safety features:

  • System Entry Infrared Curtain (EN954-1 Category 4 Compliant)
  • Infrared Floor-Level Retractable Beams on Both Sides of the Aisles (EN954-1 Category 2 Compliant)
  • Readily Accessible Emergency Stop Buttons (EN954-1 Category 1 Compliant)
  • Machine Safety Relays (EN954-1)
  • Security Fences (ISO 13857 Compliant. Safety perimeter on the sides and rear of the system to be provided by the customer or by Montel)
  • Safeguards for All Mechanical Moving Components
  • Strobe Lights and Buzzers
