The new LED Countdown light communication system from Rite-Hite uses LED lights to let workers know exactly how much time there is before a high-speed door closes. Sometimes a few seconds can mean the difference between a serious accident and efficient operations.
Now standard with all Rite-Hite FasTrax High-Speed Doors, the LED Countdown works in conjunction with the door’s internal timers. When the door is approached, an up arrow will signal that the door is opening. A white box will appear when the door is in a fully open position.
This system is an alternative to – or can be the perfect complement to – high-speed doors that use clear plastic vision panels. LED Countdown timers are typically placed just outside of the door’s frame, but they can be set up anywhere that promotes the easiest visual for forklift operators and personnel.
LED Countdown joins a full Rite-Hite lineup of light communication devices, which includes LED Pre-Announce and LED Virtual Vision. All three communication devices can be retrofit to work with most Rite-Hite doors.
