New company offers fork lift safety and load protection range

Apr 18, 2018
With offices in the UK, USA, Canada and Australia, SumoSafe Global is a new company offering a range of products that significantly reduce damage to palletised loads during the lift truck handling process and make fork lift trucks safer to operate.

“The SumoSafe range includes a number of ingeniously simple yet highly innovative designs that make a real difference to any fork lift operator’s business – both in terms of safety and the cost savings that can be made by cutting or even eliminating product damage,” said SumoSafe’s co-founder, Simon Ross.

The SumoSafe range includes:

•  SumoSafefork - a radical new design of lift truck fork that takes traditional steel tines and encases the tip within a protective glove. Made from industrial grade polyurethane, the glove significantly limits the impact of a carelessly driven lift truck’s forks against a load. The results of independent industrial testing may be seen at and indicate a very short ROI;

•  SumoGlove – a variation on the SumoSafefork, SumoGloves are fitted to the tips of a lift truck’s existing forks quickly and easily. They are compatible with all common makes and size of fork lift tine; 

•  SumoVision – a system that, as its name implies, improves an operator’s forward visibility even when sight lines are obscured by a large bulky load;

•  SumoLevel - a new fork lift mast tilt indicator system designed to significantly reduce the accidental damage and associated safety risks that are often caused to a pallet, the load and the racking by a lift truck’s forks during the pallet picking and put-away process;

•  SumoBackbone – a protective device that can be retrofitted to any make or model of lift truck to minimize the risk of an operator suffering a serious spine or whip-lash injury in the event of his or her truck being hit from the rear by another fork lift or reversing into a stationary object.

 “The benefit to any organisation that installs SumoSafe technology will be quickly realised,” said Simon Ross. “They improve operational efficiency and workplace safety to such an extent that payback is almost immediate.”
