Protective Equipment

The price of a new industrial vehicle can be staggering! Proper maintenance is vital to extending the life of your equipment. Proactive protection against minor impacts and collisions, scratches and dents can be relatively inexpensive and installed with minimal vehicle downtime. OEA Safeguard offers several types of protective equipment to keep your investment in top shape.

Bumper Guards

Forklift bumper guards are designed to protect your forks and forklifts from minor impacts. OEA Safeguard designed bumper guards to be used on the forklift bumper and on the shank of the fork. Adding guards to the shank of the forks offers additional protection to the fork heels from unsecured loads. Bumper guards are uniquely attached by magnets to the exterior of the vehicle — with no permanent modifications or holes required. Highly visible and universal, these bumper guards can be a welcome addition to any fleet looking for added protection.

Hydraulic Guards

Hydraulic components on a forklift truck can be easily damaged if a load shifts or contains sharp or protruding objects. Prevent costly damage and crippling vehicle downtime with Hydraulic Guards from OEA Safeguard. These heavy-duty guards are both easy and quick to install on a variety of carriages, offering effective protection to hydraulic hoses and other components. Reach out to one of our knowledgeable team members for more information on mounting these to your vehicle.

Fork Shields

The heel of a forklift fork is one of the most vulnerable places on the fork. Nicks, gouges and accidental impact can all cause stress cracks and greatly reduce the life of the fork.  A previous winner of Construction Equipment’s Top 100 New Products, easily mountable Fork Shields from OEA Safeguard can extend the life of your forklift forks — protecting against costly early replacement. Fork Shields are sold in pairs and available in three sizes to fit most standard forks.

In addition to our protective equipment, OEA Safeguard offers detection and warning solutions to minimize the risk of forklift-related accidents involving pedestrians and equipment in your facility.
