Here at Laserglow, we work with our customers to develop cutting edge solutions to enhance awareness thereby reducing near-misses and improving overall safety.

    Painting/Taping vs. Virtual Illumination of Floor Lines

    Every factory, warehouse, or loading dock has heavy machinery working in close proximity to people. A major challenge for every facility is to ensure employee safety when around this machinery, whether it be forklifts, tuggers, or cranes etc.


    The typical solution has been to use paint or tape to demarcate walkways that are safe for pedestrian use. For busy intersections, painted signs or stickers are often used to indicate a hazard. However, these traditional techniques:
    • - Incurs overtime or increased costs for hiring third parties to paint / tape these zones
    • - Requires constant upkeep and maintenance as paint/ tape degrades rapidly in busy environments
    • - Results in lost revenue and productivity due to facility shut downs for maintenance
    • - Reduces safety between paintings/tapings as visibility of safety zones diminishes
    • - Results in lost revenue and productivity due to facility shut downs for maintenance

    • Laserglow’s Hazard Zone Projection Systems use LEDs and Lasers to replace painted or taped lines, as well as static stickered signage. These virtual projection systems are:
      • - Easy to install and virtually maintenance free – you set them and forget them
      • - Highly Durable - No wear and tear from foot traffic.
      • - Cost Effective - Eliminates the need for repainting or purchasing new safety labels.
      • - Ultra-Visible - Attracts more attention because it is an active projection.
      • - Easily interchangeable - Simply switch out the image projection lens when you need to project new signage
