Prolec Safety Systems Unveils:


Game-changer "One Screen" Solution Redefining Safety and Productivity (2D) in Construction.

Meeting Industry Demands:

In response to the time-sensitive nature of the construction sector, Prolec, Europe's largest manufacturer of plant safety equipment, is set to make waves once again. Just over a year ago, Kinshofer's acquisition of Prolec marked a significant move in the industry. Today, Prolec is poised to take the construction industry by surprise once again. In a remarkable initiative, Prolec will become the first in the industry to seamlessly combine Safety and 2D Guidance on a single screen.

Overview of Prolec Safety Systems:

For the past 40 years, Prolec Safety Systems has been dedicated to engineering cutting-edge solutions that prioritise safety without compromising on productivity. Our unwavering commitment to innovation, reliability, and customer satisfaction has led us to become a trusted leader in the industry. Prolec Safety Systems integrates Height and Slew Limiters with RCI (Rated Capacity Indicators) for comprehensive safety control. Our safety systems are designed to ensure operators maintain control within defined parameters, setting the standard for reliable and precise plant safety solutions.

A Shift in Dynamics:

Prolec Safety Systems brings forth a transformative shift, replacing the complexities of dual screens with an all-encompassing solution. Imagine seamlessly integrating safety and productivity with automatic stops to prevent costly damages and cutting-edge 2D guidance.

Overview of Prolec 2D Guidance:

Prolec 2D Guidance, a state-of-the-art technology, enhances construction productivity with unparalleled precision. The system provides real-time 2D guidance, empowering operators to achieve optimal digging accuracy. Prolec 2D Guidance minimises errors and enhances efficiency, reducing project timelines and costs, making it an indispensable tool for construction professionals aiming for unmatched precision.

Global Debut:

Prolec 2D Guidance Options for PME400 and PME500

We are thrilled to announce the global debut of our groundbreaking integration that took place on the 6th of February. Kinshofer Prolec will become the first in the industry to seamlessly combine Safety and 2D Guidance on a single screen. This revolutionary system will be available for firsthand experience at INTERMAT in Paris. Prolec 2D Guidance options include:

  1. 2D Essentials (app only)
  2. 2D Standard (bucket sensor + pitch and roll)

Unparalleled Advantages:

  • Precision digging with hazard avoidance

  • Automatic grade checking

  • Rework cost elimination

  • Swift and straightforward installation

  • Reduced co-worker risk

  • Industry-leading screen for optimal ease

  • Plug and play - no antenna required

  • Uncompromising safety with a dedicated safety ECU

Why Prolec Stands Out:

Prolec PME Safety and 2D add-in solution removes the need for moving hardware between machines. It utilises existing, securely anchored hardware for safety across all tasks, offering a cost-effective choice. This shift ensures safety and productivity seamlessly integrate, going beyond a checkbox approach. The system halts the machine automatically when hazard thresholds are reached, ensuring an unprecedented level of safety for both personnel and infrastructure.

Endorsement from CTA Training Academy:
