Retrofit & Accessories

For greater safety, efficiency and comfort

With 85 standard series and over 6,000 standard equipment variations, Linde Material Handling has the right solution for every logistics task. However, the equipment requirements for forklift trucks and warehouse handling equipment may change over time, for instance due to new safety regulations, modified logistics processes, or the comfort requirements of operators who operate the trucks on a daily basis. In the majority of cases, a simple retrofit helps, for example, to adapt a forklift to the new requirements without an expensive conversion or to upgrade it to the latest state of the art. You can also provide the same equipment features uniformly for your entire fleet. Linde supplies the necessary retrofit solutions and accessories for the areas of safety, efficiency and comfort. For example, these include the Linde BlueSpot™ driving path warning device, components for the automatic recording and transmission of operating hours and a practical holder for smartphones.


There is no room for compromise when it comes to safety in the workplace. That's why Linde provides retrofit solutions from the visual warning signal through to the driver assistance system, which increase safety for operators and pedestrians in the plant. This also includes the Linde BlueSpot™ for improved visibility of approaching trucks, the Linde OrangeBelt for guaranteed fastening, and the Linde Speed Assist driver assistance system.

SpeedAssist stops speeders

Fast operation with a forklift truck means high productivity, but this must not be at the expense of safety in the workplace. Often, forklift operators are not even aware of their excessive speed. The SpeedAssist assistance system developed by Linde supports operators by automatically reducing their speed upon entry into the warehouse and production halls – in other words, wherever an adapted speed helps to prevent accidents. The range, sensitivity, and response time of modern radar sensors can be individually adapted to suit the surroundings and customer requirements. This ensures, for example, that the forklift does not inadvertently brake when travelling under bridges in outside areas. The Linde Speed Assist is easy to install, improves safety indoors, and maintains the customary high levels of efficiency of the forklift outdoors.
