Forklift lights

More than half of all forklifts are used indoors, regularly in dimly lit warehouses filled with tall racks and other obstructions. To maximise safety, forklifts need to be easy to recognise and the operators must be able to see clearly. This is why forklift safety lights are absolutely essential.

At TVH, we offer a wide range of lights that increase safety for forklifts and the people working near them. Flashing beacons are a popular way to maximise visibility. These eye-catching safety lights quickly and easily inform people that a forklift is in use. Bluespot lights project a blue warning spot on the ground, to make sure that pedestrians and other drivers see the warning light before they even see the forklift. Projection warning lights communicate quickly and easily, letting people know which direction the forklift is moving in and highlighting danger zones around the machine. 

Discover our extensive range of forklift lights

At TVH, we offer a huge range of safety lights and essential lights for forklifts: rear lights, front lights, indicator lights, number-plate lights, flashing beacons, work lights, LED strips and projection warning lights … you name it, we have it.

Forklift lights are divided into two main categories: primary lights and secondary lights.

Primary forklift lights

Primary forklift lights are essential lights that every machine needs, for example, rear lights, front lights, marker lights, license plate lights and indicator lights. These lights are mandatory for forklifts that are used on public roads. In addition, it’s an important safety feature for all other forklifts. They protect pedestrians and operators and help to prevent accidents.

Need to use a lift truck on public roads? Then the forklift lights must be marked as ‘E-approved’ to meet legal requirements. Not sure what type of forklift lights you need? Read our blog to learn more.

Secondary forklift lights

Secondary forklift lights make working with forklifts as safe and easy as possible. They maximise safety and comfort for operators, pedestrians and other drivers. This category includes rotating and flashing beacons, work lights and projection safety lights, for example, the popular Bluespot. 

Rotating and flashing beacons warn pedestrians and other machine operators of the presence of a forklift. Work lights illuminate a work area and projection safety lights communicate clearly without making a sound. Read our blog to find out more.


Forklift safety lights prevent accidents. They increase visibility and illuminate blind spots. Our range of safety lights includes flashing beacons for attracting extra attention, and projection warning lights to easily communicate the direction a machine is travelling in, as well as outlining the danger zones around it.

  • Projection warning lights: Looking for a safe, yet silent way to warn people in the warehouse about the movements of forklifts? Communicate quickly and easily with these projection warning lights. Mounted on the forklift, these safety lights create visual warning signals for the people nearby. It’s easy to see which direction a forklift is moving in, so collisions, accidents and injuries are avoided. Check out the full range in this leaflet.
  • Rotating/flashing beacons: Rotating beacons and flashing lights make it easy to see where a forklift is in use. We offer rotating beacons and flashing lights that use different technologies: LED, xenon and halogen. Find out more here.


Forklift work lights illuminate a work area. They can be used anywhere off-road; it’s illegal to use them on public roads. We offer work lights with different technologies such as LED, halogen, xenon and incandescent.

They are available in different shapes: square, rectangular or round. Looking for extra light and visibility? Check out our LED strips. They are easy to install on a forklift, or anywhere else.

LED work lights are split up into 2 types:

  • Flood beam: illuminates a wide area over a short distance
  • Spot beam: illuminates a long, narrow area over a longer distance. The intensity of light is higher in comparison with a flood beam light.

The light output of LED work lights is indicated in a value of lumen. The flood beam work light is most common and most used. If a work light has a spot beam or is available in both versions, this will be mentioned in the title or specifications. In all other situations the light shown will have a flood beam.
