About Prolec

Safety solutions and precision digging with hazard avoidance.

Welcome to Prolec Safety Systems, Europe's Largest Manufacturer of Plant Safety Systems!

Our Journey:

With a legacy spanning over four decades, Prolec Safety Systems has been at the forefront of revolutionising safety in the construction and plant industry. Established in 1982 our journey began with a vision to transform worksites into safer environments for workers and machines alike.


40 Years of Excellence:

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.

Europe’s Largest Manufacturer:

Today, we proudly stand as Europe’s Largest Manufacturer of Plant Safety Systems. This achievement is a testament to the hard work and dedication of our passionate team, as well as the trust our valued customers place in us. We continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible in safety technology, setting new standards for the industry to follow.

The Role of Safety Systems:

At Prolec Safety Systems, our core mission is to create a safer working environment for everyone involved in construction and plant operations. Our range of advanced safety systems includes:

Height Limiters: Prevent accidents caused by equipment colliding with overhead obstacles. Our height limiters ensure that machinery operates within safe vertical parameters, reducing the risk of collisions and associated damages.

Slew Limiters: Enhance operator awareness and prevent machinery from operating in potentially hazardous positions. Our slew limiters monitor and control the rotational movement of equipment, reducing the risk of accidental collisions.

Rated Capacity Indicators (RCI): Our RCI systems play a vital role in maintaining safe working conditions by providing real-time feedback on the load and stability of equipment. This ensures that operators stay within safe load limits, minimising the risk of tipping or overloading.

Demolition Stability Monitor: Specifically designed for demolition applications, our stability monitor assesses and maintains the stability of machinery during complex and high-risk demolition operations. This innovative system enhances safety by preventing accidents related to instability.

Dredging Guidance Systems: For dredging operations, our guidance systems enable precise control and positioning of dredging equipment, optimizing efficiency while ensuring accurate operations in water environments.


Benefits to Construction Industry:

Our safety systems have made a profound impact on the construction industry by significantly reducing accidents, downtime, and repair costs. By integrating our solutions into various equipment, construction companies have experienced:

Enhanced Safety: Minimise the risk of collisions, rollovers, and other accidents, protecting both operators and bystanders.

Increased Productivity: Our safety systems empower operators to work more confidently and efficiently, knowing that they are backed by state-of-the-art safety technology. Additionally, our solutions allow for the use of larger machines in constrained environments, such as working alongside active rail lines. Enabled boundaries ensure that machine and excavator arm reach is restricted, enhancing safety and productivity simultaneously.

Cost Savings: Reducing accidents and equipment damages translates to substantial cost savings for construction companies, making projects more financially viable.


Joining the Kinshofer Family:

In late 2022, Prolec Safety Systems reached a significant milestone by becoming a part of the Kinshofer Group. Kinshofer is an international leader in excavator attachments, and this strategic acquisition was aimed at enhancing Kinshofer’s portfolio of equipment for the plant industry. This partnership allows us to leverage Kinshofer’s global presence and resources, further driving innovation and expanding our reach to benefit even more customers worldwide.


Continuing the Legacy:

As we continue our journey under the Kinshofer Group, we remain steadfast in our commitment to advancing safety technology in the construction and plant industry. Our legacy of innovation, expertise, and dedication drives us to push boundaries, set new benchmarks, and make worksites safer for generations to come.

Thank you for choosing Prolec Safety Systems as your partner in safety and productivity. Together, we build a safer tomorrow.
