Whether you’re powering a forklift or other industrial machinery used in your plant or warehouse that use the same motive power batteries and chargers, it’s important to buy superior products that match your specific needs, budget and equipment. To determine the right battery or power source for your needs, we’ve put together a quick guide to types, making the choice, and getting what you need from a supplier. Barclay is proud to represent two of the top motive power companies, EnerSys and GNB.

Battery Watering Systems & Devices
To make your new or existing forklift battery virtually maintenance free, we recommend installing an automatic battery watering system and water level indicator light.
The benefits are:
- Weekly watering takes just one to two minutes.
- No user contact with the battery or vent caps.
- No safety equipment required (such as eye wash systems and protective gear).
- Narrow aisle trucks do not require removal of the battery for watering.
- Accidental overfilling, acid overflow and corrosion are eliminated.
- Achieve the maximum number of cycles and productivity.
- Optional water level indicator light further reduces maintenance and allows operators and management to easily monitor battery water levels at a glance.
Battery Charging Safety Accessories
Battery charging operations deal with some common hazards, such as burns and back injuries. But fortunately, there are many simple precautions that can be taken to combat these dangers.
The importance of safety cannot be overstated when handling an industrial battery. There are numerous safety procedures and guidelines to be followed. It is critical to be prepared for any accident. Every battery room should be equipped with the proper safety equipment. All employees should be trained to respond properly to all possible circumstances.
