Dock Gate: prevent accidents at loading docks

  • Dock Gate, anticollision protection for loading docks

Loading and unloading at loading docks inevitably involves risks; that goes without saying. For example, employees are at risk of ending up in the loading bay before or after unloading, and a forklift driver’s steering error may damage the electric doors. Enter the Dock Gate!

A loading dock is always a hive of activity: warehouse staff use it for stacking, loading and unloading with the support of forklift trucks bringing in or taking out the goods. It is at times like this that employees may accidentally step into the void of the loading dock or lose their balance and fall in. Loading docks are made entirely out of concrete. It doesn't take much to be out of action for weeks after a fall like that.

These events are painful to the employee of course, but also to the employer, as a temporary replacement must be found and the logistics process often suffers delays. That is why prevention is better than cure. The Dock Gate is the perfect solution. This safety gate with a double rail system guarantees optimal fall protection and provides a very safe working environment to staff and pedestrians in loading zones.

The safety gate is equipped with a hydraulic auxiliary mechanism for smooth and easy operation. Its fall protection system also protects your doorways. The Dock Gate has few components, which reduces the installation time to a minimum.
