The safety barriers have the function of preventing possible falls both of operators and pallet trucks or forklifts in the loading dock without door.
Combined with a sectional door, it allows to air out the area of the docks keeping safety and protecting the equipment from possible impacts. Given the incline between the dock and the ground, in terms of accident containment a physical barrier is perfect. In addition, it also protects other equipment from possible impacts.
This barrier, suitable for any type of dock and loading bay, is installed in front of the dock leveller to protect the outer gap of the dock. Depending on the available height in the loading dock, its rising will be vertical or horizontal. It can be manual or motorized and manufactured in galvanized steel with yellow RAL lacquered finish.
When, in a warehouse, the task of loading and unloading merchandise is done from a considerable height and by forklifts like mezzanines, a double safety barrier is the most effective solution to keep workers protected throughout the process. It acts as a protective railing, creating a secure closed area. The double barrier can be manual or automatic.
