The Loading Dock safety gate provides fall protection in loading dock operations that consist of a tractor trailer backing up to an elevated section of the facility so material can be loaded and unloaded. When the trailer is in place, the safety gate is open and elevated dock area remains safe.
Once the truck drives away, barrier closes and the ledge at the end of the elevated loading dock. The model is the first loading dock safety gate that can be configured to automatically close and lock into place as truck drives away, and includes a feature that prevents the gate from opening if a truck is not present. To open, the Loading Dock safety gate rolls across the floor and compacts into the open position.
A hydraulic assist mechanism allows for easy, ergonomic operation. The locking mechanism is activated when the truck is in place at the dock, and released as the truck drives away, automatically closing the gate in a slow, controlled manner. With the gate closed, the employees are protected from falling from the dock ledge.
- The Loading Dock safety gate can be configured to automatically close and lock into place as the truck drives away.
- The gate also features a mechanism that prevents the gate from opening if a truck is not present.This forms a fall protection barrier for employees working on the dock, and does not rely on those employees to close the gate.
- With a compact design, the Loading Dock safety gate takes up a minimum amount of width in the dock and can fit in locations with limited height. The Loading Dock safety gate meets OSHA codes for fall protection.
