PUTTING SAFETY UP FRONT. WHERE YOU NEED
Prevent forklift roll-off and
overhead door damage at your loading dock. If avoiding accidents, minimizing
downtime and reducing costly repairs is a priority at your facility, the XDS -
EXTRA DOCK SAFETY SERIES from Blue Giant is the protection you need. A Blue
Giant Dock Leveler equipped with the DOOR & DOCK GUARD can greatly improve
the overall safety and efficiency of your loading dock area.
The DOOR & DOCK GUARD is
designed to serve two purposes. The raised safety guard protects forklifts from
dangers of the "drop-zone" when the overhead door is open and also acts a
pallet stop to guard overhead door panels and tracks from regular impact damage
when the door is closed.
Built to withstand forklift
impact, the guard has been tested to stop 10,000 lbs. rolling loads at speeds
up to 4 MPH. When the highly visible guard is in the upright position, the
added ANSI approved yellow safety striping provides a visual warning to the
forklift operator to stay clear. Plus, the guard is mounted 22" from the face
of the deck plate. Why? In addition to protecting the overhead door and tracks
when the door is closed, this position provides an extra margin of safety from
the "drop-zone," unlike protective barriers positioned right at the edge of the
The guard is automatically
activated when the dock is in or returned to the cross-traffic position and
deactivated automatically during the dock cycle or when the dock is in use. A
supervisor key switch override with warning light, located on the dock leveler
master panel, allows the dock attendant to temporarily override the barrier for
hand bombing cargo - a usual requirement when small delivery vans are present.
When the dock leveler is in use, the guard lies flat or flush with the deck
surface. This allows smooth, unobstructed flow of traffic during load
transfers. Whether the dock leveler is servicing trucks above or below level,
the guard is out of the way. This is especially critical when tail or end
loading is required - a Blue Giant® advantage over other systems that
prevent the forklift from lowering pallets right at the edge of the dock onto
the back of the tractor-trailer.
The DOOR & DOCK GUARD is
standard on the Blue Giant® XDS® - EXTRA DOCK SAFETY SERIES , featuring
the 'A' series fully- hydraulic I-beam dock leveler. This allows you to obtain
all the benefits of the DOOR & DOCK GUARD while selecting the right dock
leveler for your operation. For added protection from the other side of the
"drop-zone", you can also incorporate a Blue Giant® 'TL85' Safety Vehicle
Restraint to prevent trailer creep and unscheduled truck departures. The
ultimate and most complete extra dock-safety package.
The DOOR & DOCK GUARD from
Blue Giant®. What you want. When you want it. Where you need it most!
