Studies show that 10 to 25 percent of all industrial accidents occur at or around the loading dock. To address this danger, the Rite-Hite Aftermarket Corp. offers the new Door Dok-Guardian Safety Barrier. The Door Dok-Guardian provides a barrier that stretches across the door to help prevent fork trucks from traveling through closed dock doors.
The Door Dok-Guardian consists of a 6-inch-high heavy-duty nylon strap that is mounted to a Universal GX-4000 bottom sectional door panel. It travels with the door when it is opened or closed. When the dock door is closed, the heavy-duty strapping and steel impact brackets slide into Warden door guards and provide a yellow visible barrier that can stop a 10,000-pound fork truck traveling at 3 to 4 mph.
The safety yellow painted steel Warden door guards are made of 1/4-inch steel and are positioned in front of the sectional door tracks to help minimize door track damage. When the door is hit, the heavy-duty strap absorbs the impact and the force is transferred to the steel Wardens, preventing a serious loading dock accident. The barrier system can be retrofitted to most sectional doors.
