XDS - Extra Dock Safety

PUTTING SAFETY UP FRONT. WHERE YOU NEED IT.

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 dock.

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!
