The APS Dock Barrier's lower impact barrier bar is constructed of 9/16"-thick steel cable inside a flexible fiberglass rail that is capable of stopping a 10,000 lb fork truck moving at 4 mph. The highly visible yellow nylon webbing provides an additional visual barrier at the dock.
The APS Dock Impact Barrier is a manually operated gate style barrier. When dock use is required, the APS Dock Impact Barrier is opened by releasing the latch and lifting the gate into an upright position with very little effort
The APS Dock Impact Barrier can reduce the occurrence of:
- Accidents due to fork lift, pallet jacks or pedestrians falling off dock when door is open.
- Damage to equipment, load, door panels and door track when door is closed.
