The barrier is stored thirty inches above floor level preventing forklift passage and protecting the door. The lowered barrier is designed to withstand an impact force of over 10,000 pounds moving at four miles per hour. When required, the forklift operator raises the gate either by push button or manually, depending on model. Available integration systems can detect and prevent unsafe conditions by removing power to controls and/or sounding an alarm.
When passage is no longer required the operator lowers the gate.
The NORDOCK® Safety Barrier Gate is mounted to the building floor by means of galvanized concrete wedge anchors. The operator, limits, push button and optional components are installed in accordance with instructions contained in the installation and owner’s manual.
Various equipment integration systems are available to provide a safe sequence of operations.
The barrier gate, door, dock leveler, vehicle restraint and communication lights can all be integrated to ensure an optimum safety system.
NORDOCK® guarantees that the FALL-STOP™ Series Safety Barrier Gates will perform as described and to the full satisfaction of the purchaser for one-year from date of receipt.
