The Dock Barrier from Boplan (Suwanee, GA) is the latest member in the range of polymer safety products. It is based on two heavy duty bollards, connected by two horizontal tubes. When loading a truck, the Dock Barrier is opened and acts as robust protection against damage to door tracks (the most vulnerable part of industrial doors). When done loading, the operator closes the Dock Barrier, at which point it acts as fall protection, keeping operators from falling off the dock.
The Dock Barrier is the first polymer barrier to comply to OSHA standards for elevated platforms and is perfect for use in distribution centers and other industrial facilities. It will protect openings up to 10 feet and, due to the hidden soft close system, it will take an impact.
