Why Bollard Systems are Needed
If you have a loading dock, it’s very important to have safety bollards and loading dock safety barriers to protect your building when trucks back into the loading docks to load or unload products.
Bollard systems or dock barricades serve as an important safety barrier to prevent damage from a truck or forklift. They also are important for the driver of the truck. Bollard systems give the driver awareness of the width of the dock opening. This visual marker makes it much easier to align the truck bed opening to the dock opening.
In addition to the safety aspect of bollards, they’re also a good choice to guard the dock opening from being rammed by vehicles. Many times this is the method that thieves use while trying to steal from the warehouse. These bollards can easily be removed during regular operating hours.
Dock Barricades Protect Facilities and Employees
Loading docks can be dangerous to the building and dock as well as the people working on the loading dock. Safety bollards, and dock locks are a great option for the safety and security of your facility, dock workers, truck drivers, and employees. With safety bollards installed by Gem Dock & Door, you can be assured that they will protect your building from any damage and any workers from injury.
