The Rite-Hite Aftermarket Corporation has introduced the GuardRite SB3 Barrier System, designed to make interior loading docks and other locations of a plant safer by defining and separating the areas. The system, designed for separating areas within interior loading docks and large work areas, is constructed from 6-inch-high nylon restraining straps. Its modular design allows the system to easily define large walkways and work areas in a plant.

The SB3 Barrier System, available in a 43-inch-high double-strap restraining system, comes with attachment and anchoring hardware. Prominent yellow 6-inch-tall straps are designed to provide high visibility while absorbing impacts from material handling equipment. Safety-yellow powder-coated 5-by-5-inch 3/16-inch steel posts provide restraining strap support and make a rugged barrier that is able to withstand a 10,000-pound fork truck traveling a 4 mph without damage to the system, according to Rite-Hite.

A manually operated storage system is designed to keep straps organized when access to the area is required. An 8-inch-high handle rotates to place straps on rollers that quickly and efficiently keep the restraining straps away from fork truck traffic, the company says. Available in a single post design, the GuardRite SB3 can be installed as a pedestrian barrier system that helps keep visitors or pedestrians out of areas that have fork truck traffic. The modular design of the system makes it easy to install and remove: Four 3/4-by-5 1/4-inch anchor bolts mount the posts to the plant floor.
