Rite-Hite Aftermarket Corp.’s Door Dok-Guardian is designed to increase loading dock safety by helping to prevent fork trucks from traveling through closed dock doors. The 6-inch-high heavy-duty nylon strap can be mounted to a bottom sectional door panel and travels with the door when it is opened or closed to help prevent material-handling equipment from traveling off the dock.

When the dock door is closed, the heavy-duty strapping and steel impact brackets slide into door guards. In the closed door position, the Door Dok-Guardian provides a yellow visible barrier that can stop a 10,000-pound fork truck traveling at 3 to 4 mph, while also providing sectional door track protection, according to Rite-Hite.

The safety-yellow painted-steel door guards are made of 1/4-inch steel and are positioned in front of the sectional door tracks to help minimize door track damage. When the door is impacted, the heavy-duty strap absorbs the impact, and the force is transferred to the steel doors, the company says. When the dock door is opened, the Door Dok-Guardian travels with the door for unobstructed loading or unloading.
