Stopping a 4500 kg forklift truck moving at speeds of up to 4 mph, the heavy-duty Dok-Guardian Safety Barrier from Caljan Rite-Hite effectively protects your employees and your equipment with little or no damage to the barrier itself. Vacant loading docks create a dangerous drop of more than one meter.
The Dok-Guardian safety barrier effectively barricades this opening, preventing dock personnel – and in particular those driving fork lift trucks – from falling over the edge. The brutality of this dangerous drop-off is often recognised only after it is too late and a serious accident has happened. Unfortunately the number of people killed each year in the UK falling from vehicles and moving equipment has risen during the last three years by 50%. Additionally, 52 people were critically injured in 2008/9 in connection with forklift truck accidents (source: HSC national statistics).
Other Safety Barriers in our programme, include strap barriers and curtains to partition areas in the workarea. These can be easily removed on a temporary basis for unobstructed access to the area giving flexibility and the ability to relocate barriers at minimal cost.

Marcel De Kelver Senior Supervisor "Caljan boom conveyors are more robust than those made by competitors. The meantime between failure is exceptional. I can't remember any major problems since the first were installed here in 2003."
