Additional Dock Equipment
Light Communication System (LCS)
Light Communication System is an easy to use, dependable, and cost-effective lighting system that quickly establishes a clear line of communication between truck driver and dock personnel thus reducing the risk of accidents at the loading dock.
The LCS uses flashing red and green lights both inside and outside the building that always flash in opposing mode to inform both truck driver and forklift operator of the status of the loading or unloading operation.
Light Communication System can be purchased utilizing either manual or automatic activation. The LCS can be integrated into a single control enclosure with your hydraulic or air operated leveler and optional interconnections can assure proper sequence of operation enhancing safety and efficiency at the loading dock.
High Visibility Signs Are a Standard Part of the LCS Package
A set of standard read and mirrored image read signs that read ?Caution. Pull in or out on Green Only? are provided as an added measure of safety with the LCS communication system.
Exterior Light System Is Designed for Maximum Durability and Visibility
Exterior polypropylene housing will not rust, pit or corrode like similar metal units. The shallow depth of the unit helps to protect from damage from incoming trailers. A yellow housing is highly visible and the usage of integral eyebrow-type sun visors over the red/green lights creates extended visibility.
Two Means to Activate the LCS Provides You With a Maximum Flexibility in Design
The standard activation is manually via a flip switch activated by the dock attendant on the interior control panel. Usage of an optional solid state sensor can make your light activation automatic.
A means to Safely Communicate Trailer Positioning That Is Cost Effective Yet Dependable
Usage of inside and outside red and green lights that are always in an opposing mode can inform your truck drivers and dock attendants the status of loading and unloading. They come complete with safety signs.
Bumpers – Top in Class, Best Warranty
Prevent Dock Destruction with virtually indestructible Nytrex material: the specially formulated nylon based material engineered for maximum loading dock protection!
Nytrex Slider bumpers move with the trailer!
Premature wear on the face of the bumper is prevented with Nytrex Sliders because the Nytrex core moves up and down with the action of the trailer. This unique feature uses no complex mechanisms and gives IronGuard the confidence to extend product warranties, up to 6 years!
Just Flip It for up to 2 times the life!
Busy loading docks often find bumpers repeatedly impacted in only a small, consistent area: for example, the top 6′. Dock bumpers typically wear out faster in these spots. Nytrex dock bumpers are easy to ?flip? and offer up to 2 times the life because a new impact surface is created with each flip . Choose the model to best suit your needs.
Sturdy bumpers. Safe protection. Solid investment.
