Loading dock equipment and workers are both at risk when levelers are being serviced. Fork trucks can accidentally drive onto a raised leveler or into the side, causing damage and injury. The Safe-T-Strut System is designed to help prevent the collapse of dock levelers undergoing maintenance.
Stands Firm – Unique through-the-lip extension keeps strut in place, even if hydraulic dock leveler is raised to its maximum height. Capable of withstanding a 10,000 lb. (45 kN) fork truck driving up half the length of a raised leveler at 3-4 mph (4-5 km/h).
Built to “Earthquake” Design Standard – Remains in position to endure the violent rocking motion produced when a 10,000 lb. fork truck collides with the side of a raised leveler at 3-4 mph (4-5 km/h).
Helps Comply with OSHA Regulations – For added safety, the system offers lockout capability – can be easily padlocked to prevent removal.
Provides Easy, Cost Effective Protection – Installation is quick, operation is simple and cost is affordable.
