Blue Giant – Xtra Dock Safety

Blue Giant – Xtra Dock Safety

Blue Giant Logo

Blue Giant’s Xtra Dock Safety (XDS) prevents forklift roll-off and overheard door damage at the loading dock. Its introduction into the market in 2000, was the only product that provided to the two-in-one combination of dock-leveler and safety guard. Today, it remains at the forefront of dock safety technology. In theory, a loading dock’s overhead door should remain closed when loading or unloading is not taking place. However, doors are often left open while the dock leveler is parked, either to let air flow in or get rid of noxious air that has built-up throughout the day. When the XDS is parked in position the Door and Dock Guard sits 7 ½” (191 mm) above ground level, deterring accidental forklift roll-off. When the door is closed, the DDG remains in place, protecting it from impact damage resulting in security risk and expensive downtime.
