Safety Barrier Lips
Kelley pit-mounted, powered dock levelers can be equipped with an optional safety barrier lip that provides a full-time 5-inch (127 mm) solid steel vertical barrier to prevent accidental forklift roll-off. The safety barrier lip is designed to be one of the strongest in the industry, capable of stopping a 10,000 lbs (4,536 kg) load at 4 mph (6.44 km).
Smart Design Advantages:
- In the stored position, the leveler lip extends above the deck, providing a full-time steel barrier.
- In the extended position, the lip remains flush with the leveler deck.
- In a below loading dock application, the safety barrier lip prevents a forklift’s front wheels from accidentally rolling off the leveler.
