Find out the best signaling device to make them safe.
The external warehouse areas are often identified as access and maneuvering areas for vehicles during receiving and shipping operations, as maneuvering areas for vehicles inside the warehouse or as areas for installing automated systems for loading and unloading goods outside the warehouse.
All these elements are necessary to optimize the timing of loading and unloading goods, optimize the working hours, deal with the emergencies of shipment of products and have great advantages regarding safety for the operators who carry out these operations to avoid injuries on work and also to avoid damage to the stuff during operations.
Loading bays are the optimal solution for companies that have a large flow of goods. A correct design both of the loading docks and of the whole structure is essential to optimize company logistics. Each vehicle maneuver must be carried out easily and safety to prevent any type of accident at work.
Tline: the LED traffic light
The Tline led traffic lights are luminous indications to facilitate the maneuvers of vehicles entering and exiting from the loading bays. They are useful as they speed up the logistical flow and eliminate verbal exchanges between drivers and warehouse operators, increasing safety. The green light will indicate the possibility for the vehicle to dock at the loading point and start the loading / unloading operations, while in the red light it will be necessary to wait for the bay to be available for the next operation.
Acoustic and visual Signaling devices: a success story
An example of application is given by one of our customer in Sweden who, in one of his projects, inserted a TLINE 3 traffic light in each loading bay of the warehouse. When a truck is about to arrive the traffic light is green, to turn yellow when the vehicle approaches the bay itself. Only when the truck is positioned correctly at the gate the traffic light will turn red. The system uses sensors to measure the distance of the truck from the loading bay.
To increase safety at each door of the loading bay, the customer has also installed an amber SIR-E-LED that through light and sound advises that the door is moving, they installed also a FWL at the base of the gate that lights up when the door is moving.
