Rail Dock Safety Barrier

Our removable forklift safety barriers provide relentless personnel and forklift fall protection at loading docks, on rail sidings, and around equipment. These heavy-duty barriers are the only system that can be effortlessly lifted, moved, and stacked by forklifts — without requiring the operator to leave his seat to engage a lifting system and risk injury.  Enlisted by top rail shippers in the U.S., these rail dock barriers are ideal when wider trailer spaces are required at the loading dock. These barriers can be be installed only 16” from the dock edge, preserving critical floor space within the aisle.


Any unguarded edge at a railcar loading dock or inside a warehouse leaves a business and its employees vulnerable. Recognized by Plant Engineering as a Product of the Year finalist for safety innovation, these Removable Forklift Barriers are strategically engineered to prevent unnecessary workplace injuries and avoid possible fines levied for unsafe employee protection. Featuring integral fork pockets for easy lifting by forklifts, each 10 ft. long Dockshield unit offers robust protection via 42” high personnel guards, a 27″ mid rail, and 12” high steel impact barriers. Dockshield barriers are installed into embedded floor sleeves that create solid ground support by transferring load impact forces to the concrete.
