How Track Guards Can Protect Your Loading Dock

Are you looking to protect the overhead door tracks in your loading dock facility from being damaged?  Track guards can help.  This equipment can prevent your loading dock’s overhead door tracks from being damaged, which will save you both time and money. Below is some helpful information on track guards: 

What are track guards?

Track guards are pieces of metal that are installed where your overhead door tracks meet the floor.  These items are bolted directly into the ground and are strong enough to withstand being hit by motorized loading dock equipment.  Track guards are installed so they don’t interfere with opening and closing your loading dock’s overhead door.  In addition, track guards are painted bright colors to help workers avoid hitting them in the first place. 

How do they protect doors?

A broken overhead door track can cause all sorts of problems.  If the door can’t open or close properly, you may not be able to use your loading dock.  If your loading dock doesn’t work, you may lose time and money.  In addition, even if the overhead door tracks aren’t broken, damaged tracks can lead to misaligned overhead doors.  Over time, misaligned doors will need to be repaired or replaced. 

Track guards protect your overhead door tracks from unnecessary damage.  Because track guards wrap around the bottom of loading dock door tracks, they keep forklifts, pallet jacks, and any other equipment from damaging the tracks.  Instead of hitting the track, they will hit the track guard.  The track will avoid being damaged. 

Track guards are a low-cost way of keeping your overhead door track from being damaged.
