Barrier Lip Leveler

Loading Dock Safety Barrier

McGuire’s Barrier Lip Leveler prevents lift trucks from driving off the edge of the dock in both the stored cross traffic and below dock end loading position. When in use in the back of a trailer the Barrier Lip offers a smooth transition between the platform and lip. The McGuire Barrier Lip Leveler provides full time protection while allowing end load operations.

When utilized with a McGuire hydraulic leveler and vehicle restraint, the Barrier Lip offers the best combination for unsurpassed dock safety.

Another Important Safety Feature Easily Added to Any Hydraulic or Air Dock Leveler
A McGuire Barrier Lip leveler comes standard with a 5” high barrier on the dock edge to assist in prevention of accidentally driving or backing off the edge of the dock while leveler is in the stored position. It is safety marked to identify the lip is in positon.

Full Time Protection with the McGuire Barrier Lip

End loading is still achievable with the lip in a safety position.

Expanded Steel Metal Grid to Close Off the Opening
With the unit in the stored, cross traffic position this grid allows debris to either fall through the grid or be swept into this area for it go to pit floor thus keeping this area clean for lip while in use. While in use in a trailer the lip offers a smooth transition between the platform and the lip.
