A communication light system informs truck drivers outside and inside loading dock personnel of the status of the loading or unloading operations taking place, helping to manage traffic flow, prevent unscheduled truck departures and trailer entries, as well as reduce time and fuel costs. Loading dock communication light systems are used by many warehouse and distribution centers to prevent unauthorized truck departures while loading/unloading operations are taking place. By implementing a flashing red and green light system, the status of the loading and unloading process is easily communicated to truck drivers outside and inside the facility. This prevents unscheduled departures of trucks from offsite locations, such as rest stops or restaurants on the highway. It also reduces the duration of truck visits, preventing unauthorized trailer entries onto private property through open loading dock doors.

The loading dock communication light system can be integrated into a new or existing facility providing loading and unloading operations. Choose incandescent lamps or LED Lamps when ordering (LED lamps are long-lasting) If incandescent lamp version is desired, and the intended use will have the lamp on constantly, a flasher is required to flash the light and reduce heat build up within the unit this does not apply to the LED lamp versions unless flashing is desired, Shallow depth prevents damage to unit, Integral eyebrow-type sun visors for extended visibility.

What is a dock light communication system?

These unique systems for helping truck drivers and personnel to communicate effectively with one another while loading and unloading is being carried out, are an affordable way to promote and guarantee dock safety. Usually consisting of a set of red and green lights, such as those used on traffic signals and generally accepted as the universal colors of ‘stop’ and ‘go’, dock workers and truck drivers are provided with clear signals that enable them to perform their individual functions safely and with ease.

Our communication, light and control system

Here at Industrial Door Systems, we can provide you with (and install, repair and maintain as required) a simple, reliable and affordable lighting system that allows you to establish a clear and effective line of communication between your truck drivers and your dock personnel. The risk of accidents is greatly reduced, and with flashing red and green lights to warn of the status of loading and unloading operations, workers at your dock will be given peace of mind (as will you) and the ability to continue with their work in a more productive and efficient manner.

  • Employees are protected both inside and outside the loading dock when operating material handling equipment such as forklifts.
  • Helps to give an extra layer of protection for pedestrians on the drive approach.
  • Collisions between forklifts and people are prevented
