Anti-Slip Coating Solves Problem of Slippery Dock Levelers
Warehouse loading dock
Slippery diamond plate dock levelers create a safety hazard for pedestrian and forklift traffic, especially during inclement weather.
Conventional anti-slip paints and tapes applied to solve this problem would wear off within a few months due to forklift and pallet jack traffic scraping against the dock leveler plates.
The Challenge’s Impact On Day-to-Day Warehouse Work:
Frequent reapplication and maintenance of grip systems drove costs and eroded efficiency. Slippery conditions created a constant safety hazard.
