Do you feel safety is an issue at your warehouse back door? Are you interested in restricting access to your building and adding a layer of safety to your warehouse?
Installing Driver and Building Access Cages may be the right solution for you.
Warehouses, distribution centers, and especially shipping docks can be dangerous places, especially for people who aren’t familiar with your operation.
Delivery drivers and visitors who use the back door pose a potential insurance liability.
Whether a visitor is looking for somebody to sign paperwork, or simply looking for the restroom, they can’t be allowed to walk freely around the factory floor. This puts them at risk of walking into active forklift traffic or automated machinery work cells.
Key Driver Cage Configuration & Features
Driver Access Cages, or Man Traps, are typically constructed as three sided cages that adjoin to an outside wall with an entry door. Constructed of heavy 10 gauge wire woven into a 2″ x 1″ rectangular mesh, these secured entry cages are strong and last. The wire mesh panels are built in one foot increments, so virtually any size cage can be configured to your needs.
Driver cages are typically furnished with a service window and shelf for dropping off and signing paperwork. The locked hinged door provides secured access to the facility when opened safely by an authorized worker. The door can also be equipped with a push bar on the factory floor side to allow employees to leave or for quick exits during an emergency. On the inside of the cage, the door is equipped with a simple key lock. Building visitors do not have a key, so this standard key lock keeps drivers confined to the secure enclosed area.
