Control Panel-Custom Enclosure

Combination Control Panels

Integrate all operations into a single control panel

Accidents and near misses at the loading dock can be prevented by safely interlocking and integrating the loading dock controls into a single panel. Applied Handling’s custom designed systems can help your facility by designing new projects or surveying your existing facility to help you.

The Right Way – Single Panel

  • Single disconnect for all power inside panel
  • Fused, single location to lock-out all system electrical power.
  • Controlled, Interlocked, Sequence of Operation for SAFE loading and unloading
  • Single pictorial/written Sequence Diagram on the panel for the complete system.
  • Single electrical drawing set located in pocket on door panel for easier troubleshooting.
  • Protects personnel, dock equipment, the building, and trailers from damage due to operator error.

The Wrong Way – Multiple Panels

  • Multiple sources
  • Multiple power feeds and lock-out locations can be confusing.
  • Panels non-sequenced and non-interlocked. Safety can be compromised by human error.
  • No single tag for system operation.
  • Confusing multiple drawings stuffed in panels or glued to face of door panels.
  • Non Sequenced human error can lead to accidents and damage.


Rite-Vu Light Communication System

Rite-Vu is a complete detection and visual management warning system. It consists of three separate products, including: Corner-Vu, Leveler-Vu and Pedestrian-Vu.

  • Corner-Vu provides immediate Dok-Lok status-at-a-glance to the forklift driver before entering the trailer.
  • Leveler-Vu confirms Dok-Lok status to the forklift driver while inside the trailer.
  • Pedestrian-Vu visually communicates to loading dock personnel if a forklift is inside a trailer.
  • Helps prevent forklift-pedestrian collisions.
  • Helps reduce catastrophic trailer separation accidents.
  • Clear, concise communication to the right person, at the right time, in the right location.
  • Virtual filament technology reduces light pollution and allows for directional light.

Dok-Commander Combination Control Panel

The Dok-Commander system integrates multiple control components at each dock position for a total dock safety system.
