Clear, concise communication is critical to safety at the loading dock. Lights and alarms should clearly inform dock personnel when they can safely enter and exit a truck trailer and inform truck drivers when it is safe to depart.

Johnson Equipment communication systems and controls offer:

  • Rugged components that resist damage in harsh loading dock environments.
  • Non-adjustable control switches that are factory set for optimum performance.
  • Low-profile outside lights prevent damage from backing trailers.
  • Light communication packages are available separately - a safer remedy than wheel chocks alone.
  • Multiple pieces of dock equipment that can be interconnected or interlocked to attain a customized sequence of operation.
