Straight Rail Dock Gate – EdgeGard™

Straight Rail Loading Dock gates require minimal floor space and are easily assembled and installed providing barrier protection on the dock.

What is a Straight Rail Gate?

EdgeGard™ Dock Straight Rail Gates from Wildeck are straight rail dock gates that are durable, reliable and safe. The loading dock gate itself is easy to operate and is easily assembled and installed. These gates provide an effective barrier for personnel and equipment working near open dock doors, truck loading pits or other hazardous areas.

EdgeGard™ Dock Gates have Wildeck® quality built in. They are available as a Straight-Rail Gate, or unique Folding-Rail design that protects wider openings and minimizes the required clearance height. Appropriate anchors are required for EdgeGard™ gates to meet the 200 lb. OSHA 1910.23 load force protection requirement.
