    Did you know that industrial doors may weigh more than half of a ton?

    It is our duty to create a safe workplace to protect workers from injuries, by doing so, besides keeping safe your personnel, it can also increase productivity and quality, as well as raise employee morale.

    In Loading Dock, Inc. we offer two excellent solutions for those companies that use high-performance doors such as high-speed industrial doors or rolling-doors. Our two systems, Rytech’s Pathwatch® & the new Pathwatch II, are effective, intuitive and completely customizable.

    The new Pathwatch II will help you create awareness and safety at the threshold by projecting a pair of red stripes on the floor and side columns. These will indicate to pedestrians or any vehicle close by that the door is about to close or pathway is not clear to pass.

    Pathwatch II - Safety Light System

    Besides the light-based visual warning system that appears prominently on the floor and side columns, here are some additional benefits and specifications from Pathwatch II system:

    • It lets you know when the door is moving.
    • It is fully adjustable with the timing.
    • It uses steady, slow flashing and fast flashing modes to indicate the different door activities such as the door is about to close, the door is in automatic mode and closing or pathway is not clear to pass.
    • The red stripes span the width of most door openings, which makes them quite visible for anyone that is driving or walking by.
    • Timers can be adjusted to make sure lights are noticeable.
    • It uses maintenance-free LED lights which keeps the energy consumption low but still captures the attention of anyone near the door.
    • It is water-resistant, so it can be installed indoors and outdoors.
    • It requires minimal maintenance.
    • It is easy to install.

    On the other hand, the original Rytech’s Pathwatch® also provides advanced warnings to both, pedestrians and vehicle drivers, by letting them know that the door is about to operate in a slightly different way, as it works with two different colors.

    • When amber-colored lights flashes, it indicates that the door is about to close.
    • When red-colored lights illuminate and remain steady indicates that the door is already closing.
