The "Stop & Go" Light Set greatly increases worker safety and is one of the best visual communication package for loading docks. It can be used anywhere clear visual communication is needed. The Stop and Go Light Set consists of two light units, the SG10 and SG20 for the inside and outside of the dock. A six-foot communication cable connects the two light units. The signal light operates with a toggle switch that controls the inside and outside lights. The SG30 can also be ordered without the toggle switch (indicated by "NS" in the part number) for installations that utilize a remote switch. Remote switches can be obtained from an electrical contractor or installation professional.
How the "Stop & Go" Light Set Works
When a truck is parked securely in the loading dock, the inside light is turned green. This indicates to the forklift driver that it is safe to enter the trailer. When the green light is on inside the building, the outside light is red, indicating that the truck should not move. Once the truck is unloaded, the inside light is turned to red. This tells the forklift driver to stay away from the truck. Simultaneously, the outside light is turned green, indicating it is now safe for the truck to pull away.
