Optimize Your Loading Dock with Rite-Hite Smart Equipment and Controls

Ready for a 21st century facility? Get there with Rite-Hite smart equipment and controls. We offer smart solutions from equipment to software that can help improve safety, productivity, and communication at the loading dock and inside your plant.

Rite-Hite is leading the way when it comes to warehouse and loading dock technology. From controls and sensors on smart equipment to data and analytics, our warehouse software solutions help facility managers make data-driven decisions to improve safety, productivity, and communication at the loading dock and inside the plant.

“In today’s logistics landscape, it is critical for management to glean operational insights that lead to increased efficiency. Many of those insights come from captured data,” says Moiz Neemuchwala, VP of Rite-Hite’s Digital Solutions division. “That’s why we have added smart technology to our equipment and controls, using sensors to capture data relevant to productivity, safety, and energy use and then we feed it into our Opti-Vu software platform for analysis.”

Rite-Hite smart equipment ranges from loading dock products and controls to in-plant safety warning systems and high-speed doors.

Among the smart products are:

  • Dok-Lok® vehicle restraints, which can track restraint engagement time to help identify unnecessary downtime between loading activities, monitor if restraint goes into fault mode due to misuse or faulty/missing rear-impact guards, as well as alert dock attendants which docks are nearing costly detention and demurrage charges.
  • Dok-Guardian® safety barriers, which can help protect people and equipment from the dangerous 4-foot drop-off at the loading dock. When interlocked with a Dok-Lok vehicle restraint, the safety barrier provides a safe sequence of operation, helping establish productivity and safety thresholds during the loading/unloading process.
  • Safe-T-Signal® intersection warning system, when integrated with our software solutions, can track traffic patterns and frequently congested areas within a facility to help proactively influence behavioral change, increase safety measures, and help reduce accidents related to warehouse traffic safety.
  • FasTrax® industrial doors, when using our smart controls can track energy usage and frequent trends like false activations and excessive opens to help address equipment faults and employee behaviors, determine maintenance needs, and reduce energy costs.
  • Rite-Vu™ Hazard Recognition and Control, which can monitor and alert workers of potential loading dock hazards. By way of motion-detection, audible alarms, interior monitors and LED lights, the smart system helps optimize productivity while keeping workers safe.
