Automatic loading dock firewater barrier

The firewater barrier, certified by TÜV and produced according to VdS guidelines, consists of a left side and right side floor plate with hinges. Swivels attach a U shaped metal barrier body. The body of the barrier is held in the vertical position by pneumatic cylinders when not in use.

When activated using a selectable number of switches and in cases of power loss, the barrier swings from the vertical resting position to its horizontal closed position where it is automatically locked to the floor by means of two pneumatic clamps so that it may not be prematurely lifted. Unlocking of the pneumatic clamps and resetting of the barrier to its vertical position is carried out automatically by the pneumatic cylinders.
