Manufacturing & Industrial
As manufacturers ourselves, we are constantly finding uses for our own products. Plastic chain and stanchions are used to restrict access to heavy machinery. Different colored stanchions and chain are used to identify the loading docks with different colors for UPS, FedEX, etc. Loading dock kits are placed at each of our loading docks to create the visual barriers required by OSHA. Temporary barriers are created with plastic chain and stanchions to restrict access to an area when maintenance work is being performed. They are also used when there is a spill or any other potentially dangerous situation when there could be a risk to workers.
Yellow and black striped stanchions denote “caution”, and these are commonly used in manufacturing plants.
Both the 3” heavy-duty stanchion and the X-treme stanchion are useful and appropriate in industrial facilities.
