TKO impactable dock doors are now available with a visibility panel comprising a quarter of the door area or more to allow sunlight in and provide visibility to the outside to monitor truck traffic. Like the other panels on the TKO door, the TKO vision panel can ward off material handling vehicle collisions and suffer no damage.
To provide this strength the 1¾” panel consists of a double section of 1/8” thick polycarbonate, bonded to an extra-strong tubular frame. The vision panel also has an easy-to-clean surface.
When the TKO vision panel and any other part of the door is hit by a material handling vehicle the door is designed to separate from its guide track, avoiding damage to the door, energy loss and possible dock traffic back-ups.
After impact, the door can be reset by pulling the separated panel back into the door track. The door panels ride along a V-Grooved track on retractable plungers. When the door is hit the plunger slides out of the track, releasing the panel unharmed. Yet while the door, including the TKO vision panel, can withstand collisions the track design prevents forcible entry from the outside to keep the building secure.
