Light Communication System (LCS)

Loading Dock Communication System

The McGuire Light Communication System is an easy to use, dependable, and cost effective lighting system that quickly establishes a clear line of communication between truck driver and dock personnel thus reducing the risk of accidents at the loading dock.

The LCS uses flashing red and green lights both inside and outside the building that always flash in opposing mode to inform both truck driver and forklift operator of the status of the loading or unloading operation.

McGuire’s Light Communication System can be purchased utilizing either manual or automatic activation. The LCS can be integrated into a single control enclosure with your hydraulic or air operated leveler and optional interconnections can assure proper sequence of operation enhancing safety and efficiency at the loading dock.


High Visibility Signs Are a Standard Part of the LCS Package
A set of standard read and mirrored image read signs that read “Caution. Pull in or out on Green Only” are provided as an added measure of safety with the LCS communication system.

A means to Safely Communicate Trailer Positioning That Is Cost Effective Yet Dependable
Usage of inside and outside red and green lights that are always in an opposing mode can inform your truck drivers and dock attendants the status of loading and unloading. They come complete with safety signs.

Exterior Light System Is Designed for Maximum Durability and Visibility
Exterior polypropylene housing will not rust, pit or corrode like similar metal units. The shallow depth of the unit helps to protect from damage from incoming trailers. A yellow housing is highly visible and the usage of integral eyebrow-type sun visors over the red/green lights creates extended visibility.

Two Means to Activate the LCS Provides You With a Maximum Flexibility in Design
The standard activation is manually via a “flip” switch activated by the dock attendant on the interior control panel. Usage of an optional solid state sensor can make your light activation automatic.

Edge Lights

Light & Communication

A light communication system is an important safety component to have at any loading dock. You can enhance this communication by adding the Edge Lights to the interior wall above the dock door.

Edge Lights flash either red or green and are an added level of safety that becomes visibly clear to any dock worker when it’s safe or not to enter the trailer.

Integrate these Edge Lights with the TPR/UniLock vehicle restraint controls for an automated level of communication to ensure that a safe loading process takes place.


Fault Light
When there is a fault with the restraint, or the controls are put in bypass mode, the middle amber light will illuminate to inform dock workers to proceed with caution.

Interior Communication
Integrating with TPR/ UniLock vehicle restraint controls act as a clear indication to dock workers of proper restraint engagement and if it’s safe to enter the trailer.
