Typically these driver cages are furnished with a service window with a shelf to provide the driver a counter to sign and pick up their paperwork.

Control Building Access

WireCrafters Driver Access Cages are a simple, cost effective way of controlling access to distribution centers, buildings, or factory floors. Building access is controlled by surrounding building entry doors with our wire mesh partitions, confining truck drivers and other visitors to a defined area. Driver Access Cages can be ordered in any size, and may be built free standing or anchored to existing building walls.

Keep Your Facility Safe & Secure

Driver access cages protect your company as well as visitors, vendors, and other warehouse or building personnel. Truck drivers, delivery people and other non-employees who enter your facility can be an insurance risk. Unauthorized personnel visiting your facility may unknowingly walk into active fork truck traffic areas, or into automated machinery work cells.

Whether a building visitor is looking for someone to sign a ticket or just looking for a restroom, they should not be wandering around your factory floor. Failing to restrict building access is a huge potential risk for accidents in your facility, especially if they are not a trained employee. Driver Access Cages also protect your inventory. In order to keep the honest man honest, separating outside personnel from your inventory and expensive equipment is essential.

Typical Building Access Cage Configuration

Driver Access Cages, or Man Traps, are typically constructed as three sided cages that adjoin to an outside wall with an entry door. These driver access cages are made of our Style 840 Wire Partition System. Heavy 10 gauge wire woven into a 2" x 1" rectangular mesh is strong enough for any industrial security cage requirement. The size of these building access cages vary from six by six up to eight by eight. Because WireCrafters has panels in one foot increments, any size cage can be configured.

Failing to restrict building access is a huge potential risk for accidents in your facility.

Typically these driver cages are furnished with a service window with a shelf to provide the driver a counter to sign and pick up their paperwork. The access cage also has a pedestrian hinge door for access. The door can be equipped with a full width push bar on the factory floor side to allow employees to exit the factory floor at any given time, or during an emergency. On the inside of the driver access cage, the door is equipped with a simple key lock. Building visitors do not have a key, so this standard key lock keeps drivers confined to the secure enclosed area.

Accessories for Driver Access Cages

WireCrafters can provide a steel bench 4', 6', or 8' wide to allow for seating within the cage for waiting drivers. For additional security, a ceiling panel made of the same heavy 10 gauge wire can be added to the access cage. Because Driver Access Cages are usually located in high traffic shipping dock areas, our single or double high GuardRail Safety Railing System can be installed around the perimeter of the access cage for added protection.
