Perhaps the best way to protect overhead door contacts from industrial motorized traffic like forklifts and large trucks is to recess or bury them into the concrete floor, allowing vehicles of this type to safely pass over them totally unaffected.
The G.R.I. 4510 switch series has been designed from the ground up, so to speak, for just such an application. The 4510 series features all stainless steel construction for maximum resistance to corrosion and has a wide working gap for those loose or badly worn overhead doors.
