Safety is absolutely critical at the loading dock. Early departure or “trailer creep” are issues that happen all too frequently without proper safety equipment. In order to prevent the trailer from rolling back or moving unexpectedly during loading or unloading, Wheel Chocks are designed to keep the trailer in place. In the event that trailers continue to move, Wheel Chock Safety Systems provide a more effective solution for locking the truck tire into place and preventing movement. Parking brakes alone are not reliable and can cause major damage to the loading dock or individual. Get fast delivery of wheel chocks here.
- Rubber is the most commonly used chocks within loading dock, truck and safety applications. With a rugged design, heavy duty and long life-span, these chocks have built-in maximum traction grips to help prevent runaway vehicle accidents.
- Aluminum is very durable, light-weight solution to keep loading docks safe and complaint with safety laws
- Laminated is heavy duty and provides the best solution for securely gripping the surface. With a non-slip surface and laminated rubber construction, the contoured grips create solid friction between the tire and parking surface.
- Urethane is great for vibrant visibility and a resistance to fluid, oil and chemicals. With built-in traction grips, these contoured chocks help prevent runaway vehicle accidents. The opening near the bottom allows for a security chain to be strung through to prevent theft.
Other Trailer Safety Options
This is system is a solid solution that replaces the traditional chock that has the potential of sliding. The system is built into the ground with a large steel chock mounted on an articulated, counterbalanced arm. The chock is positioned in front of the rear wheel and is automatically locked on to the ground plate. Sensors, alarms and signal lights provide employees and truck drivers when it is safe to begin loading/unloading of the truck. Although this systems is more of an investment it surprisingly has a lower cost of ownership and provides improved safety. If you would like more information or book a demonstration please contact us.
