WHEEL CHOCKS - LOADING DOCK EQUIPMENT
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 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.
RUBBER WHEEL CHOCKS
Rubber Chocks are 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 WHEEL CHOCKS
Aluminum Wheel Chocks are a very durable, light-weight solution to keep loading docks safe and complaint with safety laws.
LAMINATED WHEEL CHOCKS
Laminated Wheel Chocks are heavier than other wheel chocks and provide 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 WHEEL CHOCKS
Urethane Wheel Chocks are 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.
WHEEL CHOCK SAFETY SYSTEM
These systems are a solid solution that replace the need for a Wheel Chock and Truck Restraint. Although these two systems are the most common, Wheel Chock Safety Systems are more durable and reliable. The system is built into the ground with a large steel chock mounted on an articulated, counterbalanced arm. The chock is then placed in front of the rear wheel and locks onto a ground plate. Three sensors, an alarm and signal lights provide employees and truck drivers when it is safe to begin loading/unloading into and out of the truck.
