Most accidents near and on the loading and unloading platform are caused by premature vehicle departure or “Drive-Off”.
When a forklift truck or MHE moves from the warehouse to the vehicle the resulting momentum forces can cause the vehicle to creep away from the warehouse. When this scenario occurs, the dock leveller lip can drop from the bed of the vehicle which can also lead to a dangerous situation.
The wheel lock system's movement is indicated by means of an acoustic and optic signal. External (red/green) and internal (red/orange/green) signal lights indicate that the vehicle is locked and restrained, and that loading and unloading process can be safely initiated. Clear and concise signage is also provided for the vehicle driver giving clear instructions on when it is safe for the driver to depart from the loading bay.
The robust, hot-galvanised construction is designed to keep a parked vehicle locked safely in place. The design also incorporates an integrated vehicle wheel guide which ensures that the vehicle is always positioned in the centre of the loading or unloading bay. These design features ensure the loading and unloading process is a simple process and also prevents damage to the equipment and vehicle.
The hydraulic vehicle restraint system can easily be installed on a concrete floor, steel plates and most other surfaces. The system is designed to be robust enough to cope and perform under all weather conditions.
