Why are truck wheel chocks so important?
The safety chocks, also known as truck wheel chocks or restraint systems for trailers, ensure optimum safety at loading docks during the load and unload process.
A too early departure of the vehicle or the trailers forward and backward movement during the entry and exit of the forklift inside the truck, can cause a lack of support on the lip of the dock leveller that leads to the forklift falling onto the dock, and with it, serious personal and material damage.
The safety chocks keep the wheels of the vehicle blocked and guarantee complete immobilization of the truck at the loading dock. They are the best prevention against possible accidents that could have very serious consequences.
We have all the models on the market
Each loading dock and loading bay have their technical requirements. For this reason, over the years we have focused on expanding our brochure of manual, automatic and semi-automatic chocks to be able to offer all the models on the market today. With the recent addition of two truck restraint systems, the manual MIRLOCK and the automatic AUTOMIRLOCK, we complete our range that includes manual chocks with signalling, intelligent chocks with detection and communication systems using light and acoustic signals, hardy locking systems and automatic chocks that need civil works.
If you have a project on your hands and need advice, count on our expert team and the complete range of truck wheel chocks that we can offer you, and contact us without obligation.
