The automatic wedges Calematic are a new safe system that immobilize the loading vehicle. The vehicle wheels are blocked automatically through one or various wedges forming the system.
It is a robust security system, manufactured with warm galvanized steel sheet. As the wedges are placed in a concrete prefabricated pit, it only requires a minimum of civil work, avoiding major costs or brickworks. The automatic wedges can be installed along a wall or jointly with wheel guides, without interfere with the loading and circulation areas because these remain empty without interrupting the manoeuvres.
They are very easy to use. When the dock leveller is open, the wedges are raised, completely immobilizing the vehicle and therefore the loading and unloading can be started with total safety. When the dock leveller is closed, the wedges descend and the vehicle is free to move. Thanks to the modular coupling of the different elements, the maintenance is quick and easy.
The automatic chocks can operate under positive safety in order to immobilize the vehicle when it reaches the dock. This function can be controlled via a manual and / or automatic operating system.
