Increase safety at the loading dock. Many forklift accidents occur every year that are caused by a truck prematurely departing from the dock or creeping away due to loading and unloading momentum. Installing a Vehicle Restraint from DLM can help prevent these accidents by securing a trailer to the dock and providing better communication between the truck driver and dock attendant. If your facility is servicing trailers with varying rear impact guard designs, read this LODEM article and talk to your DLM representative about the best restraint options for you.
The DLM® TPR® truck positioned vehicle restraint is designed to automatically position itself and secure a trailer’s rear impact guard (RIG) to reduce the likelihood of premature trailer separation during the loading/ unloading process.
The TPR UniLock® is the only trailer-postioned vehicle restraint that can automatically remove "RIG Wedge" pressure. RIG Wedge is caused when the trailer is pushed forward during loading/unloading and the trailer's Rear Impact Guard (RIG) applies so much pressure to the restraint's hook that the truck driver must reverse the trailer in order to release the restraint.
The PowerStop® is a non-impact, self-aligning, mechanically operated truck restraining system. An optional light communication package can be added to the MML and MAL, which can also be upgraded to iDock Controls with an interactive message display.
The PowerStop® fully automatic vehicle restraint (AAL) is an easy-to-install, affordable restraining system. It comes equiped with a RIG sensor bar that notifies dock workers if the restraint's arm is not securely engaged with the trailer's Rear Impact Guard.
The UXL is a wheel-based trailer restraint with advanced light communication. Package available as a standalone unit or integrated with other dock equipment. This universally effective chock helps prevent unexpected trailer departure or movement from the loading dock during the loading process.
