Vehicle restraints and dock lock safety systems are a key component of efficent and safe modern loading docks. Vehicle restraints lock trailers into position at the loading dock. The vehicle restraint systems incorporate an intergrated system of signal lights, inside on the vehicle restraint control panel and outside on the facility wall to communicate loading and restraint status to the dock attendant as well as the truck driver.
The Pentalift raised vehicle restraint safety system offers rugged design, simple and reliable gear box activation for minimal maintenance and maximum product value. The loading dock has been rated as one of the most hazardous areas within most facilities. Serious loading dock accidents can result from such things as premature truck departure, trailer creep and collapsing landing gear on spotted trailers. The Pentalift model RVR32 raised vehicle restraint safety system is a proven solution to loading dock safety concerns. The reliable gearbox and slip clutch operation promotes continued use by the dock attendant. The 9" lowered height accommodates trailers with increasingly lower rear impact guards (R.I.G.).
Dun Rite offers a wide range of mechanical and automatic vehicle restraint systems designed to improve safety and prevent accidents at the loading docks. A range of models allow you to select the proper solution for your application.
