Floor-Mounted Mechanical or Pneumatic Truck Restraint

Description

Floor-mounted vehicle restraints have a time tested design which is engineered to offer years of reliable, low maintenance safety at your loading dock. The 7-1/2″ version offers the lowest stored height of any vehicle restraint in the industry, allowing service to a wider range of truck types.

Lowest Total Cost of Ownership

  • Extremely low maintenance, with very few moving parts
  • Routine inspections easily performed by internal staff
  • Economical manual or pneumatic operation
  • May lower insurance costs by making loading docks safer

Exceptional Versatility

  • Effective on more types of trucks (e.g. lift gates) than any other model of restraint
  • Installs at more non-standard dock types (e.g. brick veneer, concrete curb, block, etc.)
  • Available in Cast-In or Bolt-In (flange) models
  • Choice of 7-1/2″ (Anchor Series) or 10″ (350 Series) retracted height

Robust Performance & Durability

  • Operates in the harshest conditions – all activation components are INSIDE the building, not exposed to weather
  • Ram bar yield strength of 100,000 lbs.
  • Over 30,000 lbs. of restraining force
  • All exterior components are zinc plated for corrosion resistance

Low Environmental Impact

  • Driveway mounted – no destruction of dock walls
  • Non impact restraint inflicts no damage on trucks
  • Small footprint is not obtrusive to loading dock operations
  • Restraint fluid is non toxic and biodegradable

BOLT-IN:

The “Bolt-in” (Flange) Style housing is designed to be anchored to the concrete drive – not
attached to the dock wall. This will provide years of trouble free service without any damage
to your building! The zinc plated housing is completely self-contained and is designed to
handle the harshest of loading dock environments. This style allows for easier movement to
other dock positions in the event of required location changes.

CAST-IN:

The “Cast-in” Style housing is designed to be embedded into the concrete drive – not
attached to the dock wall. This will provide years of trouble free service without any damage
to your building! The zinc plated housing is completely self-contained and is designed to
handle the harshest of loading dock environments.

STORED HEIGHT:
10″ or 7-1/2″

OPERATION:
PNEUMATIC (Air Powered) or MECHANICAL

INSTALLATION STYLE:
BOLT-IN or CAST-IN

STRUCTURAL:
Restraint housing to be fabricated from high tensile strength steel and ram bar fabricated from 100,000 PSI yield specialty steel. The housing and all external operating components to be zinc plated.

ACTIVATION SYSTEM:
The restraint shall be activated by turning a switch or moving a slide bar to “Restrain” or “Release” the truck. Ram bar is raised by a high strength nylon coated stainless steel aircraft grade cable and guided over heavy duty pulleys with shielded bearings. The switch controls a pneumatic cylinder that activates the cable and is located inside the building within a powder coated steel enclosure. The Mechanical version uses a slide bar located inside the building within a powder coated steel enclosure to activate the cable.

GENERAL:
Loading dock to be equipped with an elevating ram non-impact type restraining device. Overall stored height (7 1/2″ or 10″) above drive with ability to restrain tailgate trailers (7-12″ version). Device design to be anchored to the concrete drive – not attached to the dock wall. Restraint able to be completely submerged for extended periods and still be fully operational. Device can be supplied with a restraint activated 12 volt interior/exterior – red/green light communication system.

WARRANTY:
1 Year Parts and Labor
10 Year Structural Warranty

OPERATION:
After the truck/trailer backs into position against the dock bumpers, the dock attendant switches the Dock Lock to the “Restrain” position activating the restraint. The outside light turns red and inside light turns green, and after verifying the Ram Bar is above the Under-Ride Guard, the attendant may enter the trailer. When the attendant has completed the loading/ unloading process, switch the Dock Lock to the “Release” position deactivating the restraint and lowering the Ram Bar. The outside light turns green and inside light turns red.
