The manually operated StrongArm™ ML10 is engaged and released by a single detachable control rod. Because no bending or lifting is required, the risk of employee strain or injury is significantly reduced.
ANSI MH30.3 tested and approved, the StrongArm™ SVR303 is a low-profile, non-impact design with a rotating arm that seeks a trailer’s ICC bar via a patented, switchless technology.
Once engaged, it uses 35,000 lb (15,909 kg) of restraining force to secure the truck to the dock. Dual-acting hydraulic cylinders prevent lock-up and release problems.
The Intelligent Positioning System (IPS) constantly communicates the location of the restraint arm via a network that enables the integrated lights communication system to accurately display safety conditions at the loading dock.
When it comes to heavy equipment in the shipping and receiving area, safety is always a concern. Blue Giant wheel chocks secure the truck wheels and prevent them from shifting or moving during loading and unloading.
OSHA requires trucks to have their rear wheels chocked and/or the brakes set at all times. For maximum safety two wheel chocks per trailer are recommended (1910.178 (K) 1). Blue Giant wheel chocks help building managers satisfy applicable safety standards and meet both legal and insurance-related obligations.
