Wheel Chocks stowed and engaged

Main features:

  • Completely flush with yard floor when stowed way so very difficult to damage & ideal when there is restricted room for vehicles turning to reverse on to a Loading Bay.
  • Restrains any vehicle type even those with side skirts, lower or larger mudguards or other types of obstructions.
  • Designed to be maintenance free & unaffected by typical Loading Bay debris.
  • Unaffected by snow or ice & will even operate when submerged.
  • Simple construction with only 5 mechanical parts per chock and no complicated sensors or control system. NO motors, bearings, chains, gears, hydraulics or grease.
  • Operated by low pressure compressed air so eliminates potential Health & Safety or Environmental hazards associated with electrical or hydraulic operation respectively.
  • Zero trip hazards as there are no surface mounted parts between adjacent vehicles when in use & completely flush with floor level when not in use.
