What is a Vehicle Restraint System?
Vehicle Restraint Systems, or wheel chocking systems are used to automatically restrain vehicles which are backed on to a loading bay while a dock leveller is used to assist with loading and unloading.
They serve two main purposes in the loading bay, firstly is prevents a vehicle being driven away before it is safe to do so. Also, they prevent trailer creep (which is explained in full further down the page) and its associated problems.
C-Mech is the sole UK distributor of the Calematic Automatic Wheel Chocking System. There are many choices available for vehicle restraint systems which vary both in cost and complexity. However, Calematic has proven to be one of the best due to unique features and many examples of remaining maintenance and damage free over a number of years. We have had many happy clients using the Calematic system, some of these include L’Oreal, Ford and Michelin.
