Serco Improves Loading Dock Safety
Serco's Manual Safety-Chock provides loading docks with a cost-effective, versatile wheel restraint solution, capable of engaging and restraining the wide range of trailers that come to the dock, including trucks with lift gates, damaged Rear Impact Guards, or different axle configurations.
Easy installation, simple operation and minimal maintenance provide a lower lifetime cost of ownership than other wheel restraint systems, and its ergonomic design enables easy maneuvering for accurate and reliably safe operation.
The Manual Safety-Chock’s patent-pending design provides up to 32,000 lbs. (142 kN) of restraining force. Its ergonomic handle allows easy engagement of the restraining arm, and the unique foot pedal releases the arm away from the wheel, eliminating chock pinch.
Standard LED interior and exterior lights and an exterior audible alarm enable effective communication between dock employees, yard jockeys and truck drivers. Proximity and photo cell sensors allow the restraint to be interlocked and sequenced with other dock equipment, providing ease of operation and enhanced safety.
The Manual Safety-Chock’s galvanized finish and rugged construction are designed for extreme weather conditions, and the combination of the 10-degree guide rail angle, integrated scrapers and optional heat tracer cable helps clear the restraint of snow, ice and debris.
Serco provides a complete line of loading dock solutions including dock levelers, vehicle restraints, dock seals & shelters, ergonomic lift products, environmental control systems and aftermarket dock accessories. Serco is an industry leading brand owned by 4Front Engineered Solutions.
