Radio-controlled safety wheel chock

Without an HGV safety system in place, there is a considerable risk of loading and unloading personnel falling, as the HGV can unintentionally leave the docking area. With the BUTT radio-controlled safety wheel chock, the operator working the loading zone is informed optically and/or acoustically of the missing safety device. The radio-controlled safety wheel chock serves to safeguard the loading process at the door and ramp.

The system works entirely without batteries so that laborious changes of energy source are not necessary. The system’s extensive range also allows, for example, interrogation at the tractor/trailer vehicle without the annoyance of cables. The system can also be programmed individually if there are multiple docking stations next to one another, so a chock only ever releases at the appropriate docking station.

Minimise the risk of accidents!

Accidents, some of them serious, repeatedly occur during the loading and unloading of HGVs because vehicles are inadequately secured against rolling, or not secured at all. The radio-controlled BUTT wheel chock system with integrated forced control from BUTT rectifies this situation and makes loading and unloading safe. The Employer's Liability Insurance Association stipulates that the vehicles at the loading point must be secured against rolling away. In practical terms, most drivers consider an applied handbrake to mean that their duty has been fulfilled. For support, a simple wheel chock is sometimes placed in front of a wheel, which means that rolling away is not normally possible.

However, there is a great risk to the forklift truck carrying out the loading or unloading if the driver of the HGV considers operations to be complete, removes the wheel chock and drives away, even though a pallet might still be being driven in. In this case, the forklift truck including the driver will fall into the resulting gap between the HGV and yard ramp. In addition to material damage, these accidents usually result in serious injury to the forklift driver.

The radio-controlled BUTT safety wheel chock offers a high degree of safety at comparatively low cost. With the help of an integrated forced control between dock leveller and wheel chock, the system minimises employee mistakes. The corresponding control system can be combined with almost any type of leveller and retrofitted with little effort. Another special feature of this system is that both HGV drivers on the outside of the building and loading personnel inside receive a visual and acoustic control signal.
