Automatic vehicle restraint
Automatic vehicle restraint for dock levellers
The K1-CALEMATIC automatic vehicle restraint system designed by Kopron is a practical and efficient solution for the safety of vehicles and operators during cargo handling operations on dock levellers.
Simple to use, K1-CALEMATIC ensures the truck is locked during loading and unloading, preventing the sudden exit of the vehicle.
The operating logic of this automatic vehicle restraint for loading docks is as follows:
- K1-CALEMATIC can only be operated (truck locking or unlocking) if the leveller is in the rest position and the sectional door is closed
- The sectional door can only be opened if the K1-CALEMATIC system is in the locked position (truck blocked)
- The dock leveller can only be operated if the K1-CALEMATIC system is in the locked position (truck blocked)
This operating logic makes it impossible to occur the sudden exit of the truck before the end of the loading or unloading operation.
K1-CALEMATIC: a simple and efficient dock leveller automatic vehicle restraint
During the handling of goods at loading points, it is essential that operators can work safely. The K1-CALEMATIC automatic vehicle restraint system is a winning solution thanks to the efficiency and simplicity of its operation.
- The wedges are activated via a single control panel
- No tools are needed to disassemble the wedges
- The plant can operate in any climatic condition
- Low maintenance costs (no engine or bearings to grease, much less chains or sprockets)
- A visual inspection is sufficient to ensure the correct functioning of the system
This system consists of two parallel pits per platform, on both sides of the trucks, in which a row of individual wedges is installed for each pit.
The truck is blocked on the dock leveller thanks to the pneumatic lifting of the wedges near the wheels. This prevents any accidental movement of the vehicle.
The wedges are high and effective to ensure the blocking of the vehicles but do not interfere with the mudguards or other equipment of the trucks.
