Nova Technology's Truck Lock helps improve dock safety
Wherever loading dock safety is a concern, the Nova Truck Lock is built to offer affordable protection. The “bolt-in” (flange) style housing is designed to be anchored to the concrete drive, not attached to the dock wall. The zinc-plated housing is self-contained and is designed to handle harsh loading dock environments. This style allows for easier movement to other dock positions in the event of required location changes. The “cast-in” style housing is designed to be embedded into the concrete drive, not attached to the dock wall.
After the truck/trailer backs into position against the dock bumpers, the dock attendant switches the Truck Lock to the “restrain” position, activating the restraint. The outside light turns red and inside light turns green, and after verifying the ram bar is above the under-ride guard, the attendant may enter the trailer. When the attendant has completed the loading/unloading process, switch the Truck Lock to the “release” position, deactivating the restraint and lowering the Ram Bar. The outside light turns green and inside light turns red.
