Mechanical Vehicle Restraints
Blue Giant Mechanical Vehicle Restraints are manually operated and engaged and released by a single detachable control rod. They are simple to operate and require virtually no maintenance.
1. Manual Operation: engage and release functions are controlled by an integral push bar, with no lifting required
2. Secure Barrier: barrier-style restraint arm offers solid and dependable hold
3. Non-Impact Design: extends the working life of the vehicle restraint
4. Corrosion-Resistant: zinc plating to prevent rusting or corrosion
Simplicity of design, heavy-duty construction materials and minimal maintenance/lubrication requirements reflect on long-term low cost of operation. Because no bending or lifting is required, the risk of employee strain or injury is significantly reduced. Additionally, passive engagement style results in less wear and tear and lowers maintenance requirements.
Highest Quality Standards
With a vertical restraining range of 11" to 26" (279mm to 660mm) above ground and a horizontal reach of 13" (330mm), the ML10 is compatible with virtually all modern trucks and trailers, even those with air-ride suspension systems.
30,000lbs (13,636kgs) of restraining force prevents premature truck departure during loading and unloading. Also, the unit can be left in the locked position overnight to discourage trailer theft.
Certain applications, such as chemical handling facilities or grain storage locations, involve explosive substances and require limited interaction with electrical devices: the ML10 is a safe and reliable restraining device for these situations because of its entirely mechanical operation.
The ML10 system can be upgraded to include a manual or automatic lights communication package for added safety at the loading dock.
The TLC24-M has interior and exterior LED signal lights (red/green) that are manually controlled to communicate safety conditions to both dock workers and truck drivers.
The advanced TLC24-A has all the benefits of the TLC24-M but also detects the position of the restraint via a sensor, allowing the lights to automatically change according to the relevant safety condition.
