Vehicle restraint system
The superior engineering features of the UHR40 ultrahook vehicle restraint safety system makes it a reliable and effective restraint system for the most demanding of applications. The UHR40 ultrahook vehicle restraint safety system will cycle through a broad operating range. It has an exceptional drawbar rating or holding strength of 40,000 lb. Unlike face mounted restraints, the UHR40 ultrahook vehicle restraint safety system is mounted under the dock leveler making it a non-impact restraint. Further, there are no protruding components when it is in its stored position. The advantages of this installation arrangement for the UHR40 ultrahook vehicle restraint safety system include:
1) Unobstructed dock face for easy snow/debris removal
2) Restraint is protected from outside elements
3) Trucks/trailers and restraint are not damaged by impact
The ultrahook effectively eliminates momentum range concerns which are typical with other restraints. An audible alarm is installed on the UHR40 ultrahook vehicle restraint safety system to signal the operator (alarm sounds and light flashes) should the truck/trailer creep forward during loading/unloading. The design of the UHR40 ultrahook vehicle restraint safety system permits floating with the suspension of the truck/trailer during loading/unloading operations. Operation takes place using proven reliable electro-hydraulic activation. As an option, the operation of the UHR40 ultrahook vehicle restraint safety system can be interlocked to that of other dock equipment, i.e. dock leveler, overhead door, inflatable dock seal, etc.
