New Restraint Prevents Rigid Vehicle Drive-aways
MUMBAI, January 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Salvo™ Chock Now Quicker and Easier to Use
Castell's design team has gone back to the drawing board to create a restraint for rigid vehicles that can satisfy the demanding conditions of the loading yard. The result is a chock that is lighter, stronger, significantly easier to use and, importantly, faster to manoeuvre.
Salvo™ is a system that restrains vehicles at loading docks while loading or unloading occurs. This is achieved through patented technology that interlocks either an exposed airline coupling, or a wheel chock, and the loading dock door. This means that while the loading door is open there is no way the vehicle can move; only when the loading door is closed can the restraining device be removed.
Paul Marks, Castell's new Product Development Director, explained: "To enable Salvo™ Chock to really deliver the performance required, we had to spend extensive time researching from first principles what was needed. We believe that, by creating the new Salvo™ Chock, the design team has addressed the key needs of the market."
Launched eight years ago to prevent drive-aways in the logistics industry, the Salvo™ range has undergone significant product development in the last 12 months. New software, DockMonitor, has been designed to enhance the efficiency of the loading process by capturing operational data such as loading time, number of operations, idle time and available time. The addition of DockMonitor to the range means that Salvo™ now enables loading dock performance to be measured while still guaranteeing safety.
