Portable, wireless restraint system secures trailers and communicates operation status
Entrematic (Loading Dock Products) announces the introduction of its new Kelley www.kelleyentrematic.com VERSACHOCK™ Wheel Chock Wireless Trailer Restraint System (Model KMC). Kelley VERSACHOCK provides a simple, cost-effective means of securing trailers while effectively communicating operation status with drivers and dock workers to ensure a safe and productive dock operation.
The Kelley VERSACHOCK is a versatile vehicle restraint system that accommodates a wide variety of trailers and vehicles regardless of the condition or presence of an ICC bar. VERSACHOCK includes a patent pending, wireless engagement design that provides wheel detection at all engagement ranges and requires no chock cabling or permanent structure installed on the drive to secure the vehicle. In addition, Kelley VERSACHOCK fulfills the requirements of OSHA Regulation 29 CFR – 1910.26(b)(2).
“The new VERSACHOCK is the latest innovation in the Kelley line of wheel restraint solutions that ensure loading dock crews remain safe by ensuring trailers are properly secured at the loading dock before loading or unloading,” said Justin Pearcy, Senior Marketing Specialist.
Kelley VERSACHOCK key features include: wireless engagement detection, which provides wheel detection at all engagement ranges; aluminum extrusion construction with a clear hard anodized finish to resist corrosion; pivoting chock sensor arm (with reduced storage profile) that provides engagement detection; heavy-duty wheel trigger; ¼-inch heavy-duty galvanized steel cradle for secure storage; stainless steel sawtooth anchor that prevents chock movement under wheel engagement; industrial sensor unit with extended range retroreflective all-weather beam; and a high-intensity, all-weather white LED wheel engagement light that communicates to the operator when the chock is in proper wheel engagement.
The communications system for Kelley VERSACHOCK includes an interior Nema 4x control panel with red/green communications lights and an exterior LED red/green all-weather light package with a high visibility yellow/black driver’s communication sign.
