Wheel-Based Restraints

Servicing the widest variety of trailer types including liftgates, standard over the road with or without RIGs and intermodal container chassis, wheel-based vehicle restraints provide the highest level of safety and security for any application. All Rite-Hite wheel-based restraints are metalized and painted for corrosion resistance to withstand harsh loading dock environments. 

Launching in 2001 to respond to the growing trend in liftgates, wheel-based vehicle restraints help service the widest variety of trailer types at the loading dock. Properly restraining the rear wheels, instead of relying on the rear impact guard (RIG), they are ideal for facilities that want to:

  • Service the widest variety of trailers, including specialty trailers and liftgates (which are commonly found in Food and Beverage industries).
  • Respond to rise in Global Logistics by properly securing intermodal container chassis, obstructed, broken or missing RIGs to help prevent trailer separation accidents during (un)loading.
  • Ensure on-center trailer positioning to enhance seal effectiveness with wheel guides.
  • Combine operation of restraint and hydraulic leveler with single power unit.
  • Ergonomically operate manual restraint while actively communicating restraint status.
