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. With ANSI MH30.3 Standard Certified ground mounted models, all Rite-Hite wheel restraints are metalized and painted for corrosion resistance to withstand harsh loading dock environments.

Wheel-Based Restraint Benefits:

  • Services Widest Variety of Trailers – Including lift-gates, standard over the road with or without RIGs and intermodal container chassis
  • Reliable, Low Maintenance Design – Easy installation and maintenance performs in all weather conditions.
  • Integrity of Installation – Completed dock survey required for each dock position to help ensure safe and proper application of all Dok-Loks. Critical to the safety of material handlers and equipment utilizing the equipment, the surveys are reviewed by expert Applications team if outside of standard dock configuration.
  • Pull-Out Force Benchmarks - Rite-Hite was the first loading dock equipment manufacturer to establish pull-out force benchmarks based on years of research and development. Followed today by many other manufacturers, all Rite-Hite restraints are installed with mounting force in excess of 100,000 lbs. while also exceeding 32,000 lbs of pull-out force, doubling what tractors can achieve when in first gear.
  • Communication and Control – Dok-Lok® Controls enhance communication between dock personnel inside the building and truck drivers outside. A dock attendant operates a NEMA 4X rated user interface which allows for full integration of additional and or future equipment. When interlocked with equipment, the controls can be programmed in safe sequential order to help ensure safety protocols and processes are followed.
  • Rite-Vu™ Hazard Recognition and Control - Clear, concise communication sets the stage for safety and productivity. Incorporating lights along with audible and visual alarms can have an immediate, positive impact at the loading dock. From red and green lights which inform dock personnel when they can safely proceed with loading activities to audible and visual alarms that notify personnel when they need to vacate the drive approach, Rite-Hite offers solutions integrated into equipment or standalone for a safer, more productive facility.
  • Opti-Vu® IIoT Platform - Connecting Dok-Lok vehicle restraints, audible and visual alarms, dock doors, dock levelers and more, Opti-Vu captures current events as well as historical trends, allowing managers to analyze loading dock trends and efficiencies to help improve productivity, safety, energy consumption and asset management.
