Salvo Loading Dock Safety Systems

Salvo Loading Dock Safety Systems

Salvo loading dock safety systems prevent drive-aways during loading/unloading by interlocking the trailer’s air brakes with the dock door. This ensures that the trailer cannot depart until loading/unloading is completed and the dock door is closed. Salvo keeps your personnel and equipment safe by – eliminating human error.

  • SALVO SAFETY:  Ensures you meet government safety regulations with wheel chocks or restraints.  OSHA’s wheel-chocking requirement for commercial vehicles as defined by FMSCA’s braking regulation.  See [29 CFR 1910.178(k)(1), [49 U.S.C. 31132] and [49 CFR part 393], respectively.
  • SALVO INSTALLATION:  The kits make mounting and wiring as simple as 1-2-3.  The quick installation process allows for minimum disruption and downtime.
  • SALVO VERSATILITY:  This safety system works with all vehicle types.  Salvo can also interlock with existing dock safety products such as dock levelers, restraints, traffic lights, etc.
  • SALVO RELIABILITY:  Salvo utilizes the braking system of the trailer as the restraint.  When the air is released from the trailers brake line, the mechanical brakes automatically engage. Applying the Salvo Gladhand keeps the brakes locked until loading/unloading is complete.
