How it works
Salvo Makes Safety Simple

The system prevents 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 locked closed. Salvo Loading Dock Safety Systems keep your personnel and equipment safe by eliminating human error.
