Vehicle Restraints

Each year, tens of thousands of American workers are injured in forklift related accidents — many the result of the forklift falling off the edge of the loading dock. In a busy loading dock area, this can easily occur due to sloppy parking, trailer creep or premature truck departures. By securing the trailer, NOVA Vehicle Restraints reduce your company’s risk of physical injury, property damage and downtime in your shipping & receiving department. With a wide variety of models to choose from, our vehicle restraints perform in virtually any application and secure the widest range of vehicles.  The chart below will help you determine which type of NOVA vehicle restraint will work best for your environment:

Dock Levelers

A dock leveler forms a ramp to bridge the distance between the dock and truck.  It must be able to compensate for the up-and-down movement of the trailer during loading and unloading. A dock leveler must support extremely heavy loads, service a wide range of truck heights, and compensate for tilted trucks.  A dock leveler includes a ramp and a lip.  The ramp is hinged at along its rear edge, and the lip is hinged at the front of the ramp.  To use a dock leveler, raise the ramp.  The lip will swing out.  With the lip extended, lower the ramp until the lip rests on the truck. The two common types of dock levelers are recessed and edge-of-dock.
