System to retain manually the wheel of the truck, which helps to prevent accidents at the loading dock in an easy and intuitive way to use. The ergonomic design allows the retain system to be operated by a single person with minimal effort. During the approach, the system works as a guide, centring the truck in the right place and avoiding involuntary blows because of a wrong placement with respect to the dock bumpers. This reduces the possibility to damage the truck, the shelter, the ramp or the building. The ramp is locked until the rear wheel of the truck is secured by the fastening arm. The entire system is communicated by means of light and acoustic signals for both the operator and the driver.
Mirlock adapts to all types of doors, manual and automatic, and is compatible with 98% of the trailers on the market. Being an electromechanical system, it requires minimal maintenance.
The allowed blockage distance between the Mirlock arm and the truck tire is 50 mm maximum.
The Mirlock H50 model has a length of 2,030 mm, while the length of the Mirlock XL model is 4,030 mm to be able to retain trailers, container ships and two-axle trucks.
Logistic work safety during loading /unloading
This vehicle retain system does not allow the dock door to be opened if the truck is not locked and it is not unlocked until the door is closed.
In addition, it includes an electromagnetic system to block the fastening arm, which is automatically activated during the loading operation and prevent the arm from being withdrawn before the end of the process. If the driver wants to remove the blocking arm during the transfer of goods or when the door is open, an acoustic signal goes off both inside the logistic warehouse and outside, indicating that the system is not being used properly. In the case of manual doors, if the door is opened without having the truck locked or without any vehicle at the dock, the acoustic signal will be activated. Finishing of the structure is of galvanized steel.
