What is BLOCKDOCK doing?

The Nani BLOCKDOCK is a Truck Restraint specially developed by us and is registered for patent worldwide. This replaces the truck wheel wedge and, above all other common massive wedge designs in a functional and cost-effective manner. It is an extremely robust solution for preventing docked trucks at the loading dock from accidentally rolling away or driving away.
 
Docked trucks at the loading dock are locked and permanently blocked until the loading process is completed. Many accidents on the ramp can be prevented.

The 4 advantages of the BLOCKDOCK over conventional wheel chocks and immobilizers

1. Underground installation, thus free yard area

2. Manipulation or driving over (e.g. wheel chocks) not possible

3. automatical locking process

4. cost-effective compared to conventional immobiliziers

 

Use of the BLOCKDOCK

Old problems and new solution

All logisticians are aware of the problem that lorries docked on ramps are not secured by wheel chocks as required. Furthermore, it happens all too often that vehicles secured with wheel wedge move away or roll away. As a result, massive truck immobilisers have become increasingly popular over the past few years. These are placed in front of the ramps and anchored in the yard. As these are large, bulky systems, the space for shunting or clearing the yard area is severely limited by these systems.
Our solution is a simple and comparatively small box construction, which is embedded in the ground in front of the ramp and forms a level with the yard area after installation.

 
The entire BLOCKDOCK system is integrated in the box and can be retrofitted to all loading ramps. Constructed in a compact design, the BLOCKDOCK can be used in front of every imaginable loading dock, whether modern or with old technology. The compact box with a length of about 1.5m and a width of about 1.2m and a height of about 80cm is fixed in a concrete pit in front of the loading dock. The necessary on-site concrete work on the farm is limited.
