There’s no denying that calematic wheel locks are a vital feature to have. In short, these wheel locks keep vehicles docked with your warehouse secure and prevent any unnecessary damage, injuries, or worse. And their maintenance keeps you compliant with the 1992 Workplace Regulations – Maintenance of Equipment, Devices and Systems as well as your insurance provider.
Further details can be found below, but if you require assistance, pick up the phone and call us today on 08009178583.
Any warehouse should be equipped with calematic wheel locks as they play a crucial role in keeping everyone safe. When vehicles back up to a service entrance, the locks provide a secure base for the vehicle’s rear wheels. Once a vehicle is parked up, with one touch of a button, the wheel locks will raise and clamp around the wheels. This prevents the vehicle from shifting forward suddenly, which could result in a person or forklift falling through the gap between the vehicle and the loading bay.
Once unloading/ loading is completed, and the ramp has been retracted, the button is pressed once more, and the chocks are lowered, releasing the vehicle in the process. If, however, one or more of the wheel locks are damaged or worn, they may not engage correctly or fail to release. Either scenario can be avoided thanks to our comprehensive maintenance and repair service.
It’s a legal requirement to have your calematic wheel locks regularly serviced. Bolton Gate Services has many affordable service packages available, so don’t hesitate to get in touch for a free quote.
