Wheel Guides

 

The Wheel Guide Alignment System from Rite-Hite Aftermarket helps to consistently position trailers at your loading docks every time.

When trailers back into loading dock off-center, there are potential hazards that can occur. Damage to building walls, dock bumpers, dock levelers, and seals and shelters can cost you money, while decreasing productivity at your plant.

Rite-Hite's Wheel Guide System helps to minimize the damage that can happen when trailers are not properly positioned at the dock.

Made from schedule 40 tubing the Wheel Guide System can be used as a temporary or permanent guide on the dock approach. Heavy-duty steel plates and 5/8" x 5 1/4" supplied anchors assist in making installation easy. The Wheel Guide System has a safety yellow powder coated finish for increased visibility.

Light Communication


The Light Communication System is a unique, low-cost way to improve communication between truck drivers and your dock personnel. The simple red and green lights -- instantly understood as "stop" and "go" -- provide clear signals to dock workers inside and truck drivers outside. So your dock can operate more safely and efficiently.

Excerpts from OSHA Regulations regarding fixed trailer jacks or trailer stands
Fixed jacks may be necessary to support a semitrailer and prevent upending during the loading or unloading when the trailer is not coupled to a tractor.

The brakes of highway trucks shall be set and wheel chocks placed under the rear wheels to prevent the trucks from rolling while they are boarded with powered industrial trucks.

Additional Solutions
Rotating hook Dok-Lok vehicle restraints can also can help prevent accidents caused by landing gear collapse.

Around the sides of your dock leveler, gaps are created between the leveler and the concrete loading dock pit wall.

If these gaps are left uncovered they can become as large as a 14" by 14" hole in your wall and could cost $557 annually. (Based on a climate in Cincinnati, OH)

Installing energy efficient loading dock leveler weatherseals by Rite-Hite Aftermarket will close the gaps and will help reduce your heating and cooling costs. In many cases, these weatherseals will pay for themselves in four months or less.
