NOVA Technology introduces the Nova Lock-Up™ vehicle restraint
NOVA Technology introduces its new lock-up vehicle restraint. The patent pending NOVA lock-up vehicle restraint is designed to secure an intermodal container chassis or trailer to a loading dock by engaging the Rear Impact Guard (RIG) with a vertical barrier operated by a control panel mounted inside the building. The roller slope extension is designed to decrease resistance of carriage travel while it is adjusting to the height of the RIG on the trailer thereby saving wear on the RIG, carriage and pavement. Engagement range extends from 9-30 inches above the ground. A spring-loaded, structural steel housing automatically positions the unit when contacted by a backing truck. Mounts to dock above ground level to stay clear of accumulated precipitation and debris. Protected from the elements with watertight connectors and zinc plating, which provides exceptional corrosion resistance.
