Vehicle Restraints

ALEM members offer a range of proven vehicle restraint systems to help ensure the safe loading and unloading of vehicles within numerous loading bays throughout the UK.

Communication between drivers and distribution personnel in loading bays can be poor. To counter this problem, ALEM members have designed and developed solutions to reduce the risk of unintentional vehicle movement and offer a 'safety net' against poor communication by holding vehicles in one place until loading or unloading is completed. Not only does this improve safety, it also eliminates damage to expensive goods and equipment and helps guard against theft. The variety of available vehicle restraint systems includes both semi- and fully-automatic versions. Some are interlocked to prevent the loading bay door from being opened until the restraint system has been deployed. Many also work in conjunction with 'traffic lights' to further simplify safe docking operations. Almost every type of vehicle can be accommodated including double deck trailers and those fitted with 'tail lifts'. Importantly, all vehicle restraint systems supplied by ALEM members help companies to fulfil their loading bay health and safety obligations.
