There are many components that ensure a safe material handling operation. One of the most important is an effective, dependable truck restraining system like the PowerHook® by Poweramp®. The PowerHook® vehicle restraint is the most effective truck restraining device available on the market. By actively seeking, finding, and securing a trailer's “Rear Impact Guard" (RIG), the PowerHook® eliminates potential problems between the truck and the dock leveler.
The TPR UniLock® is the only trailer-positioned vehicle restraint that can automatically remove "RIG Wedge" pressure. RIG Wedge is caused when the trailer is pushed forward during loading/unloading, and the trailer's Rear Impact Guard (RIG) applies so much pressure to the restraint's hook that the truck driver must reverse the trailer in order to release the restraint. The UniLock has an advanced cam design that first rotates the hook away from the RIG to remove the pressure, and then rotates down to a stored position.
The Poweramp TPR® truck positioned vehicle restraint is designed to automatically position itself and secure a trailer's rear impact guard (RIG) to reduce the likelihood of premature trailer separation during the loading/ unloading process.
The PowerStop® fully automatic vehicle restraint (AAL) is an easy-to-install, affordable restraining system. It comes equipped with a RIG sensor bar that notifies dock workers if the restraint's arm is not securely engaged with the trailer's Rear Impact Guard.
By providing an economical solution for your shipping and receiving operation, the PowerStop® Manual vehicle restraint brings value and enhanced safety to your loading dock. The PowerStop® is a non-impact, self-aligning, mechanically operated truck restraining system. An optional light communication package can be added to the MML and MAL, which can also be upgraded to iDock Controls with an interactive message display. The MAL comes equipped with a RIG sensor bar that notifies dock workers if the restraint's arm is not securely engaged with the trailer's Rear Impact Guard.
The UniChock is a wheel-based trailer restraint with advanced light communication and available as a standalone unit or integrated with other dock equipment. This universally effective chock helps prevent unexpected trailer departure or movement from the loading dock during the loading process.
Poweramp® edge-of-dock levelers mount directly to the dock face and provide a recommended working range of +/-3" and a maximum operating range of +/-5" above or below dock. The units are offered with either mechanical or hydraulic operation.
Poweramp's® VS Series vertical storing dock leveler offers unmatched environmental control for customers with food storage or temperature sensitive applications. By storing in the vertical position, the VS Series allows the overhead door to form a perfect seal to the pit floor. VS Series levelers offer improved cleanliness, overhead door protection, increased security, improved productivity, and easy maintenance.
The portable steel yard ramp allows for traffic to move from the dock level down to the ground or from the ground up into the back of a truck, which helps loading/unloading flow smoothly. The 18" industrial solid rubber pneumatic tires allow for easy movement of the yard ramp around your shipping yard to have you ready in minutes to begin loading/unloading. The hydraulic adjustment system permits fast reliable height adjustment of the yard ramp with virtually any trailer bed height.
XL Series Hydraulic dock levelers by Poweramp® are the ultimate in heavy-duty hydraulic dock equipment. The complete hydraulic system includes fluid logic block technology engineered and manufactured by Poweramp® for use specifically on dock levelers.
Today's new truck bed heights often don't reach standard dock level. The PowerLift™ hydraulic truck leveler makes loading and unloading these trailers safe and easy by eliminating the loading hazards you find with other dock leveling equipment.
The RCR Series hydraulic dock leveler offers unmatched environmental control by storing in the vertical position allowing the door to form a perfect seal to the pit floor.

A loading dock must be properly designed for safety and the efficient movement of product over the dock. This course outlines some of the basic design considerations for the site and the loading dock, and examines the selection criteria for four dock equipment categories: gap bridging (dock levelers), safety, weather protection, and lighting equipment.
