Calematic wheel chocks are a type of loading bay technology that sits flush and is used to secure trailers in place, as goods are loaded and unloaded. Chocks are around 80kg and are made from galvanised steel, which are connected to individual air cylinders. There are very few components that make up Calematic wheel chocks, which means they require little maintenance.
To use Calematic wheel chocks, a truck will reverse up to your loading door, which will be opened by a delivery worker. The opening of the door will set off the sensor at its base and raise the chocks. They will be raised by the air cylinders and wedge themselves between the wheels of the vehicle, preventing it from moving.
Once unloading/loading is complete, the delivery worker simply needs to close the loading door to trigger the sensor which will lower the chocks and release the trailer. This simple and automatic operating process is what makes Calematic wheel chocks so highly sought after.
We are more than happy to discuss Calematic wheel chocks with you further and determine which version will suit your needs.
There are two main types of Calematic wheel chocks that we can install at Bolton Gate Services. The first of these models is the simple chock, which consists of a singular block format installed in 2 pits at 20cm intervals. The simple chock is a reliable and customisable piece of equipment that caters for a mixed size of lorries. The options for the simple chocks include 2 lines of 5 chocks, 2 lines of 6, and 1 line of 8; each model is better suited to a specific type of vehicle.
Double chocks, by contrast, is made up of 2 smaller chocks that interlock to grip the wheels of a trailer from both sides. They are extremely reliable and help to reduce civil engineering costs, as they only need one pit. However, double chocks require a wheel guide and larger docking area so are typically suited to new sites and logistic platforms.
Calematic wheel chocks are mostly found in work environments where there is regular in or outflow of goods and materials. Many industrial and commercial sites will have a loading bay, yard, or warehouse, in which vehicles arrive to either collect or drop off goods.
Calematic wheel chocks will maximise work speed and efficiency in these areas whilst keeping your yard clear of obstructions. More and more companies are discovering the benefits of having Calematic wheel chocks fitted.
