Castell’s Salvo Control Panel+ system provides fast, safe access to loading docks. The Salvo system prevents injury and damage to loading platforms by making it impossible for trucks to drive away during loading or unloading. Salvo’s Glad Hand lock attaches to the truck’s emergency brake line, ensuring brakes are applied. This provides worker safety and ensures OSHA 29 CFR 1910.178 and FMCSA 49 CFR 393.41 vehicle loading requirements compliance.
Once the Gland Hand Lock is applied, the uniquely coded key is released. This key is then used to open the dock door to begin loading or unloading the trailer. Only after work is completed and the door closed is the key needed to unlock the Salvo Glad Hand brake lock released, making it impossible for the driver to depart prematurely.
A number of custom Salvo configurations are available for powered and manual doors, tanker unloading applications and for loading areas without doors. An illuminated lock makes the system appropriate for use in 24/7 operating environments.
