Ideal for busy loading docks, the hands-free Ground Mounted Trailer Support (GMTS) can be deployed/retracted with the push of a button. It is permanently positioned in the trailer docking area in its retracted state. When a trailer has been docked and secured, the GMTS can be activated from inside the loading dock area, rising to support the trailer from below, during loading/offloading.
The GMTS supports safety because it prevents trailer collapse and is built for dock environments where a worker in the yard would be at risk from dock traffic. Unlike most trailer support options, the GMTS is not manually deployed by a dockworker, but is operated safely from inside the dock area, eliminating risk and saving time.
