Arbon Equipment introduces the RHR-4000 Dok-Lok rotating hook restraint, a trailer restraint that adds another layer of safety by securing overseas (intermodal) shipping container chassis or rear impact guard trailers with obstructions. The exclusive RHR-4000 Dok-Lok vehicle restraint also offers a water- and dust-resistant IP66 rated motor and a longer lasting, black corrosive resistant (rather than zinc-plated) finish.
Rite-Hite created the vehicle restraint industry by introducing the original Dok-Lok in 1980. The new RHR-4000 not only helps prevent all types of trailer separation accidents, but now features an exclusive “shadow hook” to safely secure container chassis or rear impact guards (RIG) with obstructions. Those chassis frequently have a plate or other obstruction above the RIG, which can cause dock communication systems to give a false “green” when the hook isn’t completely engaged. Dok-Lok rotating hook restraints are also designed for impact and to withstand today’s increasingly frenetic loading dock environment, with an enhanced track for better performance.
“This product addresses safety and security issues that will only continue to grow as the percentage of intermodal trailers coming into distribution centres increases,” said Joe Manone, President Rite-Hite Products. “The RHR-4000 offers the most universal hook design, with the best wrap on a RIG and the widest working range of any rotating hook restraint on the market.”
Like previous Dok-Lok models, the RHR-4000 protects fork lift drivers and other dock personnel against early departure and trailer creep, as well as trailer tip-over, pop-up and landing gear collapse. The RHR-4000 comes standard with the Rite-Vu Light Communication System, including Corner Vu (which provides immediate Dok-Lok status-at-a-glance to the forklift driver before entering the trailer) and Leveler-Vu (which confirms Dok-Lok status to the forklift driver while inside the trailer.)
Arbon Equipment is part of Rite-Hite Corporation who is a world leader in the manufacture and sale of loading dock equipment, industrial doors, safety barriers and high-volume, low-speed (HVLS) industrial fans – all designed to improve safety, productivity, and energy consumption. Rite-Hite’s brand portfolio includes Rite-Hite Products, Rite-Hite Doors and Rite-Hite Fans, as well as Frommelt, Frommelt Safety and Zoneworks. The company’s continuing emphasis on research and development has led to a succession of new products that have pioneered their respective industry segments.
