We purchased the PowerChockTM System for the safety level it provided. We have installed this equipment in various facilities over the last 12 years. In our opinion, it is the best system on the market.
I wanted a restraint that didn’t depend on RIG bars,which are sometimes rusted out or torn off. The PowerChockTM System goes along with what drivers have been taught to do, which is to set a chock when they back intothe dock. This system gives us peace of mind.
For our shunt drivers, it takes less than 30 seconds to set or remove the PowerChock. There has been no financial impact or extra cost with the use of the PowerChock systems.
Since we installed loading dock door barriers, our dock doors have not been struck. As a result our maintenance and repair budget has been significantly reduced.
We wanted a system that would work with all types of vehicles. We tested many types of restraints; the simplicity of the Power ChockTM System and its total cost of ownership was what sold it for me.
With the Power Chock System, we purchased value. From a maintenance stand point, there is virtually nothing that can go wrong with these units and they provide the safety we were looking for. The average cost per unit has been less than $50 a year. We have been very pleased with the great support of the GMR team.
The Power ChockTM System has proved to be indispensable in our working environment. Our drivers love it because it’s so easy to use. It provides the level of security that we needed at Molson and we are extremely satisfied after having tried several different technologies.

An unsecured or poorly secured trailer is always at risk of early departure or trailer creep, which can lead to loading dock accidents. These dangerous conditions can also result in damage to expensive equipment and valuable cargo. Effective truck restraint is key to preventing loading dock accidents and fatalities!
Forklifts can damage your loading dock doors when no safety barrier protects closed doors. And forklifts can fall off loading docks when doors are open. In addition, when the doors are open there is the potential hazard of forklifts falling off the loading dock, which can result in a serious dock accident.
Pedestrian safety is not an issue to be overlooked. According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), close to 20 percent of all forklift accidents involve a pedestrian being struck by the forklift, translating to almost 19,000 people per year.
