TRAILER COLLAPSE PREVENTION

Preventing Catastrophe

Trailer collapse is, undeniably, a loading dock nightmare. Whether caused by aged, weakened landing gear or an imbalance created by a forklift maneuvering within, when a trailer rolls or collapses the risk is high:

  • Forklift driver and nearby workers in extreme peril
  • Damage to trailer, forklift, and loading dock is unavoidable
  • Damaged/spoiled cargo
  • Costly closure of dock position(s)
  • Time and cost of removal, repair, and replacement

Ideal Warehouse Innovations’ family of trailer stands offer simple, effective trailer collapse prevention options for any dock environment.

Landing gear collapse and trailer rollover put workers and facilities at risk.
A trailer stand can save lives, prevent injury, and avoid damage.

No Boots on the Ground®

In high-traffic, high-volume loading dock environments, with a constant rush-hour of Yard Jockeys and trailers maneuvering blind spots and tight dock positions, workers in the dock approach (to deploy a trailer stand, say) face great risk. It was a tragedy in such an environment that prompted a customer to approach Ideal Warehouse Innovations for help in adopting a policy of no foot-traffic in the dock approach. Their story inspired our innovations team to create our No Boots on the Ground® product line, new trailer collapse prevention options that can be deployed without setting foot in the dockyard.

DIFFERENT STANDS FOR DIFFERENT DOCKS

Trailer Stand Considerations

  • HIGH-TRAFFIC DOCKS – Truck and Yard Jockey traffic make the dock approach a dangerous place for workers on foot. Our No Boots on the Ground® products help prevent potentially tragic accidents
  • LOW-TRAFFIC DOCKS – In less-busy dock scenarios, our manual stands offer an easy way to help prevent trailer collapse.
  • WIDE SUPPORT – For optimal stability, a wide trailer stand option can help reduce/eliminate side-to-side stresses created by the forklift maneuvering within.
  • LOADING DOCK EFFICIENCY – Using the Yard Jockey to deliver/retrieve our Shuntable 2.0 Trailer Stand is an efficient, ergonomic, time-saving approach.
  • THE DOCK OF THE FUTURE – Our Ground Mounted Trailer Stand is a future ready, fully automated option for the ultimate in efficiency and safety.
  • HEAVY DUTY – All Ideal Warehouse Innovations’ Trailer Stands are drop-tested and certified to deliver 100,000 lbs of support.

TRAILER JACK WARNING. Trailer jacks are designed/engineered to assist in wheel changes and trailer maintenance. A trailer jack should NEVER be used in lieu of a Trailer Stand. Looking for a trailer jack for maintenance use? Visit our trailer jack page.
