Prevent Drive Aways

The Salvo links the articulated trailer to the loading bay door during the loading or unloading of goods.

The Salvo comprises of two sections:
1. The lock that controls the movement of the articulated trailer
2. The lock that controls the opening of the loading bay door.

The Salvo is fitted to the emergency air brake line coupling when the trailer has been reversed into position at the bay. After successful fitment, a Castell coded key is released from the Salvo, locking the unit firmly onto the coupling. The coded Castell key can only be released once the Salvo has been fitted to the brake coupling.
The coded Castell key is then taken to the corresponding loading bay door and used to open the door. Full system options can be viewed in the IOM and the animation section.

The secret of the system is that only one key exists per bay, thus ensuring that the door can only be opened ONCE the trailer has been secured in place. To ensure the integrity of the system, each bay will have a different code.



Castel Flexibility

The Salvo has such flexibility that a number of different options are available to link the door to the trailer,
dependant upon the working practices of the site, the door locks can vary from a mechanical only lock to a solenoid controlled electrical lock. The final design will be decided upon completion of a site survey.

'Ultimately, Salvo offered us a robust, cost-effective solution that our workforce had faith in', says Mark Ford, Assistant General Manager at the site. 'Our warehouse staff are now more comfortable in their working environment and our drivers have taken to the system quite readily.'

Alex Oxley, Arla's Dispatch Area Manager, speaks of Salvo in glowing terms:

'From a health and safety point of view, it's the best thing I've ever seen. The drivers don't mind using it and I certainly wouldn't be without it.'
