Wheel Risers & Chocks
Wheel risers are designed to elevate semi-trailers to loading docks during loading and unloading operations. Wheel risers are available in many widths and heights and have a 40,000 lb. capacity per pair. Wheel chocks are excellent for helping to ensure that trucks remain secure in dock areas.
OSHA currently has a minimum requirement when a trailer is being loaded or unloaded. That requirement is that a chock is to be used on any trailer that is backed into a loading dock. A sign is also required to be posted at each dock position stating the mandatory use of these wheel chocks.
