This innovative product is revolutionising the way loading docks operate and are managed. Increase productivity and increase safety by employing a smart solution – the Smart Chock.

Rugged design and intuitive operation
The Smart Chock is designed with a rugged surface to increase friction and decrease skidding when in operation and use. This also allows for versatility in between operations. This device leads the way among electronic wheel chocks for providing an easy-to-learn and intuitive operation. The simple sequence of instructions and usability ensures that the entire loading dock team can operate safely and with confidence.

High grade aluminium and ergonomic construction
Made from durable and high quality aluminium, the chock is extremely strong and robust. This makes it perfect for a range of vehicles of all sizes. Designed for easy use and comfortable handling, the wheel chock’s handle sits atop a nearly unbreakable fiberglass shaft.

Design ensures increased reliability
With non-skid, steel sawtooth back plates, sturdiness and reliability is taken to a whole new level. Rest assured that your vehicle wheel chocks and the vehicles being held by them aren’t going to move anywhere.

Ultrasonic sensors
It’s not called a Smart Chock for nothing! Complete with an ultrasonic sensor, this device is able to detect the chock placement in all sorts of workplace and loading dock conditions (even in the most adverse loading dock environments). It’s just one of the many ways our chock will outperform other models around the clock!

High Alert Control panel
The highly sophisticated control panel is located internally and integrates control circuitry and high-intensity LED lights with 180-degree visibility.

Outdoor Target Lights
Additional safety features include the innovative Driver-Targeted Outside Light. These LED lights are designed to be of a high intensity. Produced by patented technology to produce a focused light, it ensures easy external visibility.

Safety Alert System
The Smart Chock includes audible alarms that sound if there is premature movement while loading bay doors are open. To complement the safety alarm, a control panel mounted flashing light works to inform operators of premature removal.

Fiberglass Cable Pole
The intricately designed Smart Chock uses a fiberglass pole to contain the cable and keep it off the ground and out of the way.

Quick release plug
The quick release plug is an easy and manual way of controlling your Smart Chock for urgent situations.

Optional control
These vehicle wheel chocks offer optional control of the dock light, fan and leveler interlocker.

Additional Dock Eye
The Dock Eye safety feature is an optional add-on that is sold separately but works in conjunction with the Smart Chock to provide flashing light warnings inside the trailer when the wheel becomes unchocked. (Due to Trade Mark licensing, the Dock Eye is branded Versa Light in all other countries except Australia.)
