Castell has expanded its Salvo dock door locking system by introducing an automatic door lock developed specifically for manual-lift loading dock doors. Salvo is an automatic interlocking system designed to prevent accidents associated with unscheduled truck departures. Salvo's Automatic Door Lock will only allow the door to be unlocked and opened once the Salvo key has been inserted into a control panel located on the exterior wall next to the loading dock door. This ensures that the trailer will not be able to move during loading and unloading operations and warns the driver that it's not safe to depart. In addition, the Automatic Door Lock tells the dock attendant that the trailer is locked out and that loading or unloading can begin.
Salvo's new door lock consists of a solenoid-controlled latch lock with auxiliary switch contacts. The auxiliary contacts can be used to provide the option of switching power to lights or another piece of dock equipment only after the door lock has been unbolted.
