Castell SALVO Loading Dock Safety

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.
