The supermarket chain has decided to entrust the well-being of its warehouse personnel to Salvo following a successful three-month trial of the safety system at its distribution centre in Hinckley, Leicestershire. Salvo was installed on 46 loading bays in the goods out area.
The Salvo system links the articulated trailer to the loading bay door during the loading procedure.
The Salvo Susie lock is fitted to the emergency air brake line coupling when the trailer has been reversed into position at the loading bay. After successful fitment, a uniquely-coded key is released from the Salvo, locking the unit firmly on to the coupling.
The key can only be released once the Salvo has been fitted to the brake coupling. The key is then taken to the corresponding loading bay and used to switch the power on to the door.
Without a locked trailer, there can be no power to open the door.
