Castell's Salvo product range includes an automatic door lock for manual-lift loading dock doors. Salvo is an automatic interlocking system designed to prevent accidents caused by unscheduled truck departures. The 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. The key is released by the Salvo glad hand lock after it has been attached to the trailer's emergency glad hand fitting. This ensures the trailer's brakes are locked to minimize movement during loading and unloading and warns the driver that it is not safe to depart.
