This page explains options that are common to Pentalift mechanical vehicle restraints. For more information on any of these options or Pentalift products, contact your Pentalift representative.

Extension Mounting Plate Installation

An extension mounting plate is used when it requires the vehicle restraint to extend away from the loading dock face further than normal. This could be required for various reasons including but not limited to:

Cast in Concrete Plate

A steel plate with anchors is cast into the loading dock face when the foundation wall concrete is poured. This plate allows the vehicle restraint to be welded in place during installation.

Deluxe Communications Lights System Package

Exterior high visibility deluxe LED lights and dual image safety yellow instruction signs are provided to accommodate improved communication between the dock attendant and the truck driver.

Surface Mounting Assembly

An assembly that allows the vehicle restraint to be mounted to horizontal grade surface. This options is utilized when the vertical dock face is not suitable for accommodating the vehicle restraint and the forces that would  be generated by the vehicle restraint.

Zinc Finish

The components of the vehicle restraint are zinc plated to provide a higher level of protection against corrosion and oxidation.
