The TDS system: a state-of-the-art solution that provides safety at loading docks

Loading docks are dynamic and strategic spaces with high levels of activity, which are prone to frequent accidents between forklifts, trucks and operators. Claitec has recently developed and updated a tool specifically to minimise risk situations in these spaces -the TDS Truck Docking System.

The TDS System minimises the occupational risks that occur in the loading docks, preventing, for example, a truck colliding with the entrance of the dock or leaving while the goods are being loaded.

It is a simple and easy-to-install solution which, once outside the dock, only requires an exterior traffic light, electronic wedge, distance-measuring radar, detection photocell and connection box. While in the docks, it involves a switch box with an RGB beacon on top, an open-door sensor, and an audible alarm.

An effective system for risky manoeuvres.

The TDS System is specially designed to help the driver safely and efficiently load or unload merchandises on the dock, taking into account that operators, forklifts and truck drivers may be involved during this process.

With the TDS System running, when the truck arrives at the dock the driver knows which entrance is available because the outside traffic light is green. At that moment, inside the dock the beacon will be red, indicating that the door should not be opened. The truck, from the outside, will reverse and, as it approaches the entrance, it will be detected by the distance measuring radar that will indicate with the traffic light outside if the truck is far away (green light), or if it is approaching (amber light).

In addition, this radar will be accompanied by photocells located at the entrance, which will indicate if the truck has reached the entrance, causing the exterior traffic light to signal it with a red light.

When the truck reaches the entrance, the traffic light will start flashing amber to alert the truck driver to put the wedge on the rear wheel of their vehicle. Once placed, it will activate a signal to the internal switch box to notify the operators that they can now open the door, and the beacon will turn green on the internal dock. While the operators begin to carry out their task in complete safety, the outside traffic light will turn red again.

Meanwhile, if for whatever reason the truck exceeds the wedge and leaves without completing the task, a very loud audible alarm will be activated to alert all operators in the area that there is danger, also changing the interior beacon of the dock to red colour.

In addition, the system also offers the possibility of detecting people between the distance measuring radar and the truck, adding more safety and control options to those who operate in loading docks.
