Blue Giant StrongArm TL85A Hydraulic Vehicle Restraint System

The StrongArm™ TL85A & TL85 Hydraulic Vehicle Restraint
32,000 lb (14,545 kg) restraining strength

The Blue Giant StongArm™ TL85 hydraulic vehicle restraint keeps dock operations safe and secure during loading and unloading. Trucks and trailers are held firmly in place by a high-visibility barrier-style restraint arm, and a restraining force of 32,000lbs (14,545kgs) prevents accidental separation from the loading dock during the cargo handling process. The TL85 may be left engaged overnight to deter trailer theft.

Communication Package Blue Genius™ Touch Controls

Non-Impact Operation

  • ICC bars are secured via passive engagement, creating less wear and tear on the restraint components and consequently lowering maintenance requirements.
  • Internal automatic pressure switch maintains the arm in the locked position while in operation.
  • Compatible with air-ride suspension systems.
  • VersaLock™ securing technology allows the restraint arm to lock at any angle between 45 and 90 degrees. Perfect for applications that involve a variety of truck configurations, including those with bent or crooked ICC bars.
