5 Reasons Lenworth is the Best Choice for Truck Restraints in Toronto


Looking for truck restraints in Toronto? Here’s why you should go with Lenworth

For facility managers looking for truck restraints in Toronto and the GTA, there are plenty of companies to choose from. But in order to make the best decision possible, there are certain intangibles to consider when choosing a provider, such as:

  1. Is the quality and variety of their selection up to par?
  2. Do they offer accredited installation and post-purchase maintenance?
  3. Will they respond to the unique demands of my facility?

To ensure both an excellent product and that all these questions are sufficiently addressed, Lenworth is the best choice for truck restraint installation and maintenance in Toronto. Read on to learn about five ways we go above and beyond for facilities in the GTA.

1. We are committed to doing things right & providing a variety of services to facilities in Toronto.

Our accredited specialists have undergone extensive training to properly install and service different models of truck restraints.

We also work tirelessly to ensure that our clients get the most out of their transition to their new truck restraints.

3. Lenworth carries truck restraints that prevent common loading dock accidents.

Efficient loading dock procedures are vital for businesses that ship and receive large quantities of cargo on a daily basis. Because speed has become such an important factor for successful businesses, enhanced safety measures around loading dock areas have never mattered more. No facility should have to compromise on the safety of its employees in pursuit of efficient operations.

Lenworth Truck Restraints are extremely effective at preventing avoidable loading dock accidents by guaranteeing a stable, secure connection between a truck and the facility’s dock leveller. Specifically, our lineup of products can help guard against these four common loading dock accidents:

Early Departure

This occurs when a truck driver unexpectedly leaves the loading dock area before loading or unloading operations are complete.

Trailer Creep

When a truck slowly moves away from the edge of a loading dock, leaving a dangerous gap. Workers can easily fall through this gap during operations and pin themselves between the dock and the trailer.

Truck Pop-ups & Upendings

Pop-ups occur when the forklift’s weight concentrates at the back of a trailer, causing the nose to rise. Conversely, a trailer upends when the weight of a forklift is concentrated at the front. This causes the rear of the trailer to rise away from the loading dock.

Landing Gear Collapse

Occurs in situations when a truck trailer is only supported by its landing gears while it’s being loaded or unloaded. It can easily happen when a trailer’s landing gears have been weakened by age, repeated use or unseen damage.

4. Our truck restraint models suit all types of Toronto facilities

Regardless of the specific requirements and specifications of the facility in question, Lenworth carries a truck restraint suitable for any situation. Whether you’re looking for a hydraulic model, a mechanical model or a truck restraint specifically designed to accommodate truck trailers fitted with very low rear-impact guards, we will work with facility managers to understand their specific needs.

The Electric Hook Truck Restraint

This is one of Lenworth’s premier safety products. It uses an automatic rotating hook to secure the rear-impact guard, generating a restraining force of 32,000 lbs that fully stabilizes and immobilizes the truck. A cost-effective alternative to hydraulic models, its rugged design is virtually maintenance-free. It also performs at a high-level in all weather conditions.

The HFR32 Truck Restraint

The HFR32 is a comprehensive, face-mounted, non-impact truck restraint safety system. Capable of a restraining force of 32,000 lbs, its open and flood-proof design comes with a high-visibility two-way communication system. This allows the dock attendant and the vehicle operator to communicate with each other.

The LPR35 Truck Restraint

Accommodates vehicles fitted with very low rear-impact guards. These models are especially useful now that certain trailer beds are designed to sit lower to the ground. Capable of a restraining force of 35,000 lbs, it also comes with a weather-resistant open design and a high-visibility two-way communication system.

5. Lenworth offers the best pre- and post-purchase care in Toronto

Our commitment to ensuring our clients get the most out of their truck restraints doesn’t end with the purchase of the product itself. After the initial inquiry, one of our representatives will tour a facility to gain a complete understanding of its unique needs and which truck restraint model would be most beneficial. Following a purchase, all of our clients have the opportunity to join our Preferred Service Program (PSP).

The PSP is a membership program that facility managers can join in to ensure their facilities are operating at maximum efficiency, and to maintain facility equipment that is safe & reliable. It’s a preventative maintenance service that will mitigate facility risk, prevent accidents and boost productivity. There are a number of tangible items that our Preferred Service Customers can take advantage of when they choose to join the program. Specifically, these include:

  1. Exclusive discounts on parts
  2. Routine facility inspections
  3. Guaranteed 4-hour response time
  4. Fixed labour costs for one year

The comprehensive services available through the PSP reinforce our commitment to reducing service costs, increasing the reliability of equipment, improving response time, better productivity and compliance with proper safety regulations.
