The Roadblock UC1700 affect-absorbing urethane industrial wheel chock is orange in color, has a recessed take care of and a mounting hole, and will also be placed against the wheel of a parked truck, trailer, or vehicle to help hold it steady. The chock is made of polyurethane, which resists impacts, wear, and water. It is orange for visibility. The chock’s curved surface allows it to be placed flush to the wheel. The recessed take care of on the back of the chock can be utilized to carry it. The mounting hole enables a rope, chain, or bracket to be connected to the chock. The wheel chock weighs 2 lb. and measures 8.5 x 7.5 x 6.25 inches (L x W x H). (L is length, the horizontal distance from front to back; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point.) It may be used with wheels measuring up to 35″ in diameter and vehicles with a gross operating weight of up to 30,000 lb.
Wheel chocks (also known as wheel immobilizers or chock blocks) are designed to help prevent vehicles from by chance rolling when parked, especially on a grade. Primarily for the safety of workers when a vehicle is undergoing maintenance, or being loaded or unloaded, use of wheel chocks can also reduce property damage from accidents and loss from spillage right through loading operations. Wheel chocks are generally wedge shaped, and the size required depends on the weight of the vehicle, the size of the tires, the steepness of the grade, and the quality of the road surface. Large wheel chocks are frequently made of a durable material with a high strength-to-weight ratio, and include handles or ropes to facilitate manual deployment. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), both agencies of the U.S. Department of Labor, require wheel chocks in several specific situations (including when parking on a grade and right through loading operations).
