PUT TO THE TEST -- 3 TIMES!

The SPARK-PROOF chock was successfully tested under extreme conditions at three different locations in 2016: For Resistance to Pull in April at the Association of American Railroad’s testing facility at Pueblo, Colorado (top video) and in May at a shortline railroad (middle video). The bottom video records the use of the chocks at a customer facility in June demonstrating Resistance to Extreme Vibration.

    A New Type of Wheel Chock

    Designed specifically for tank cars and other freight cars loading or unloading hazardous materials, and where a spark from a steel wheel chock could ignite dust or fumes.


    Urethane is truly the Miracle Material — combining great resistance to loads with the ability to compress to half of its thickness and then spring back to its original shape. Urethane will not degrade from corrosive materials and most chemicals.

    Molded transverse ribbing squeegees out water and dirt from rail surface, to increase holding power.

    SPARK-PROOF Urethane Wheel Chocks are tough enough to block a tank car, but resilient enough that the car can be pulled over the chock by a locomotive without derailing. No more trying to yank free a steel chock that is stuck under a wheel. When it’s time to move, just pull the car over the chock and retrieve the chock later.
