Taking control

10 June 2024

JOLODA HYDRAOLL has introduced a new control box for its range of pneumatic rollerbed systems. 

The control box has been re-engineered to simplify use and maintenance of the pneumatic rollerbed systems, which are used by transport companies to handle air freight and palletised goods in and out of their vehicles. It promises to help further streamline loading and unloading processes, improve safety measures, lower servicing costs, and minimise vehicle downtime. 

Most commonly, pneumatic rollerbed systems are installed in trailers so that freight can be easily rolled in and out without using forklifts. When the roller tracks are lowered, goods are placed directly onto the trailer floor. Up to four sections of roller track are added along the length of the trailer, which can be raised or lowered individually. This helps to ensure cargo is unloaded systematically and safely and prevents load shift if the trailer is on an incline. The control box is installed on the outside of the trailer and is used to raise or lower each section of roller track.

The control box from Joloda Hydraroll comes as standard with an AutoDown safety feature. An electronic signal from the vehicle’s brake lights activates an override valve, which releases the air from all sections of the rollerbed. This safety feature automatically lowers the rollers if they are still in the raised position when the vehicle sets off. A new magnetic lid ensures the control box is always shut during transit, while a more compact inner design allows the entire internal assembly to be easily removed. 

The new control box features on both the Pneumatic Rollertrack system (built directly into the chassis of a truck or trailer by the manufacturer) and the Modular Rollerbed System (retrofitted on top of any flat surface as a floor-on-floor rollerbed solution).
