Unruh Fab Inc., Sedgwick, Kan., added two rack-mounted inclinometers as standard equipment on all of the company's pickup racks and one on its single-sided van racks. The equipment provides a distinct, easy-to-read visual reference to the driver of the truck if it is parked at an unsafe angle for loading or unloading. When truck lean exceeds 3 degrees, the driver should be alert to the fact that the glass might be in danger of falling. Large calibration markings on the inclinometers provide a clear visual indication to the driver of how much the truck is leaning, so adjustments can be made to assure safe loading and unloading.
As of Sept. 1, the inclinometers are standard equipment on all of Unruh's pickup and van racks. The company can provide a simple-to-install kit containing one or two inclinometers, labels and mounting instructions for racks already in service.Unruh Fab Inc., Sedgwick, Kan.
