The SpeedGuard system from Garlock Equipment helps eliminate falls off flatbed trailers being loaded, unloaded and tarped. One person can attach the system in 10 minutes or less – from ground level – with the heaviest piece weighing 23 pounds, according to the company. The totally integrated system is stored in a compact package on wheels, so it can be rolled wherever it’s needed, inside and outside.

Garlock says SpeedGuard works on almost any flatbed trailer: Insert seven railholders into the stake pockets on each side, drop in six railings, roll the ladder into place, and drop in the last rail section at the back. A system also is available for flatbeds with damaged or nonexistent stake pockets, according to the company.
