Airbag & Air Cushion Recovery

Gerlock’s Air Bag Recovery services are highly sought after. Uprighting an overturned trailer always comes with the risk of momentum causing the trailer to topple over the other way! The clever use of Matjack air bags and air cushions allows teams to upright fully loaded trailers in a controlled environment. Airbag and air cushion recovery have been shown to reduce any additional damage to your cargo and your vehicle.

Yes, using this technique to lift overturned trailers is a lot faster than traditional recovery techniques. That being said, the main benefit of using air cushions is the added safety it brings to the vehicle and to everyone involved in the recovery process.

Traffic Management

The safety of everyone on the scene is our top priority. Why? The data says it all:

The Emergency Responder Safety Institute recorded 65 deaths of first responders struck by vehicles in 2021!

This is why Gerlock’s Incident Management team puts such a large emphasis on traffic management. Our team will coordinate with local police departments to ensure that oncoming motorists are aware of the situation ahead. Whether traffic simply needs to slow down and merge into another lane or the roadway is completely blocked, we will ensure both the smooth flow of traffic and the safety of all first responders on scene.
