Hydraulic dock leveller – this is stored in the dock pit and provides the smoothest transition between the dock leveller and trailer improving safety and productivity at the loading dock. Therefore, preventing injuries and minimising forklift and product damage. The hydraulic positioning of both the lip and platform ensures high reliability and low maintenance of the dock leveller, and push button activation provides the dock attendant with simple control for safe operation.

Manual dock leveller – a dock attendant manually pulls the release-chain lifting the leveller from the stored position and the platform – which is equipped with an ergonomic system that delivers a smooth, consistent experience – is walked down onto the trailer bed.

Vertical storing dock leveller – this is stored upright allowing the truck to fully dock before opening the trailer doors and ensuring superior security and environmental control. Because it is stored vertically in front of the dock door, it acts as a door protection which guards against vehicle impact to the dock doors preventing door damage from accidental impacts.

Edge of dock leveller – a simple dock to truck leveller which is positioned on the edge of the dock which is ideal for trucks with minimal height difference, or if space around the dock is a problem. It also saves time and space by eliminating the need to store, find and move portable plates to correct dock positions.

Container dock leveller – designed so that the trailer can park underneath the dock platform allowing the forklift to access the container on the leveller with ease. The levellers can be mounted inside the building with the cavity under the leveller or alternatively can be mounted in front of the loading docks. These provide room for the trailer under the dock leveller, so containers positioned in the middle of trailers can be entered whilst still on the trailer.
