At Amber Doors and Loading Bays, we can offer a standard range of loading dock scissor lift platforms, but we can also provide completely bespoke manufactured lifts for both single and double deck vehicles. Scissor lifts are designed and built to create a strong and hard-wearing solution for the loading and unloading of vehicles at loading docks.
Scissor lifts are designed to be able to withstand very heavy loads whilst maintaining stability. To prevent the need for regular maintenance, loading dock scissor lifts are manufactured using maintenance free synthetic bearings, ensuring that the lift remains reliable in the long term.
We recently carried out the installation of a scissor lift platform for the Buckingham Group, on site in Dartford. In order to make the installation process simpler, the scissor lift was delivered to the site by a Hiab crane-mounted truck, enabling it to be lowered into a pre-formed pit directly from the Hiab.
Because of the size of the scissor lift bed, we had to bolt on and weld full length side wings to the lift on site rather than on our premises before transit.
Once the scissor lift was installed, we then fitted safety rails and gates around it in situ. The power pack was then externally installed with all hydraulic hose work fed underground into the pit.
