The Amber Doors team recently installed a dock leveller for the Bridgestone/DHL Coventry Depot. After removing an existing suspended leveller, we replaced this with a new swing lip dock leveller. In addition to installing a new leveller, we also provided a steel cradle for it to sit in.
Swing lip dock levellers are widely used as they are extremely well suited to most docking situations. They are ideally suited to situations when trailers are reversed onto a loading bay to be loaded through the rear doors. This is particularly beneficial in docking areas where space is limited.
To suit our customer’s requirements, the new dock leveller that we installed has the following specifications:
- 6 tonne capacity
- Swing lip
- Hydraulic operation
- Linked with the existing door
- Dimensions: 2000mm x 2500mm x 400mm
At Amber Doors, we provide a standard lip size of 430mm as this will suit most trailers, however, we can supply a larger lip if necessary, in order to service up to 300mm above or below the level of the dock. We are committed to ensuring that our customer’s loading bays are efficient and safe and as a result can provide various models to suit any loading bay.
Whilst we supply a wide variety of dock leveller solutions, our main product features are as follows:
- Electro hydraulic operation - built to BS EN 1398
- Chequered plate platform surface for excellent anti-slip function
- Safety maintenance prop
- Gradient indicators
- Green pilot lamp on the control panel indicates when the leveller is safe to use
- Protection toe guards, complete with black and yellow warning safety stripes
