Loading Bay Lifts

Front of Dock & Split Level

Loading bay lifts / dock lifts for front of dock applications are used to transfer loads between rear of vehicle and dock or from dock to ground level. Moving waste bins, roll cages and pallets are very common reason for using this type of safe, efficient and reliable lift.

Also, we offer a large variety of options including interlocked gates and barrier arms, handrails, hinged bridge plates with manual and powered operation, buffers and ramps. These lifts can be floor mounted but more often they are pit installed for flush floor level loading.

In-Dock Loading Bay Lifts

We have loading bay lifts set within the dock or within the building have the advantage of improved security, temperature regulation, hygiene and weather protection. Often the vehicle can reverse directly against the lift and building with a seal for added protection.

The lift is designed to suit your architectural requirements. We can work with your builder to ensure the pit size and aperture are correct and understood. Lifts can be fitted with manual and powered bridge plates.
