Swinging lip hydraulic dock levelers are the most commonly used type in loading and unloading operations. The structure of swinging lip hydraulic dock levelers, consisting of lip, platform and frame, is made of RAL7016 painted galvanized steel sheet. The main platforms of the swinging lip dock leveler are made of 6-8 mm thickness of drop pattern SD37 quality galvanized steel sheet. C and L shaped profiles are strengthened by welding to the main platform. The lips of dock levelers are made of 12-13mm thickness of SD37 quality galvanized steel sheet with drop pattern. It is produced in accordance with EN 1398 norms. It can reach up to 640 mm above the loading area and up to 300 mm below the loading area.
Telescopic lip hydraulic dock levelers are the most suitable solutions for places where high thermal insulation is required. The structure of telescopic lip hydraulic dock levelers, consisting of lip, platform and frame, is made of RAL7016 painted galvanized steel sheet. The main platforms of the telescopic lip dock leveler are made of 8-10 mm thickness of drop pattern SD37 quality galvanized steel sheet. C and L shaped profiles are strengthened by welding to the main platform. The lips of dock levelers are made of 12-13mm thickness of SD37 quality galvanized steel sheet with drop pattern. It has a beveled edge and is angled to better adhere to the truck bed. It is produced in accordance with EN 1398 norms. It can reach up to 640 mm above the loading area and up to 300 mm below the loading area.
PFI manufactures aluminum hydraulic dock levelers. The advantages of using aluminum compared to galvanized steel are: prevention of rust formation and ease of shipping. It is the most ideal solution for corrosion resistance and for the storage of cooled foods.The structure of our swinging lip aluminum dock levelers is designed to be used in forklift eyes. In this way, our dock levelers can be easily installed to the pit by a forklift. The use of aluminum guarantees greater durability over time compared to standard loading dock levelers, as it does not require surface retouching (paint galvanizing) and does not rust. For these reasons, it is an excellent choice for the cold logistics industry. It is produced in accordance with EN 1398 norms. It can reach up to 640 mm above the loading area and up to 300 mm below the loading area.
Dock houses are economical insulation solutions that contribute to energy savings and improve the working environment. These solutions combine all the components required for the loading unit: dock levelers, dock shelters and sectional doors. A dock house is created by covering insulated panels of 40mm thickness on a galvanized steel frame. The ceiling structure is designed with a slight inclination for rainwater and snow that may accumulate on it. The dock house creates a ready-to-use space inside the building by allowing the loading and unloading area to be moved outside the building. It does not require major building renovation. It is the system used to prevent heat loss during loading in insulated loading areas.
Standard dock shelters are the most common model of dock shelters. They are used where high thermal insulation is not required. It consists of an aluminum profile attached to the outer wall of the loading compartment, a PVC sheet surrounding the profile, and black PVC coated sheets at the front to stick to the truck.
Inflatable dock shelters are generally used in areas where thermal insulation is highly required. It is the one of the most critical part of cold chain logistic operations. Inflatable dock shelters inflates the top and side cushions, by a fan, until they stick to the walls of the vehicle. This system is definitely the most practical and convenient solution because it automatically adapts to any isothermal vehicles size.
Dock shelters with cushions are used to minimize air permeability when approaching the loading areas of small vehicles other than trucks. The dimensions of these dock shelters are determined according to the size of the sectional doors used in the loading area. The clear passage dimensions of the sectional doors and the interior dimensions of the dock shelters will be the same. Although the standard cushion widths are 300mm, pad widths can be increased upon request.
