The platform, beams and lip are manufactured from high tensile steel (S355J0 / STEEL 52). Both the platform and the lip have a tear plate surface (8/10 mm and 13/15 mm respectively), making them suitable for 3-wheel forklift trucks.

Optimum Safety, Installation and Maintanence
In case of premature vehicle departure whereby the forklift truck is still on the dock leveller, the automatic panic-stop activates. The leveller in most cases remains in operation even after a panic-stop situation. The emergency stop button on the control box can also be operated manually. During maintenance, the dock leveller is held safely in position by means of a special maintenance strut. When the leveller is in parked position, it is automatically supported by two cross-traffic safety legs.
The dock leveller can be positioned perfectly using the three control buttons, and returned to the parked position using the standard auto park function. There are several advanced control options which provide additional functions such as door control, shelter control, automated interlock to prevent operation when the dock door is not fully open, and automatic door closure locking until the leveller has been parked correctly. Increased safety with standard 400 mm lip length and 80 mm chamfer on the front edge. The longer hinged lip makes sure that the gap between the vehicle and dock is safely bridged even when dock bumpers are installed.
The severely reduced impact ensures that the risk of damage to goods during loading is minimal, increasing operating life and cutting maintenance costs.
The P-Series offers numerous possibilities customised to your dock for most efficient use. The length of the platform will primarily be determined by the height difference between the warehouse floor and the expected range of truck beds. Easy installation with the P-Series for both the base-supported frame (PP) in a closed pit, or the suspended frame (PF) in an open pit.
