The platform, beams and lip are manufactured from high tensile steel (S355J0 / STEEL 52). Both the platform and the lip from the 6 tons have a tear plate surface (8/10 mm and 13/15 mm respectively).The platform and lip of the 8 tons series XFH, XPH have a tear plate surface (10/12 mm and 15/17 respectively), making them suitable for 3-wheel forklift trucks. The lip length is 600 mm as standard with a 72 mm chamfer on the front edge and a lip angle of 5.5 degrees.
Black Anti-Corrosion Coating and galvanised frame components protect the dock leveller against all weather conditions. Standard protection is an anti-corrosive coating and paint finish of 80 micrometres total thickness. The unique design includes a central (main) cylinder, front-mounted for maximum lifting efficiency, a fully controllable lip with nylon rollers, a closed rear hinge, and automatic safety legs with damping rubbers.
Wide choice of control box functions with auto park as standard and integrated operation options with the COMBILOK vehicle restraint, dock door or shelter.
Wide Choice of Lip Lengths
Telescopic lip X-Series levellers offer numerous possibilities and can be customised for your loading dock situation. The length of the platform will primarily be determined by the height difference between the warehouse floor and the expected range of vehicle load beds. In order to guarantee smoother loading and unloading with less physical strain, Stertil Dock Products base its sizes on a lower maximum incline than is stipulated by the EN 1398 Directive.

Interlock Operation System
The X-Series telescopic lip can be positioned perfectly using the three control buttons, and returned to the parked position using the standard auto park function. There are advanced control options 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.
Optimum Safety, Installation and Maintanence
In case of premature vehicle departure whereby the forklift truck is still on the X-Series telescopic 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 X-Series dock levellers can be installed with a base-supported frame (XP) in a closed pit, or a suspended frame (XF) in an open pit. Both types of installation are simple to carry out. Stertil can provide all the necessary information for construction and installation including drawings.
