Hinge Lip

The hinge lip dock leveller is designed so the platform, when activated, will rise to its’ highest position before the hinge lip swings out automatically. Once fully extended, the platform and the lip will gently lower until it comes to rest on the vehicle bed where it will remain in float mode. The dock leveller will move up and down with the suspension of the vehicle during loading and unloading.

Our hinge lip dock levellers have been designed and tested in accordance with the European standard BS EN1398:2009.

Hinge lip dock levellers are available in three different frame arrangements;

Pit mounted; Ideal for existing precast pits
Suspended; Suitable for pits which require a tail lift recess, these levellers come with integrated kerb angles
Cast in; Suitable for forming a new pit without the use of expensive shuttering

Our levellers are custom manufactured in our UK facility to suit each loading bay application, and each model can be manufactured with a 6000kg or 10000kg capacity. We offer a hard wearing enamel coating as standard in any RAL colour and we also offer a zinc spray finish which is suitable in destructive humid atmospheres and coastal areas.
