The PSS-type dock leveller with hinge lip and Fall Guard safety device is a new design in the wide range of PROMStahl products which has been designed to provide optimal safety for the loading house staff. The rapid pace of work involving handling systems in storage places or warehouses can lead to many dangerous and even life-threatening accidents with fork lift trucks. That is why the PSS-type dock leveller is equipped with the Fall Guard safety device. When the dock leveller is in its rest position, a 90 mm section of hinge lip is raised vertically above the platform surface, thus creating an obstacle and preventing the fork lift truck and the warehouse personnel from falling from the ramp.
The stationary dock leveller with swing lip (PS) is a new product of PROMStahl’s wide product range. This top-quality product benefits from over 15 years of experience in designing and manufacturing docking systems. The electro-hydraulic PS leveller is operated at the touch of a button. As soon as the platform has reached its highest position the lip swings out automatically and comes to rest on the lorry bed. During loading and unloading the PROMStahl dock leveller follows the movements of the vehicle (automatic floating position). The PS dock leveller is supplied including frame and installed in the pit as a compact unit in just one step. Additional supports are not necessary. Considerable savings in installation and its tail-lift recess, i.e. the possibility to accommodate tail lifts, are the big advantages of this system. The load capacity of the PS dock leveller corresponds to the axle load limit taking into consideration the most unfavourable loading case. The PROMStahl dock leveller meets the requirements of the most recent European standards (EN 1398) and has passed the GS safety tests.
The combination of the PAS loading ramp with a PT or PS stationary dock leveller is a new product offered by PROMStahl. It is a result of 15 years of experience in dock leveller design and manufacturing. The loading ramp is a complete docking system which is installed as a self-supporting unit in front of the door opening so that the storage area of the building is extended
The PTS-type stationary dock leveller with telescopic lip and additional Fall Guard lock is a new design belonging to the wide range of PROMStahl products to further increase safety during loading and unloading. The rapid pace of work involving handling systems in storage places or warehouses can lead to many dangerous and even life-threatening situations. Bearing this in mind, PROMStahl decided to prevent this type of hazard by introducing the Fall Guard lock. When the dock leveller is in its rest position, four blocking chocks integrated into the platform, move upwards and hence form a stable safety device protecting forklift trucks and the loading staff from falling from the open ramp.
The hydraulic dock levellers PS and PT designed and manufactured by PROMStahl are indispensable in logistics for quick loading and unloading. They bridge the gap between the lorry bed and the building and at the same time compensate for differences in height. The platform and the lip are made of tear plates and can be used for all loading situations.
Optionally available: insulated version.
The combination of the PAT (PAS) loading ramp with a PT or PS stationary dock leveller is a new product offered by PROMStahl. It is a result of 15 years of experience in dock leveller design and manufacturing. The loading ramp is a complete docking system which is installed as a self-supporting unit in front of the door opening so that the storage area of the building is extended.
PROMStahl’s new product, the PTU, is a stationary electro-hydraulic dock leveller with a segmented telescopic lip. It represents the optimal solution for loading and unloading different types of vehicles like for example lorries and vans. This versatility leads to enormous cost savings.
The most important feature of this type of leveller is its segmented (3-part) telescopic lip. Depending on the type of vehicle docked (lorry or van) the operator chooses the related mode of operation on the control unit. For vans, only the 1200 mm segment in the middle of the telescopic lip is extended. In this case the leveller’s load capacity is 20 kN. Thanks to the PTU’s special design, the weight on the van is hydraulically reduced to about 100 kg.
