Southworth Products says its Dura-Dock Series loading-dock lifts transfer loads quickly and safely from any truck bed to any dock height, and vice versa, without ramps or inclines. The dock lifts are designed to save time and effort at retail outlets, manufacturing plants, warehouses, and other establishments served by more than one type of truck. Available in 5,000- and 6,000-pound capacities, Dura-Dock lifts work from grade level to a maximum height of 59 inches.
A lift can be installed to accommodate any dock or loading configuration, whether the truck is parked perpendicular or parallel to the dock. Usually mounted in a concrete pit so the unit's lowered platform is at grade level, the lift is even more useful if the location lacks a dock altogether. A drain in the base of the lift prevents standing water if the unit is installed outdoors.
Platform sizes range from 6 by 8 feet to 8 by 12 feet. Lower-capacity models are designed to support loaded hand pallet trucks, while the higher-capacity models support loaded fork lifts. Standard features include a weatherproof pushbutton NEMA-4X control with 20 feet of coiled cord; a diamond-tread steel platform with beveled toe-guards painted yellow for safety; and removable steel handrails with mid-rails and 4-inch-high kickplates.
