Pentalift Low Profile Elevating Dock

Cylinder placement is completely beneath the platform eliminating above platform obstructions common to other designs with vertical or mast type cylinder arrangements. Full use of the platform area adds the capability to load/unload in all four directions for greater efficiency and reduced product damage.

A lowered height of only 6” allows ground level access without the need for construction on a pit. With vertical travel of 54”, a Pentalift Low Profile Elevation Dock can accommodate truck/trailer heights from pick-ups to semi-trailers. Since it requires no pit and has the capability to be semi-portable, a Low Profile Elevation Dock is an effective solution for ground level doors, confined spaces and leased building applications. Sizes and capacities are available to suit a wide range of applications.

Ground Level Access:
A minimal lowered height of 6” facilitates easy access for all types of material handling equipment. A 36” long x 60” wide hinged approach ream is mounted on the fixed end of the deck of the elevating dock.

Truck/Trailer Access:
A 18” long x 60” wide hinged bridge plate is mounted on the rolling end of the platform of the elevating dock to facilitate access to the truck/trailer. Bridge plate options include: aluminum bridge plate, larger sizes, one piece and/or split construction.

Pit construction is not required for the low profile model. This saves installation costs and makes relocation easier than it is for pit mounted elevation docks.
