When an international trading manufacturer of electronic components contacted a Pentalift distributor with a unique loading dock application, Pentalift’s in-house engineers designed a dock leveler for its specific needs.
The existing dock height was 43 inches, and the trucks to be loaded were as high as 62 inches. This significant height differential would have caused a dangerous percentage of platform incline if a standard dock leveler length was provided.
To address both safety and operational concerns, Pentalift designed and manufactured a custom 16-foot-long, 30,000-pound-capacity hydraulic dock leveler. The 16-ft platform length decreased the percentage of the incline to be in safe operational guidelines.
In addition to a complete line of loading dock equipment, Pentalift can provide custom loading dock equipment to suit a wide range of applications.
