Dock levellers with hinged lip or telescopic lip
Hörmann dock levellers are well-designed solutions for precisely compensating the differences in height between various lorry floors and ramps. Using a dock leveller, the load can be moved in or out of the lorry in a single horizontal movement.
A sturdy steel construction with anti-twist platform easily compensates for lorry tilting, even if the load is not distributed evenly.Reliable hydraulics with 2 lifting cylinders and a cylinder for the lip is the right choice for any situation, easy to operate and, above all, safe: these dock levellers are equipped with automatic emergency stop valves in the lifting cylinders. They secure the dock leveller right away. This is important, for example, if a lorry drives away while a load is still on the platform.
Hörmann’s high automation level ensures a consistently high quality level. All production processes are precisely calibrated and monitored by modern computer systems. This way, large quantities of dock levellers, shelters and seals are manufactured, all with equal precision. However, we also manufacture smaller quantities or customised special solutions according to customer specifications at the same high quality level.
For every loading situation, Hörmann offers the right solution for efficient loading and unloading. You can obtain detailed consultation from your Hörmann loading technology specialist.
Good reasons to try Hörmann Loading Technology
Sustainability and quality go hand in hand. Dock levellers have to withstand the rough day-to-day loading environment. For this reason, all components are manufactured using high-quality materials. The design of all dock levellers corresponds to EN 1398 and, with regard to loading capacity, is dimensioned generously. Particularly sturdy flat anchors, ventilation slots in the edge bracket and adjustment angles to screw ensure reliable fixing in the building structure, one of the most important prerequisites for a long service life
The dock leveller is fit directly in front of the building with a loading house, allowing the building opening to be sealed efficiently with an industrial door. As early as the quotation phase, we are able to provide model statistics defining the maximum wind and snow loads for Hörmann loading houses.
Any unevenness in the door can easily be compensated for using adjustable feet.
Dock seals and shelters are particularly efficient when they are optimally adapted to the docking vehicles and the loading situation. This requires a wide range of flexible solutions.Robust push-in flap dock shelters with different frame constructions prevent them from being damaged during docking.Inflatable dock seals adjust to different vehicle dimensions. Roll-up flaps compensate for even larger differences in vehicle heights. Dock seals and shelters with telescopic link arms or rising roof constructions are recommended to compensate for vehicle movements or when placing interchangeable containers.
From development to production, all Hörmann door and dock leveller controls come from the same source, making them optimally matched to each other. As a result, you benefit from a uniform operating concept with standardised housing sizes and the same cable sets for dock levellers and door controls. Another advantage: If the dock leveller control is placed beneath the door control, both controls can be combined into a single compact unit.
