A single press of the “dock raise” button raises the deck to full height; the lip will automatically swing out from the vertical position to the horizontal.

By releasing the push button, the deck will automatically lower down onto the vehicle floor.

Upon completion of loading/unloading, the “dock raise” button is pressed once again, as the deck raises up the lip automatically swings back to the vertical position for stowing back in the cross-traffic position.


The 232 offers a 490mm long self-cleaning open lip swing hinge construction made of high-quality durbar plate, superior smooth transition, great slip resistance, durability & high capacity.
The rear hinge assembly of the deck is connected to the lower frame by means of three hinges
strengthened along the 232 leveller’s length by means of 10-12 set profiles.
The dock leveller deck can “twist” and compensate for vehicle “tilt” caused by set loads of the vehicle bed up to a 100mm from the horizontal, 25mm drawn steel pins are used for the lip hinge at the front of the platform top for a robust design and long-life span.
The self-cleaning, open lip hinge construction helping to extend life and reduce maintenance costs of the dock leveller.
In the cross-traffic position, the 233 has been designed with a robust front channel for absorbing the forces created by an emergency stop and where end loads are being loaded below dock height.
