Dock Leveller – Loading Systems 233 Telescopic Lip

The Power Ramp 233 is the newest generation electro-hydraulic dock leveller including a hydraulically operated sliding (telescopic) lip.

The 233 telescopic lip offers some unique advantages in Cold Chain Compliant Dock Configuration over the more traditional horizontal & vertical sing lip levellers allowing for a more usable floor footprint in the building design whilst maintaining a 100% seal of the building to the ambient outside air.

With the ISO dock configuration, the external facing dock door can close in front of the leveller whilst still maintaining maximum protection of the building through the unique building pit design offering great protection from vehicle impacts to door and wall structures.

Dynamic rollover capacity is the actual load that can be safely rolled into the rear of the trailer.
Two standard capacities available including 60KN and 100KN capacities offering a solution to suit almost any application. Heavier capacities can be designed and supplied upon request.

The platform deck & lip are hydraulically actuated via a completely closed hydraulic system reducing maintenance & increasing safety.
Over dimensioned, chrome hardened cylinders off the added advantage of a low working pressure of approximately 100 bars for superior longevity and reliability.

Power & Protection
3 Phase, 415VAC, 50 Hertz, 24VDC Control, IP 65



4-switch operation, movement of the platform and telescopic lip can be individually controlled & accurately moved to the required position in the rear of the truck/trailer.
Press the “raise push button” the platform goes up from the rest position until it reaches the correct loading height just above floor level of the vehicle floor.
Press “lip out push button” lip slides onto the truck floor until the desired position in rear of vehicle is obtained.
When the button is released, the platform and lip will descend automatically to the level of the vehicle bed.
The telescopic lip is fixed into position after being extended to avoid the lip from moving away from the truck floor during loading and unloading. Vehicle suspension is automatically followed as deck “floats” to follow the movement of the vehicle.
After the loading and unloading is completed, the dock leveller 233 can be returned to the rest position by a single button, the “R-button”.
