Hörmann: Quality Without Compromise
Manual Dock Levellers
Manual operation with nearly identical loading heights.
In cases where lorries with almost identical loading heights are used, example for uniform fleets, the proper planning of the dock height results in minimal height differences to the loading surface of the vehicles.
With a standard rated load of 60 kN, the MLS and MRS mechanical dock levellers are able to meet most demands and are the most economical solution for each situation. They are simple to operate via a control bar.
DOCK LEVELLER MLS
Fitting in the building floor.
MRS DOCK LEVELLER
Fitting in front of the building, either with vertical or horizontal buffer supports. Recommended dock shelter DSS with 900mm depth.
Easy operation via gas spring support.
Bascule bridges sideways shifting for fitting to ramps.
Hydraulic Dock Leveller
Comfortable operation with great leveling.
Hydraulic dock levellers are available as hinged lip or telescopic dock levellers. With a length of up to 5 meters, they can bridge large height differences between the rap and the lorry loading level.
All Hormann dock levellers comply with the requirements of EN 1398, the “Dock Levellers - Safety Requirements”.
HYDRAULIC DOCK LEVELLER DETAILED QUALITY
The flat transitions form the platform to the telescopic lip and to the loading surface ensure safe loading.
STABLE TELESCOPIC LIP
The telescopic lip with a robust front lip is reinforced throughout. The 12/14 mm thick running plate is made of a single piece.
ROBUST HINGED LIP
The open design with hinge points close to one another prevents the accumulation of dirt, such as wood shavings, in the hinge.
SAFE, RELIABLE OPERATIONS
2 hydraulic cylinders ensure the balanced, reliable and most importantly, safe operation of the dock leveller. It comes equipped with automatic emergency-stop valves.
A high-quality running plate, 6/8 or 8/10 mm thick, with a standard rated load of 60 kN permanently carries goods and transport equipment.
REINFORCEMENTS ON THE OTHER SIDE
The number and design of the girders prevent deformation (track groves) beyond the degree required by En 1398.
Steel meeting steel results in a noise that is neither pleasant nor healthy for employees. Rubber buffers on the telescopic lip dock leveller pedestals reduce the contact noise when positioning the platform.
SIMPLE SOLUTION BY HLS
HLS hydraulic dock leveller made of high-quality materials and with as well-optimized design which results in an inexpensive base price. Its quality is equal to dock leveller HLS-2 in every respect.
LOW TRANSPORTATION COST
The specially designed structure of HLS makes low transport height of 380mm, cost reduction of up to 50% is possible.
