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 their specific needs.
The existing dock height was 43", the trucks to be loaded were as high as 62". This significant height differential would have caused a dangerous percentage of platform incline if a standard dock leveler length was provided.
To address both the safety and operational concerns, Pentalift designed and manufactured a custom 16' long, 30,000 lb. capacity hydraulic dock leveler. The 16' long 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 is your best solution when considering custom loading dock equipment to suit a wide range of applications.
