Drawbridge Levellers

Drawbridge levellers are available in various designs. The drawbridge levellers already differ as to the material they are made of. You can choose between steel or aluminium constructions. The spring-driven support enables you to easily operate the drawbridge leveller via the lateral operating lever. The counterbalance within the spring system is easily achieved and wear-free. The drawbridge leveller contains an automatic parking device that prevents the drawbridge from falling down accidentally provoking major accidents. The fact that the lip plate is slightly angled, makes it easier for your staff to un-/load trucks. You can either choose a fixed-position version or a side-sliding model to make operation easier and even more convenient. Thanks to the drawing bridge mechanism it is sufficient to let the truck stop keep a little more distance to the drawing bridge.

We particularly recommend to use drawbridge levellers as loading ramps if the  loading ramps are outside the warehouses. Drawbridge levellers enable a much more flexible handling of approaching trucks. If required, we will provide you with a bridging plate or loading ramps that easily rest on the cargo area of the truck and can also be easily stored in the warehouse. For further information on loading ramps, drawbridge levellers as well as dock shelters, please contact us for your personal consultation.
