Dock Levellers by Gandhi Automations offer the most convienient way of loading and unloading equipment.
ISO 9001:2008 certified, Gandhi Automations, since its inception in 1996, has been manufacturing, importing, distributing and installing dock levellers, dock shelters, sectional overhead doors and dock houses.
The electro-hydraulic, mechanical and air-powered dock levellers offered by the company facilitate fast, smooth and safe transition by compensating the difference in heights between the loading bay and the vehicle. These dock levellers are designed as per EN 1398 standards for the most demanding loading and unloading operations.
Dock levellers offered by the company ensure loading and unloading with minimal cost and effort. The loading bay remains with the dock leveller in rest position and the sectional overhead door, closed, until the vehicle is positioned. The driver drives back centring to the dock shelter and stops the vehicle the moment it gets in contact with the bumpers.
The sectional overhead door is then opened only when the vehicle is positioned, brakes applied and engines shut off. This eliminates the exit of hot air, intake of cold air and intake of exhausting gases in the warehouse. After the sectional overhead door opens, the lip of the dock leveller connects to the truck bed for loading or unloading to take place.
Following are the two types of dock levellers offered by the company:
Radius Lip Dock Levellers
Radius Lip Dock Levellers allow the dock to connect with the truck bed, thus making it possible to drive directly with forklift trucks, etc. The self-cleaning lip hinging system does not retain rubbish with automatic end-of-run, maintaining the 25 mm security distance between the folded lip and structure.
Telescopic Lip Dock Levellers
Telescopic Lip Dock Levellers are ideal for connecting vehicles unable to drive near dock, side loading railway wagons, etc. These can be supplied with a lip extending up to 1 m.
