Dock Levelers Provide Smooth Transition for Heavy Loads

June 18, 2010
High-capacity dock levelers feature smooth-transition technology for safer, more productive lift truck travel with heavy loads.
Rite-Hite has added smooth-transition technology to its line of high-capacity loading dock levelers. The RHH-5000 leveler and RHJ-5000 Jumbo leveler, which can accommodate gross loads ranging from 25,000 to 40,000 lbs., are designed to minimize the risk of back injuries associated with jolts that lift truck drivers experience when crossing the leveler platform and warehouse floor as semi-trailer trucks are serviced. To address high levels of jolting often associated with heavy loads, the enhanced levelers feature a constant radius rear hinge that reduces bumps and gaps between the leveler and the warehouse floor, while a two-point crown control on the leveler’s front lip provides a seamless crossing from the leveler to the truck bed.
