Sheltered Single Chamber Balanced Air Bag Design
Over 99% of the time, the reinforced PVC coated Single Chamber Balanced Air Bag is shielded from environmental contamination. The Single-Chamber balanced design decreases material, surplus air chambers, and unnecessary seams which eliminates friction.

Pull-Action Lifting System
By using the whole power of the bag to raise the deck, the patented Pull-Action™ lifting system maximizes efficiency. Greater efficiency means fewer bags, seams, travel and cycle time which results in long term, enhanced performance. The open and compact design permits easy inspection of the deck and all working components. This saves time as well as improving safety.

The AIRDOCK® Constructor™ Series Dock Leveler is a self-contained system in which the airbag is stowed away safely from forklift contact. For easy forklift handling, rear pockets raise the leveler from the deck. During forklift handling, the fan motor and lift system are kept entirely safe by the no damage shipping design.

Auto-Descent Lip™ Extension
Instead of the higher maintenance flip lip designs that compromise existing lifting power, the Auto-Descent Lip™ extension activates the lip by using the natural weight of the deck.

Air-Stop™ Deck Control
The Air-Stop™ deck control is an unique option giving the deck operator the ability to halt the lowering of the deck by a push of the button in order to avoid an obstacle or for convenience and safety in placing the maintenance supports.
