The Safety Barrier™ Lip Air Powered Dock Leveler Series features the patented “Next Generation Air’ Technology.

The Air Powered Dock Leveler with a Safety Barrier Lip

The NORDOCK® Barrier Series Air Powered Levelers are the ultimate in safety and strength.  While in the stored position, the stay-put barrier lip avoids accidental fall-off.  The platform is a continuous welded structure with unitized welds at the header plate, beam, beam sections and lugs are built minimum 50,000 – 55,000 PSI yield material.  The beams are formed channel or 6” structural wide flange with welded side guards to provide extra strength.  Side-to-side tilt with no pinch point is provided by the continuous rear hinge.

Protected Single Chamber Balanced Air Bag Design

The reinforced PVC coated Single Chamber Balanced Air Bag is sheltered from environmental contamination over 99% of the time.  The Single-Chamber balanced design lessens material, extra air chambers, and surplus seams which removes friction.

Pull Action™ Lifting System

By using the full power of the bag to raise the deck, efficiency is maximized by the patented Pull-Action lifting system. Greater productivity means fewer bags, seams, travel and cycle time which results in long-term, enhanced performance. The compact, open design permits easy inspection of all working components including the deck. This not only improves safety, it also saves time.

Auto-Descent Lip™ Extension

In contrast to the higher maintenance flip lip designs that compromise accessible lifting power, the Auto-Descent Lip™ extension uses the natural weight of the deck to initiate the lip.

Simple to Install

Since the airbag is safely stored away from forklift contact, the AIRDOCK® is a self-contained system.  Through rear pockets the leveler is raised from the deck for easy forklift handling.  Because of the no damage shipping design, the fan motor and left system is kept completely safe during forklift handling.
