The smoothest transition from the truck bed to the loading dock

The NORDOCK model ADF Air-Powered FLEX-LIP dock leveler lip is designed to save significant costs on fragile products damage, equipment upkeep, and personnel injuries.

This ADF dock leveler features Next Generation Air Technology with the patented Protected Single Chamber balanced bag designed and Pull-Action lift system that does not push on the bottom of the deck or pit floor.

Patented Proven Technology

The patented FLEX-LIP lip design automatically extends as the leveler deck descends and holds the lip horizontally in all positions of the platform, even in loading operations below the dock.

The danger of grounding forklifts and low clearance pallet trucks is reduced significantly. Excessive forklift tire wear is decreased, especially in below dock operations. Personnel injuries caused by whole body vibration are also greatly reduced which results in savings on injury claims as well as employee absences.

When the lip angle is too great, it can result in low clearance vehicles, such as electric pallet trucks impacting the lip or the trailer bed damaging equipment and impeding loading operations.
When the lip angle is too great, low clearance vehicles such as electric pallet trucks can impact the lip or the trailer bed resulting in damaged equipment and delayed loading operations.
Low clearance pallet trucks can impact the crown angle, especially in below dock loading operations, resulting in damage to fragile goods and increased wear and tear on the lift truck substantially reducing maintenance, product loss costs and leveler structural fatigue.
Especially in loading operations below dock, low clearance pallet trucks can impact the crown angle resulting in increased wear and tear on the lift truck and damage to fragile goods.  This greatly increases maintenance, leveler structural fatigue, and product loss costs.
