The easiest conversion from truck bed to the load dock

The NORDOCK® SHF Hydraulic FLEX-Lip® dock leveler lip’s design is intended to provide significant cost savings on damage to fragile goods, equipment maintenance, and personnel injuries.

The SHF features single push button control, an integral 1 h.p. motor pump, and a heavy-duty lift cylinder with non-adjustable velocity fuse.

All temperature fluid and full operating range telescoping side guards are standard.

Patented Proven Lip Technology

As the leveler deck lowers, the patented FLEX-LIP® lip design automatically extends. The lip is maintained horizontally in all positions of the platform even in loading operations below the dock.

The danger of grounding low clearance forklifts and trucks while loading and unloading is reduced significantly. Excessive forklift tire wear is minimized, especially in below dock loading operations. Personnel injuries caused by whole body vibration are also considerably decreased which results in savings on injury claims and 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.
Damage to equipment and delayed loading operations can be the result of low clearance vehicles such as electric pallet trucks impacting the lip when the lip angle is too great.
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. The NORDOCK FLEX-LIP® substantially reduces maintenance, product loss costs and leveler structural fatigue.
Especially in loading operations below dock, low clearance pallet trucks can impact the crown angle. This results in greater wear and tear on the lift truck as well as damage to fragile goods. The NORDOCK FLEX-LIP significantly reduces leveler structural fatigue, product loss costs, and maintenance.
Personnel injury cased by whole body vibration is significantly reduced saving on injury claims and employee absence.
Since personnel injury caused by whole body vibration is significantly reduced, savings on employee absences and injury claims are increased.

Easy, safe, simple push button power

The platform rises to its highest position when the button is pressed. When the button is released, the deck lowers the lip to extend automatically into place until the lip lies on the truck floor. Whether the truck is below or above the height of the building floor, the lip stays in the ideal horizontal position.

When the loading or unloading is finished, the platform and lip are automatically returned to the stored position when the button is pushed again.
