FLEX-LIP® Series

The FLEX-LIP® Series Air-Powered dock leveler is designed to provide substantial lifetime cost of ownership savings by reducing equipment maintenance, damage to goods and injury to personnel resulting in increased safety and productivity. The patented lip activation maintains the lip horizontally on the trailer bed in all positions providing the smoothest transition available from truck bed to dock floor. The patented lifting system utilizes a revolutionary Protected Single-Chamber™ balanced air bag and Pull-Action™ design that reduces parts and friction while allowing easy inspection and access to the deck assembly.

NORDOCK model ADF Air-Powered FLEX-LIP® dock leveler lip is designed to provide substantial cost savings on equipment maintenance, fragile goods damage and personnel injuries.

The ADF features Next Generation Air™ technology with the patented Protected Single Chamber™ balanced bag design and Pull-Action™ lift system that does not push on the underside of the deck or pit floor.

Patented Proven Technology

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

The risk of grounding low clearance pallet trucks and forklifts while loading and unloading is significantly reduced and excessive forklift tire wear, especially in below dock loading operations, is minimized. Personnel injury, caused by whole body vibration, is also significantly reduced, saving on injury claims and employee absence.

Simple. Safe. Easy. Push button power

When the button is pressed the platform rises to its highest position, releasing the button allows the deck to descend the lip to extend into place automatically until the lip rests on the truck floor. The lip remains in its optimal horizontal position whether the truck is above or below the building floor height.

When loading/unloading is completed, pushing the button again returns the platform and lip automatically to the stored position.
