RH13B Dock Levellers

The RH13B Dock Leveller can bridge the distance and height between the loading bays and the body of the lorry, using its hydraulic tilting mechanism and hinged lip.

Its 400mm hinged hydraulic lip is long enough to allow the leveller’s platform to rest firmly on the lorry’s trailer.

This type of Box loading leveller can support loads of up to 15,000 kg, with a maximum working gradient of 12.5%.

There are 4 standard sizes for the RH13B Dock Leveller, with different widths for the hinged lip. We also design and manufacture RH13 dock levellers that are up to 5000mm long x 2400 wide x 800 high*.

The Box Model without letter box uses the leveller as a precast element. This system saves costs and time in installing the leveller, as no pit is required. The work involved in preparing the pit beforehand is not necessary, thus making civil work easier and less complicated, and maintaining the same functions and operability as the other systems, such as the Embedded or Suspended type.

Often it is necessary to consider that trucks have their own loading bridge. For this reason Inkema has also designed the Box Model with a space for the own back bridge of a truck during the loading and unloading of the goods, using a hollow precast element structure. The Precast structure is installed before the floor in the industrial building is completed. A space is left underneath the structure of the Box Model leveller. This allows you to obtain the benefits of the Suspended model and the functionality of the Embedded model, as well as simplifying civil engineering work.

The Inkema RH13B Dock Leveller is composed by three parts:

  • The platform consists of a 6/8mm thick tear plate top, rolled steel sections and side protection skirts.
  • Compact and robust lip made of 13/15 mm thick steel tear plate. The lip is hinged and its end is milled, allowing it to fit against the lorry perfectly and smoothing the lorry’s passage.
  • The lower structure is made from rolled steel sections and the platform and hydraulic group are installed on it.
