The Crawford DL6020STA step autodock is a dock leveller that provides increased efficiency and safety for the docking process. It has a telescopic lip and self supporting frame for easy integration with a building. It is the base of a complete Load house outside the building. The operation is based on the proven telescopic lip technology which is the universal and most flexible docking system. The Crawford DL6020STA step autodock provides other advantages than a standard telescopic lip leveller.
The design was specifically developed to let a truck dock to the loading bay with closed rear doors. First the truck is put in the right position and then preferably an inflatable dock shelter seals off the loading bay before the sectional door is opened. The last step of the complete dock-in procedure is that the rear doors of the truck are opened. This sequence “dock first – open the rear doors later” provides a number of benefits: saving of energy, improving working conditions in particular for the truck driver, increasing safety of people / goods, and improving the efficiency of the docking process.
