Dock Leveller Pits

Construction of recesses for installing dock levellers

Self-hanging or Suspended Pit

The self-hanging pit type levellers require no frame for securing them to the pit as the machine already has one. Its main advantage is that the frame and leveller can be installed at the same time, as the frame is integrated to the leveller. There is bottom support required all the pressure is transmitted to the superior edge of the pre-frame of the leveller, leaving a free space underneath the leveller to allow parking of the tail-lift.

Embedded Pit

The embedded pit type levellers require a sub-frame for them to be secured to the pit. The sub-frame is installed when the pit precast is created. It has the great advantage of only being joined to the pit by welding, which makes it extremely easy to replace in the future without the need for any major civils works.

Box Model + Letterbox – Tail Lift Slot

Often it is necessary to consider vehicles with tailifts. For this reason FBS has also designed the box model with a space for the tailift of a vehicle 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, thus obtaining the benefits of the self-hanging model and the functionality of the embedded model, as well as simplifying civil engineering work.

Box Model No Letterbox

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 self-hanging type.

“Our scissor lift has now been repaired and relocated to an extremely high standard, with levelling plates for the vehicle and ramp on the scissor lift. The store colleagues love it and could not express enough the gratitude for its placement under the canopy and out of the elements, as compared to its previous location.”

“Thank you to your engineer who repaired our rapid rise door which has been out of action for a while. The engineer was amazing and a real credit for your business.

“Fen-Bay Services have just finished working on the back gate at our store. I have inspected the work and the gate operation and wanted to report back the fantastic work that the engineers have carried out.”

“Your two visiting service engineers have successfully restored our two roller shutter doors that had malfunctioned earlier in the week. They worked very well and safely. I have thanked them personally for their efforts.”

“I would like to say a big thanks to the team on site yesterday. They managed to fix six jobs which is outstanding. Great communication with site too. Very pleased, thank you.”
