The movement of the door is designed in such a way it can be recovered with a simple opening and closing operation. The door comes with an anti-crash system.

The company claims that the telescopic lip dock levelers are able to overcome the problem with the gaps between the vehicle and loading bay. It is said to be perfect for joining trucks unable to drive close to dock.

Meanwhile, the company’s inflatable dock shelters are elastomeric tubes calculated to round out with the overview of a medium (usually air) to form a close-fitting barrier between a mounting and striking surface.
