Rite-Hite Corporation line of levelers can be configured to meet specific safety and productivity demands of any loading dock operation. The STL hydraulic dock leveler offers fully hydraulic operation and the company's Safe-T-Lip barrier to help prevent vacant dock drop-off accidents. The leveler is equipped with an integral steel barrier that automatically rises into place when the leveler returns to its stored position. The rugged barrier is designed to keep forklifts from running or slipping off the vacant dock when no trailer is present. The unit's slotted lip design also allows the barrier to be easily positioned out of the way for convenient endloading, even below dock level.

The leveler also features Automatic Recycle, which automatically returns the leveler to a safe, dock level position when the truck departs with the leveler lip on the bed of the trailer. This function avoids a dangerous void-in-the-floor condition resulting from a leveler that remains at the bottom of the pit. By returning to dock level, forklifts can travel safety across the leveler when it's not in use. The levelers prevent platform free-fall from any position in the event of early truck departure with a heavy load on the platform. In the event of uncontrolled ramp drop the dependable, hydraulic fuse safety stop system automatically stops the ramp drop by limiting free-fall to three in. or less, thereby helping protect employees and equipment.
