January 20, 2016, 4:48 pm - Some lift table applications call for an extremely long platform, perhaps to handle steel pipe, long lengths of lumber, hydro poles etc. A single set of scissor legs may not provide the required stability for the extended length. To properly support this long load it is common to manufacture lift tables with 2 or even more leg sets positioned “end to end” with one common deck assembly. Now the load is supported in multiple positions under the length of the load, increasing the stability.This is referred to as a tandem lift table design. The total lifting capacity determines the individual capacity of each of the leg sets. For example, a 12,000lbs tandem design could utilize (2) scissor leg sets, each with 6,000lbs capacity, or (3) leg sets, each with 4,000lbs capacity. The leg sets are positioned under the common deck assembly to support the total 12,000lbs load. The length of the platform and the required vertical travel will determine the number and length of leg sets used. Contact your Pentalift Sales Representative for more information.

January 12, 2016, 8:10 am - There are two common methods to install an Edge of Dock (EOD) to the front of the building's foundation wall. At many loading dock areas it is quite common for a steel angle iron or a steel channel to be cast directly into the concrete at floor height. If the steel plate is there, then the EOD is welded directly to the steel plate. If there is no embedded steel angle, then the EOD is bolted directly to the front of the foundation at the shipping door. Once the EOD is in place, then the dock bumpers are bolted into position using concrete anchors to the foundation wall, one on either side of the EOD.
