15 years ago an international overnight express courier completed a prototype freight handling terminal. Their goal was to improve the efficiency of their operations. After several successful subsequent installations Pentalift recently supplied four 15,000 lb. capacity hydraulic lift tables featuring a caster deck design. The caster decks allow the freight containers to be easily moved across the loading dock. The hydraulic lift tables have a usable platform size of 9’ wide x 13’ long. Each of the lift tables feature a state of the art hydraulically operated sectional hinged caster deck. The hinged caster deck is lowered/extended during the vehicle loading/unloading operation and is fully retracted/raised when not in use. The hinged caster deck section of the lift is interlocked to the overhead door to prevent accidental use when the door is in the closed position. The energy efficiency of the building is greatly improved as the overhead door can now completely seal the building from the exterior elements when the lift is not in use. The Pentalift hydraulic lift tables installed feature a serrated surface operator walk way (not shown in pictures) for improved safety and a complete set of operating controls on the 42” high guard rail assembly to operate the 7.5 HP power unit.
