FLEX-LIP® Series

NORDOCK Model SHF Hydraulic FLEX-LIP® dock leveler lip is designed to provide substantial cost savings on equipment maintenance, fragile goods damage and personnel injuries. It is the smoothest transition from the truck bed to the loading dock.

The SHF features an integral 1 h.p. motor pump, single push button control and heavy duty lift cylinder with non-adjustable velocity fuse.

Full operating range telescoping side guards and all temperature fluid is standard.

Patented Proven Lip Technology

The patented FLEX-LIP® lip design extends automatically as the leveler deck descends and maintains the lip horizontally in all positions of the platform, even in below dock loading operations.

The risk of grounding low clearance pallet trucks and forklifts while loading and unloading is significantly reduced and excessive forklift tire wear, especially in below dock loading operations, is minimized. Personnel injury, caused by whole body vibration, is also significantly reduced, saving on injury claims and employee absence.

Simple. Safe. Easy. Push Button Power

When the button is pressed the platform rises to its highest position, releasing the button allows the deck to descend the lip to extend into place automatically until the lip rests on the truck floor. The lip remains in its optimal horizontal position whether the truck is above or below the building floor height.

When loading/unloading is completed, pushing the button again returns the platform and lip automatically to the stored position.
