TRANSLYFT loading bays can be used to compensate for smaller level differences, e.g between the vehicle and the permanent loading ramp. The loading bays are designed and equipped to handle large loads.

At the same time, the loading bay allows for quick loading / unloading of the goods. The entire delivery of goods can be loaded or unloaded in a few operations which saves time. The loading bay is built for heavy loads.

Loading bays are suitable for e.g: 

  • Loading and unloading trucks or containers
  • For a difference in levels in warehouses, stores, basements, staircases etc.
  • Handling goods and pallets
  • Multi-height vehicle docking
  • Roll cage lifting
  • Buildings without raised docks

Our loading bays can be manufactured in ATEX, Hygienic Design, galvanized steel, stainless steel and painted steel.

Loading bay

A loading bay can be described as a platform equalizing the height difference between an unloading/loading vehicle and the warehouse floor. Open yards, a bank, a dock, a warehouse and any other facilities receiving or distributing are all possible locations where a loading bay could be useful.

The potential use includes loading and unloading trucks or containers, handling goods and pallets, multi-height vehicle docking, roll cage as well as handling any delivery related activities by various delivery sites, buildings without raised docks, basements, staircases and warehouses. Suitable for any difference in levels, supports any vehicle size from a small van to a big lorry which is why the loading bay is manufactured to your specific demands.

Loading bay safety


A lot of accidents happen each year during the loading and the unloading of lorries. A bridge plate or a docking station only fulfil the purpose of connecting the levels without assuring any safety from the sides. This leaves the operator exposed to a potential danger. Workers could fall resulting in minor to heavy injuries or even death

That is why a loading bay is a much safer solution because it can be equipped with railings on both sides. If a bridge plate is needed to supplement the lack of one in the vehicle delivering goods, we can add gates that open to secure the sides of the bridge plate enabling a smooth and seamless process. 

Having gates at both the front and the back of the loading bay allows easy access and flow of transported goods.

Forklifts, pallet lifters, roll cages and any other load carriers may be used safely as the loading bay has enough nominal load to support it.

Securing the scissor

As all our products, the loading bay is supplied with all the necessary safety equipment such as safety trip bar to stop the lowering of the table when activated, hence preventing body parts from being trapped.

Different accessories such as chain mesh, roller blinds or bellow guards can be installed to protect the travel zone from unnecessary contact by restricting the possible access between the lowering machine and a person as well as prevent any kind of garbage from falling inside the pit. 

It creates a restricted, safe working environment where the design itself combined with all the safety features prevent risk exposure to the greatest extend possible.

The product complies with all the safety regulations included in the EN 1570 standard regulation regarding lifting tables.
