Loading & Unloading



Yard ramps can be manufactured in various sizes and widths to allow vans and smaller vehicles to access existing loading docks.

Various capacities, widths, inclines, and lengths can be provided to suit your application.

Dock Levellers

Clark Handling Loading and Unloading Equipment Specialists Newcastle UK, supply & install a range of Dock Levellers for bridging the height difference that exists between vehicles and the loading dock, which range from hand-operated Counterbalance Drawbridge Dock Levellers, up to automated Pit Mounted Electro Hydraulic Dock Levellers. These Electro Hydraulic Dock Levellers can be fully interlocked into your current system or new builds for the ultimate safe and efficient operation.

Dockloader / Scissorlift

This fitted unit can be installed either inside or outside a building/door to load and unload vehicles from ground level where no loading bay exists. The Dockloada accommodates a much larger range of vehicle heights than Dock Levellers, enabling the loading and unloading of all vehicles from double-deck trailers to transit vans. The Dockloader can either be fitted above ground and raised to accept all vehicle heights or mounted into a pit so its lowered position is flush with the ground.

Counter Balanced Drawbridge Leveller

Clark Handling Loading and Unloading Equipment, supply and fit Counter Balanced Drawbridge Levellers that are available in various widths and lengths with capacities of either 4000kg or 6000kg. This product is ideal for fitting to existing docks, as it eliminates the need for any structural work.

The Dock Leveller is welded and anchored to a built-in steel channel, 150mm deep, which must exist on the edge of the dock. When not in use, the leveler is stored and locked in the vertical position. To operate the leveler, the foot lock is released and the leveler can then be lowered into the vehicle, using the handle provided. Safety side curbs are fitted as standard. Durbar tread plate is fitted as standard, anti-slip paint is recommended for outside applications.

Bumpers, Restraint and Protection Products

Clark Handling supply and install numerous products that provide protection to the Loading Dock as well as other Loading and Unloading areas. Historically Loading and Unloading areas are hazardous working places where equipment is given the harshest of treatment by the impact of vehicles and forklifts.

To this effect, Clark Handling provides a range of protective products such as Rubber Bumpers, Dock Bumpers, and Rubber Buffers. We supply a range of vehicle restraints such as Vehicle Alignment Curbs, Wheel Guides, and Safety Bollards to provide additional measures to protect buildings and personnel.
