Loading Dock Lifts

The NOVA Dock Lift is the most versatile way to serve the most varied fleet.  By keeping the loads level, loading and unloading is safer and easier than ramps and steep inclines, and utilizing almost 5′ of travel height, NOVA Dock Lifts can service almost any vehicle or trailer you back up to them.

 

THE ADVANTAGES OF A NOVA DOCK LIFT

When the loading area just doesn't lend itself to a dockleveler or Edge-of-Dock, take advantage of a NOVA Dock Lift.  Safer than ramps and inclines, faster than manual loading or unloading, and less expensive than a recessed truck well, the NOVA Dock Lift can be a smarter way to go.

 

BUILT TO LAST

NOVA Dock Lifts are manufactured to withstand all types of weather.  Constructed with structurally reinforced heavy-duty steel platforms that minimize deflection, and their wide stance and rugged base construction to create one of the most ridged and stable dock lifts in the industry.  Both the NOVA NDL6x8 and NDL6x9, 5,000 lb. and 6,000 lb. capacity units come standard with a galvanized base and legs for added protection even in the harshest environments.

 

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • Diamond tread deck for improved traction
  • Pre-wired power unit and control panel
  • Maintenance strut supports lift for servicing
  • Bevel toe guard platform
  • Diamond tread hinged throw-over plate with lifting chain
  • Removable steel handrails with mid-rail
  • 4″ side kick plate and safety chain
  • Conforms to ANSI MH291 Standards
  • NEMA 4 push-button control pendant with 20′ coil cord
  • Oversized, low pressure hydraulic cylinders
  • Flow control valve with adjustable lowering time
  • Excess flow protection for controlled decent of lift in the unlikely event of a hydraulic line rupture

 

OPTIONS

  • Grade level access ramp (for above ground lifts)
  • Accordion skirting or roller shade
  • NEMA 4 enclosures
  • Environmentally friendly biodegradable hydraulic fluid
  • Mechanical wheel chock to prevent fork truck from inadvertently rolling off lift while elevated

LED Vehicle Restraint Lighting Kits

The NOVA Vehicle Restraint Light Kit is a “Restraint Condition Awareness System" (R-CAS) which provides extra visibility around the dock door for the dock attendant.  More visible than standard control box communication lighting, this system uses multi-colored LEDs around the corners of the dock door to alert dock workers to the safety status at the dock position.  Compatible with most rotating hook restraints on the market.

 

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • The standard unit utilizes 48″ of RED, GREEN and AMBER*  LEDs in the upper corners of the door to inform dock attendants, supervisors and truck drivers of the condition of the dock from a distance.  *AMBER use is based on OEM fault conditions.
  • Fully programmable LED controller and power supply included in the standard kit.
  • An extended vision (EV) version of the interior lights provide 50% more LEDs than the standard kit providing even greater visibility to the dock position.
  • Optional exterior light wands are available to enhance the truck driver's view and condition awareness.  Designed to fit where traditional stop & go lights don't, these wands can be installed at eye-level with the truck's cab for better visibility.
  • The exterior LED wands are also available to mount directly to NOVA Dock Seals and Shelters when used in tandem on a NOVA dock seal.  These 8′ or 4′ sections also act as guide lights to aid the truck driver to position truck.

LED-Illuminated Door Safety Kits

The NOVA Door position light kit is a Door Condition Awareness System (D-CAS) which informs drivers of the state of a drive-through overhead door even when the driver is unable to see its position.  A 10′ colored LED Light strip is mounted to both the inside and outside of the door.  A driver pulling in or backing in is supplied with door travel information. 

 

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • LEDs are off (or solid red) when door is down, flashing red when in motion, and solid green when door is fully open.
  • Reduces door and vehicle damage, lost product, and unnecessary costs when installed.
  • Acts as a power loss indicator – LEDs flash RED if the operator loses power.
  • When installed in firehouses and EMT stations, the Red LEDs preserve night vision and reduce the need for harsh white lights during evening hours.
  • Compatible with most commercial garage door operators.
  • Optional Blue Light (BL) feature informs awaiting vehicles if there is already a vehicle on the other side of the door; potentially reducing loading and unloading delays caused by the need to move because the bay already has a truck inside.
