Transdek UK has expanded its range of rapid-installation double-deck dock lifts to include units with capacity for up to 24 roll cages.

The lifts, which have a safe working load of 12t, are supplied as fully self-contained pods that can be installed and commissioned in less than two days.

The new 24-cage units are delivered on low-loader trailers, positioned by crane and simply bolted to the ground and building, ready for use.

In contrast, conventional double-deck scissor lifts, which require pits and foundations involving substantial civil engineering works, can take up to three months to install.

The finished structures measure 9.3m long by 4.2m wide and 6.7m high. They include heavy-duty buffers, traffic lights, floodlights, standard or inflatable dock seals, and purpose-built wheel guides with pre-set stops.

A full length, partitioned walkway provides access for workers to both ends of the lift platform.
