PPV/PPVA – Laterally Sliding Drawbridge Leveller

The PPV laterally sliding drawbridge leveller is a mechanically-operated leveller suitable for internal or external loading docks with small to medium height differences to be compensated. The leveller is installed on a sliding rail allowing the leveller to be moved laterally across the dock.Thanks to the large pressure springs which support the weight of the leveller, this product can safely be operated by one person. When the leveller is not in use, it is safely stored in a vertical position thanks to an automatic safety device.
The PPVA model is equipped with a sectioned aluminum lip.
