Bridgeplates - Mar 2011
This client had a number of loading bays with counterweighted manual levellers which were old, damaged and heavy to operate. It soon became evident that it was much more economical to remove the old units and replace with new equivalent systems.
Thorworld quoted and trialled a number of options before a final specification was agreed on.
The final solution installed on all loading bays was a bespoke B6523 Hinged Bridgeplate (designed to work with the customers current fleet of vehicles), fitted to a goalpost frame due to poor quality concrete work, and dock bumpers to ensure accurate positioning of the vehicle.
