Safetech  offers a range of dock lifts designed for reliability, safety and intuitive use.  

Dock lifts form a critical link between delivery vehicles and the workplace, and can have a substantial impact on productivity and safety.  

Key factors that impact the performance and efficiency of dock lifts include safety and legislative compliance, maintenance costs, intuitive controls, design flexibility to suit individual applications as well as safe and robust boom gates.  

Safetech dock lifts have been installed throughout Australia in companies of all sizes and types, customising the scissor tables to exactly suit specific applications.  

Key features of Safetech dock lifts include remote power unit, pit angles for concrete edge protection, hydraulic load flaps, manual load flaps and a constant running power unit.  

Safetech dock lifts are highly versatile in design, offering different configuration options:  

  • Dock hoists can be cut back into a raised fixed dock
  • Pit mounted in the floor when no fixed dock is available
  • Freestanding in front of a fixed dock or a combination of the above
  • Dock scissor hoists can also be installed in an existing shaft
Safetech’s low profile dock lifts do not require a pit for installation and are available in 1, 2 and 4 tonne models.

Safetech's dock lifts include a market leading boom gate as standard that enhances safety and user convenience.

  • Gas struts housed within the boom mechanism prevent injury to fingers or limbs from pinch points
