PAT Loading Ramp with Telescopic Lip Leveller
Increase the efficiency and safety of your loading facility, enable loading/unloading of vehicles that do not accurately match the dock and avoid time-consuming repeated docking. The flexible loading solution from EBS guarantees docking of various types of vehicles even in hardly accessible areas .
The loading ramp is a complete docking system, which is installed at different angles as a self-supporting unit in front of the door opening so that the storage area of the building is extended.
The PAT loading ramp consists of a PT hydraulic dock leveller with telescopic lip and lateral treads, which are reinforced at the bottom. The PT leveller of the PAT system is operated at the touch of a button; after exact positioning the telescopic lip automatically follows the movements of the vehicle during the loading or unloading process (automatic floating position). The big advantage of this type of dock leveller is the maximum flexibility of the lip contact length, guaranteeing effective loading and unloading even of vehicles that are not completely correctly positioned.
To enable loading/unloading of trucks that dock in with their rear doors closed, we offer the PAT loading ramp with side steps so that the truck doors can be opened once the dock-in is completed.

Make loading and unloading smooth and quick
Even if the truck does not accurately match the dock, there is no need to waste time on complicated repeated docking.
The telescopic lip of the PT hydraulic dock leveller can be extended exactly to the necessary length and accurately positioned on the truck bed.
Ensure a high standard of safety
In order to guarantee the stability of the PT hydraulic dock leveller platform in a situation when the truck departs unexpectedly during loading/unloading, two of the three highest-quality hydraulic cylinders with safety valves are dedicated to the platform lifting mechanism.
Such solution provides a significant increase in the operating safety in emergency situations, compared to devices with one cylinder.
The PT dock leveller is always provided with lateral toe guards to prevent foot injuries when the leveller moves downwards.
Enable docking of vehicles even in hardly accessible areas
The PAT loading ramp with telescopic lip leveller can be installed at various angles (45°, 60°, 75°, 90°, 105°, 120°, 135°) at the front of the building so that it is possible to optimally utilize the available space and to guarantee smooth and efficient loading and unloading operations.
Further installation angles are available on request.
Stepped model for dock-in of trucks with closed rear doors
In the PAT loading ramp model with side steps, the areas on the left and on the right side of the dock leveller are lowered by 300 mm over a length of 1200 mm or 1300 mm so that the truck doors can be opened once the dock-in is completed.
To enable docking of vehicles even in hardly accessible areas, the stepped version of the PT loading ramp can be installed at various angles.
Save time and money on installation and running costs
The PAT loading ramp is the best choice if there is a need to attach a docking system to the building with little preparation and minimum installation time.
The EPDM sealing is installed on three sides of the leveller to seal the gap between the dock leveller and the pit, thus reducing draughts and saving energy.
Rely on German quality
Benefit from precise engineering, durability and reliability of the EBS dock ramps and levellers synonymous with the German quality.
The PAT loading ramp with telescopic lip leveller meets all requirements of the most recent European Standard, EN 1398, and is marked CE.
Additionally, it has been tested by the globally-recognized German Technical Inspection Association TÜV and certified GS for safety (i.e., the equipment meets German and, if available, European safety requirements for such devices).
