Dock Leveller Load Testing

Designed and constructed a large load test rig to enable testing and certification of a range of dock levellers, all in accordance with BS EN 1398:2009.

Accolade Measurement Ltd were instructed to load test a range of dock levellers (hinged & telescopic lip; 6,000kg to 10,000kg capacity), in accordance with BS EN 1398. We designed and constructed a bespoke test rig for this purpose. Test loads were applied incrementally and deformations monitored.

Findings from this testing enabled us to contribute to discussions had by ALEM (The Association of Loading and Elevating Equipment Manufacturers) regarding potential improvements to the British Standard.
