Gandhi Automations unveils variety of Dock Levelers & Sectional Overhead Doors

Gandhi Automations has widely recognised the position of India's top entrance automation and loading bay equipment company with years of hard work, innovation, commitment to quality and reliable customer service. The company is also proud to be certified to ISO 9001 : 2015, ISO 14001 : 2015 and ISO 45001 : 2018. Since its inception in 1996, it has been manufacturing, importing, distributing and installing products that are problem free and easy to operate.

The company offers complete logistics solutions by providing Dock Levelers, Dock Shelters, Sectional Overhead Doors and Dock Houses. Electro-hydraulic Dock Levelers offered by Gandhi Automations are not only a bridge for connecting a vehicle, but also facilitate fast, smooth and safe transition by compensating the difference in heights between the loading bay and the vehicle. This contributes to minimising energy usage and savings on heating and chilling costs resulting in maintaining the quality of the transported goods. Dock Levelers offered by Gandhi Automations are designed as per EN 1398 standard for the most demanding loading and unloading operations.

Efficient loading and unloading the goods
The importance of efficient loading the goods has always been evident, and it has increased over the years, essentially for two reasons: the lesser availability and the higher cost of manpower. Consequently lesser qualified manpower is being utilised which leads to damage to the goods.


The cost of loading and unloading the goods can be calculated precisely and is exactly definable, which allows for a scientific approach to find out the investment that goes into the process. Gandhi Automations has always designed solutions based on such scientific approach and feedback from clients. The dock levelers offered by the company ensure loading and unloading with lesser effort and minimal cost.

It is possible to load and unload your products in a safe way and in the process, obtain remarkable energy savings. The dock leveler remains with the loading bay in rest position and the sectional overhead door closed, until the vehicle is positioned. The driver drives back centring to the dock shelter and stops the vehicle the moment it gets in contact with the bumpers.

The sectional overhead door is then opened only when the vehicle is positioned, brakes are applied and engine is shut off .This eliminates the exit of hot air, intake of cold air (or the opposite in hot area and inside air conditioned places). After the sectional overhead door opens, the lip of the dock leveler connects to the truck bed for loading/unloading to take place.

At the end of the loading/unloading the dock leveler is put in rest position and the sectional overhead door is closed, without moving the vehicle. The vehicle then departs at the end of the process. Following are the four types of dock levelers -

  • Radius Lip Dock Levelers are available in multiple size and capacities. It allows the dock to connect with the truck bed, thus making it convenient to drive directly on and off with forklift trucks etc. Also the self-cleaning lip - hinge system does not retain dust and dirt which allows a smooth operation.
  • Telescopic Lip Dock Levelers are ideal for connecting vehicles unable to drive near dock that is sea containers, side loading railway wagons etc. These Dock Levelers can be supplied with a lip extending up to 1 metre.
  • Edge-of-Dock Levelers is developed in compliance with the latest European safety standard, EN 1398. It has a capacity of 6000 kilogram and is suitable for use with all types of material handling equipments.
  • Forklift Roll-Off Barrier Lip Dock Levelers is newly introduced product which adds a run-off protection which prevents accidental forklift roll-off when the Ovehead door is open and no trailer is stationed at the dock. These dock levelers are designed and built to provide all the benefits of the hydraulic dock leveler along with the additional benefit of providing a formidable barrier.
