Safer products. Safer working practices. Always at the forefront of our product development and the way we operate.


The loading bay is statistically one of the most dangerous areas in the workplace, which is why we take our commitment to health and safety very seriously. From the design and build of our loading bay equipment to the performance of our onsite installation teams, health and safety is at the centre of everything we do.

All of our loading bay products are CE-plated and built in compliance with the Machinery Directive 2006/42/EC and all relevant UK and EU standards as a minimum standard.

Transdek’s lift is an extremely well thought-out product that is easy to use, but also enforces safe process discipline through effective safety interlocks. A very good example of how innovative design enables safety to remain front of mind without restricting commercial imperatives.

Safety is a key focus of our continuous development programme. Which puts our product designs at the leading edge of loading bay health and safety.

Features on our products typically exceed legal safety standard requirements. Our recent safety innovations include: a bi-fold bridge plate*, which gives loaders safe access to reach and open vehicle doors after docking; a fully-enclosed, weather-proof 4-pallet yard lift; and safety rails along the sides of our bridge plates. 

We were the first manufacturer to develop a mechanical auto-interlock for the material safety gates on our lift platforms, to integrate fixed emergency-egress ladders in our double deck lift pods and to include light-beam exclusion zones as standard on most of our equipment.
