DOUBLE DECK LIFTS

Award-winning modular lifts fitted in 1-2 days for the fast, safe, low-maintenance loading of all fixed double deck trailers

OUR DOUBLE DECK LOADING SOLUTIONS

Our award-winning double deck lifts are designed to seamlessly integrate fixed double deck trailers in to your distribution network. Combining engineering strength with precision ergonomics, our lifts provide the fastest, safest and most reliable means to load double deck trailers.

Each modular loadhouse unit is pre-tested, pre-clad and delivered in a plug-and-play format* for installation straight on to your yard in just 1 to 2 days. Our rugged, low-maintenance designs guarantee you a lifetime of dependable service.

No matter whether you run the tallest UK double deckers, or ultra-low-floor, wheelbox-type vehicles, our unique hydraulics configuration* ensures you can service all double deck types, without additional civil works. Each lift is customised to give you the most efficient loading possible for your specific operation.

Double Deck Lifts

Modular, plug-and-play design*

Delivered as pre-clad, pre-tested, surface-mounted units* for fitment straight on to yard or internal precast slot. Self-levelling feet and adjustable dock plate accommodate variable yard gradients and dock heights

Two-section loadhouse for rapid install*

Transported in two sections, roof and base, for rapid, 1-to-3-day install* – minimises cost and disruption of install. Easily moved, if required – avoids dilapidation charges and write-off/re-purchase costs

Stress-engineered loadhouse

Loadhouse and lift structure engineered for durable, lifetime operation in rugged logistics environments. Integrated dock bumpers and impact-dispersal system minimise potential damage from reversing vehicles

Single-ram hydraulics*

Simple, low-maintenance design (compared to scissor lifts’ 2 to 16 rams). Lift stroke compatible with loading all vehicles – including ultra-low-floor double deckers and home delivery vans

Rugged lift platforms

High point-load lift platforms engineered to withstand MHE operations for the fastest loading. Lifting mechanisms also give 2-3 times faster raise/lower speed than scissor lifts

HMI touchscreen controls*

Technologically-advanced main control panel provides rapid-diagnostics pictogram for fast, simple self-fix, which minimises downtime. Mobile login option further reduces call-out costs and enables remote troubleshooting

Twin-interlocked safety gates

Front and rear material gates are both electrically and mechanically interlocked. The front gates lock out to provide safety rails along the side of the bridge plate

Integrated safety systems

Our loadhouse pods include fully interlocked and automated exclusion zones, traffic lights, interior lighting, loading lamps, segregated personnel walkway and (optionally) doors to give operators unrivalled safety

THE CASE FOR FIXED DOUBLE DECKING

The case for fixed double decking has never been stronger. The latest wedge-type fixed double deckers carry up 100% more load, compared to single deck equivalents, effectively halving distribution mileages, fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.

At the same time, fixed-deck wedges carry up to 40% more payload than stepframe powered-deck trailers, which are handicapped by both the extra weight of the onboard hydraulics and the balance of weight sitting over the rear axles (which tend to overload before the whole vehicle reaches maximum capacity). The extra payload generates mileage and operational cost savings of up to 29%. They also offer maintenance costs as much as 70% lower than powered deckers.

To find out how your operation, too, could benefit from fixed double decking, we would love to chat with you.

With their unique features the lifts are the ideal loading solution for our own innovative double deck trailers, which set new standards for the industry.

Logistics Project Facilitator at Arla

For double deck vehicle unloading, Transdek’s lifts are the best bit of equipment on the market and have significantly speeded up the unloading of delivery cages by providing a direct run-through to the bottom deck of our trailers.

DC Operations Manager at TJ Morris (Home Bargains)

The new lift has speeded up double deck unloading on our inbound operations significantly and given us an extra loading bay, which has allowed us to cope with increased traffic at the site.

Chief Executive at Fowler Welch

As a result of fitting the Transdek lifts, we’ve been able to half the loading time of our double deck trailers, as well as increasing safety for our loaders and drivers. Another major benefit for us is that the machines will comfortably service our changing fleet profile, as we switch to Transdek’s Wedge and other forms of double deck trailers to further increase our logistics efficiencies in the future.

Central Operations at Matalan

Each of the four loading bays was installed in less than 2 days with a very high level of professionalism.

Facilities Manager at Wincanton-Screwfix

Transdek’s double deck lifts offer the perfect solution, meeting our requirements for both fast and safe loading. Transdek designed the system to achieve a direct loading capability onto the lower vehicle deck, significantly improving our loading speeds.
