Our installation team showcase how Safetech’s expertise and talent can overcome the greatest of challenges.
Both the patient transport lift at the Epworth Hospital and this Dock Hoist at Bexley North presented very challenging site conditions and accessibility restrictions.
Tight corridors and small openings made installation difficult for both projects. But through the work of our talented Installation Engineers and our on-site techs, we were able to come up with solutions to get the jobs done efficiently.
Epworth Hospital Patient Lift
For the Epworth Hospital patient lift, a crane was used to get the lift close to the opening, but then we used a custom Gorbel monorail system to slide the platform into place.
Ergonomics were considered to ensure a smooth installation without risk of injury to the team.
Bexley North Goods Hoist
Bexley North was a unique challenge. The narrow street and small doorway meant only smaller vehicles and forklifts could be used during the install, so larger cranes could not be used to remove the existing Dock Hoist or insert the new Safetech Hoist.
To overcome this, the existing table was cut down into manageable pieces for removal. For the new replacement, our skilled Engineers designed a platform that consists of 3 manageable pieces, that can be assembled in position without compromising its load capacity or structural integrity.
If you have a complex site and everyone else has said they can’t help. Give us a call, because chances are, we can!

Gundagai Meats in southern New South Wales had an unusual problem with their current dock loading solution, which Safetech were more than capable of solving. Standard docks are usually built to work with a standard truck type, providing a narrow range of dock loading heights. But Gundagai Meats have a wide range of trucks coming in to load produce, both large and small.
The added complication of needing a climate controlled environment to protect the produce, as well as restraining vehicles to prevent truck creep was also important.
So, careful planning was required.
Enter the 2x custom step down 714h Dock Levellers, fitted with the Pit Bull vehicle restraint and the Safetech Inflatable Dock Shelters.
The Dock Levellers were made to service truck beds from 1000mm to 1600mm, which is well outside our standard Dock Leveller range. Sporting the optional galvanised finish, they were then mounted on our free-standing dock frame.
Controlling the Docks is intuitive, using the custom IDD panels from outside the docking bay.
