Bi-Fold, High-Cycle Railgates

Bi-Fold, High-cycle models feature folding platforms ideal for dock loading and utilize a steel roller and leaf-chain pulley drive system which maximizes smoothness of motion, endurance, and strength. This medium-duty railgate is ideal for high-cycle applications in any environment. These lifts are built with the highest quality components and place a priority on function and safety.

Steel Rollers

Steel rollers guide the platform vertically within the rail track and are designed to withstand intensive cycling. Dual sealed, maintenance-free ball bearings ensure the rollers are long-lasting and perform consistently in all climate conditions.

Ideal for Dock Loading

Bi-Fold, High-Cycle models feature folding platforms and a drop down function which allows access to the bed of the vehicle for loading/unloading at a dock or by forklift.
