Bascule Bridges

General Information

Models Include Double Leaf, Single Leaf, and Mini Bascule Bridges

Our Bascule Bridges available in Single, Double or Mini leaf/platforms to temporarily span a traffic way.  Single Leaf Bascule Bridges are a one-way elevated loading platform for heavy vehicles to pass through. Double Leaf Bascule Bridges, on the other hand, are hydraulically operated drawbridges that face each other, and when lowered combine to span distances twice as long as Single Leaf. Finally, Mini Bascule Bridges are vertical storing dock levelers installed outside the building and are used to temporarily span the distance between a fixed dock height and a variable height truck.

Product Information

Durability and Quality

  • Chrome plated, 100,000 psi, ultimate-strength pins provide premium load strength and long life at hinge points.
  • Minimum 1/4-inch-thick steel-reinforced platform minimizes deck deflection, maximizes load stability, and greatly extends the life of the platform deck.
  • Structural steel channels in the transfer bridge provide rigidity and stability under heavy axle loads, ensuring many years of trouble-free use.
  • Chrome-plating improves rod durability and extends the life of cylinders and seals.


  • Single and Double Leaf Bascule Bridges – One-touch operator controls automatically engage and disengage safety wings during raising and lowering sequences.
  • Mini Bascule Bridge — Simple and reliable wall-mounted operator controls offer the operator complete visual contact of the lift during raising and lowering.

  • Maintenance-free bearings at pivot points require no lubrication.
  • For Single and Double Leaf Bascule Bridges, a heavy-duty remote power unit with weather-proof cover is easily accessible for inspection and maintenance.
  • Double wire braided Parker hydraulic hoses resist wear, abrasion, and leaks.
