MaxPro® Paint Process:
All Maxon liftgate products come standard with MaxPro® paint. MaxPro® is a state-of-the-art painting process that consists of stellar pre-treatment, an aluminum rich primer and an exclusive patented polyurea top coat.

Optional Galvanized
If you operate in tough winter conditions, you need maximum protection from the elements. Now, Maxon provides the industrial strength option of a fully galvanized GPT, for the longest gate life. This is an option for all GPT models.

Extruded Aluminum Platform
The lightweight , extruded all-aluminum platform design with recessed hinges provides a flat loading surface over the entire width of the platform. The platform features dual assist torsion springs that minimize the opening and closing force.

GPT bolt-on
Bolt-On Extension Plate and Steps Simply said, the bolt-on extension plate and steps is superior to the previous weld-on method for two main reasons: it overcomes corrosion issues induced by welding & repainting and it simplifies installation.

Cart Stops
Cart Stops are an available option in both single and dual versions. The new design features a simple locking pedal that allows the operator to activate the use of the cart stop(s) at the operator’s discretion.

Walk-Ramp Compatible
The GPTWR shares all the features and characteristics of the GPT, but is also compatible with a walk ramp. The walk ramp can be accessed without any movement of the gate.

Max On-Lock
By special order request (SOR) all GPTs can be ordered with the Max On-Lock kit which makes them compatible with the most common vehicle dock restraint systems.
