Provide Accessibility to Your Dock with Dock Levelers
Dock levelers offer access between the facility and the truck. These solutions are designed to create a ramp connecting the two, providing a pathway for forklifts and pallet trucks to retrieve items. Whether it’s taking items from the truck or placing items into the truck the dock leveler system offers easy access. These solutions are pit-mounted at the dock in order to be flush with the ground for safe transportation.
Pit-mounted dock levelers can either be Hydraulic, Mechanical, or Air-Powered with each option consisting of different capacities, price ranges, and benefits. Hydraulic dock levelers make use of a hydraulic piston underneath the dock plate to lift the it up and set it back into the pit. Mechanical dock levelers use a chain hoist for lifting and setting back into place. Air-Powered dock levelers make use of an accordion-style air bag system underneath the dock plate for lifting and setting.
Pit-mounted dock levelers are great for dock applications where the ground is level or applications where the ground is slanted coming into the dock.
