Loading Dock Equipment
A dock leveler is a bridge that covers the gap between a facility and the transport vehicle, protecting both, your products during the loading/unloading and your staff.
Before you purchase a dock leveler, you need to know what dock leveler will work for you. First, you need to pick a type (mechanical, hydraulic, or air-powered dock leveler), then you need to pick the right size, and finally, you need to pick your dock leveler's capacity.

Types of Dock Levelers:
Mechanical Dock Levelers (Pit-Style Levelers)
These are economical solutions to basic applications, while still providing strength and durability.
These are the safest loading docks, as they prevent free fall in a truck pull-out situation.
These levelers are an economical alternative to hydraulic levelers but are still operated with a push-button activation for ease of use. These usually don't require any electricity in the dock pit.
A great solution for lower budgets.
By storing the dock leveler in the vertical position, it allows the overhead door to form a perfect seal to the pit floor, offering unmatched environmental control for customers with food storage or temperature-sensitive applications.
These levelers are hydraulically operated.
