Generally, decisions on which type of leveler best suits your company are based on frequency of use, maintenance availability, and budget constraints.
Push button levelers, such as hydraulic or air powered levelers, are the easiest to use and lowest maintenance option. Mechanical levelers are the lowest price option.
Our dealership network sales force can work with you to find the leveler and restraint choice that best suit your needs.
Leveler capacity can be calculated by combining the weight of your fork truck including batteries and attachments to the total weight of the freight being carried. Other factors worth noting are the frequency of loads, future increases in fork truck size or load size, and dock height. Our dealership network sales force can work with you to find the leveler capacity which are best suited to your needs.
Vertical levelers are most often used in food warehousing or food processing facilities. These units store vertically allowing the overhead door to seal tightly to the pit floor reducing outside air infiltration and increasing pest control. Vertical levelers can also allow the swing doors of semi-trailers to be opened inside of the building. They are the easiest levelers to clean around and inspect. Our dealership network sales force can work with you to find the leveler design which is best suited to your needs.
Truck restraints are the best way to protect your people from the dangers of a truck leaving the loading dock prematurely. Truck restraints help communicate the loading and unloading process to the truck driver as well as preventing a truck from leaving the dock while loading and unloading are still taking place. Truck restraints are available as both active and passive style restraints. An active style restraint removes the gap between the trucks rear impact guard and the restraint while a passive restraint is a simple barrier to the trucks rear impact guard. Restraints can be interlocked to powered dock levelers forcing your people to use the restraints and providing the safest environment for loading or unloading a truck possible.
Our dealership network sales force can work with you to find the restraint design which is best suited to your needs and help you apply them to your building operation.
