Dock Levellers

Dock levellers bridge the gap between a loading dock and a truck or trailer, providing a smooth and safe transition for forklifts and other material handling equipment during loading and unloading. They are crucial in facilitating efficient and ergonomic movement of goods, minimising the risk of accidents and damages.

Key Features:

  • Durable construction with robust materials ensures long-lasting performance and support for heavy loads.
  • Various types available, including hydraulic, mechanical, and air-powered, to suit different loading dock requirements.
  • Height adjustability allows seamless alignment between dock and truck/trailer, accommodating various vehicle heights.
  • Smooth and controlled operation enhances safety, reducing the potential for accidents and equipment damage.
  • Safety features such as lip extension, toe guards, and safety barriers prevent personnel from falling off the dock.
  • Customisable options available to meet specific load capacities, platform sizes, and environmental conditions.

Dock Shelters

Dock shelters provide a weather-tight seal between the loading dock and the truck or trailer, protecting the goods being loaded/unloaded and the personnel involved. They help maintain a controlled environment inside the facility, prevent energy loss, and improve operational efficiency.

Key Features:

  • Various types available, including retractable, inflatable, and curtain-style shelters, to suit different loading dock configurations and requirements.
  • Durable materials, such as reinforced fabric or impact-resistant panels, ensure longevity and withstand harsh weather conditions.
  • Effective sealing mechanisms, including side curtains, top head curtains, and adjustable side pads, create a tight seal around the vehicle.
  • Energy-efficient design minimizes air infiltration, reducing heating or cooling costs and improving overall energy efficiency.
  • Reduces exposure to external elements, such as rain, wind, dust, and pests, protecting goods and personnel from damage or contamination.
  • Customisable options available to accommodate different vehicle sizes, door configurations, and specific operational needs.
