Dock Levelers are fixtures placed right in front of a dock that is made up of a metal plate that helps bridge the gap between the truck and dock since not all trucks are the same size. These levelers operate by a hinge, manually, or automatically. When choosing the dock leveler to be installed you need to consider the truck’s height and loading capacity. Dock levelers types include air-powered, hydraulic, and mechanical. Levelers can also act as barriers for facilities. When not in use the levelers stand in a vertical position, which helps control the temperature inside the dock and keep them clean from outside waste.
Cost of Dock Leveler
The average cost of a dock leveler can range from $4000 to $10,000 on material only. They are worth the investment because not only are they bridging the gap between truck and docking station, but they are very sturdy and can carry heavy loads. They are designed to absorb bumps and shocks throughout the daily loading and unloading. Also, it allows a smooth transition of goods and materials between truck and dock and decreases the chances of employee injury.
