The operation of a loading dock leveler is simple and requires only a single button to set up.  The operator simply presses the button to raise the ramp to its maximum height at which point a lip extends to bridge the gap between the deck and the truck.Loading Dock Levelers

Getting products onto and off from a truck is the main purpose of the loading dock, and one of the main obstacles that stands in the way of the greatest possible levels of efficiency in this area of your business is the difference in height between the back of the trucks that deliver and pick up goods and the dock that they pull up to.  This difference in height, which changes as the truck is loaded or unloaded can make it difficult to get the products that need to be loaded onto the trailer, and hold back staff from carrying out their tasks properly.  Thankfully there are a number of different solutions to help your staff when loading and unloading, and the most effective of these products is undoubtedly the loading dock leveler.

 

In essence, a loading dock leveler is a flat panel at the front edge of the loading dock that can lift or drop in height to provide a smooth ramp into the back of a truck.  There are a number of different designs of loading dock levelers available with a range of different capacities and many of the different models that are available feature a range of refinements that are intended to make the operation of the system a lot more straightforward and safe.

 

The two main concerns that any business must thick about when equipping their dispatch area are the safety and efficiency aspects that any equipment offer.  A loading dock leveler is a system that is primarily intended to improve efficiency in the handling of deliveries, but thanks to the consideration that has gone into the design the leveler can also improve the overall safety of the dock to a level where accidents and damage are reduced a great deal.

 

Most loading dock levelers such as those available from Easy Rack are automatically activated when the truck reverses into place.  This means that the dock is ready for the trailer as soon as it is in place.  Once the truck has been linked into the loading dock by the leveler, the goods can be either loaded or unloaded relatively quickly thanks to the smoother entry that is available.  A ramp that allows for dock staff to use fork lift trucks or pallet jacks to unload the truck makes the whole process a great deal more efficient than other methods.

 

Easy Rack offers a number of different loading dock leveler systems to suit a range of businesses in order to allow you to support a huge range of different loads as they are carried out of the back of a truck.  There are capacities available up to 80,000lb and a number of different operating systems are available including push button automatic systems, and even pull chain so that you can choose the best option for your dock.

 

A number of safety elements are incorporated into the design to prevent accidents including systems to prevent the dock from dropping if there is anything underneath them.  This means that users are protected from the danger of the panel returning to place when they have a limb under the panel.
