Dock Levelers

The dock leveler is an important element of your loading bay. It facilitates optimal loading and unloading of trucks and a smooth transition of supplies and materials from the truck to the dock. Because they see frequent use, it’s important to make sure they’re installed and maintained by a team of experts. Even though standard loading docks are anywhere between 48 and 52 inches, truck heights tend to vary. This can create frustrations in loading and unloading without a properly functioning dock leveler. These operate via a hydraulic lift to correct for the truck’s height. We install all types of dock levelers, including

  • Hydraulic pit
  • Mechanical pit
  • Edge of dock
  • Vertical hydraulic
  • Air-bag pit

 Air Curtains

Warehouses can be easily impacted by temperature fluctuations and pests. While your warehouse’s doors are open, you lose out on the regulated temperature air inside. You then have to spend more on energy bills to adjust. An air curtain is a great preventative measure for these issues every warehouse faces. It mounts above the dock entrance and blows a wall of constant air stream. This keeps your air conditioning or heating inside while preventing outside pests and temperature changes from impacting your operations. Keep your warehouse and employees comfortable, clean, and free of pollutants and pests.

Dock Safety Equipment

Warehouse docks are incredibly busy. There’s plenty of traffic, large equipment, moving parts, and workers moving materials and merchandise. It’s important to keep your people and your merchandise safe in your warehouse and on the dock. Safety systems and accessories like truck restraints, safety lights, and barriers can help prevent accidents and disasters from happening. Here are a few of the safety equipment systems we install and maintain throughout Michigan:

Dock Safety Lights

Interiors of large trucks can get dark during the loading process. The safety lights illuminate the dock and truck with extendable arms so your employees can place them wherever they need for optimal lighting. Additionally, they create an OSHA-compliant work environment.

Barriers

Barriers are a simple and effective method to prevent accidents. They are retractable net or metal barriers that go across the opening to the dock. They can prevent forklifts from falling, runaway equipment from being damaged, and products from escaping on accident.

Truck Restraints

Lock in trucks while your team loads and unloads them with truck restraint systems. These can secure a truck up to 35,000 lbs and are easily connected and disconnected for safety and maximum efficiency. We install hydraulic, mechanical, wheel chock, and electric truck restraint systems, depending on your loading dock style and size.

As with all mechanics and moving parts, loading docks and their equipment require routine maintenance to avoid breakdowns that can hurt your workers, products and halt operations. Productivity equals profitability when it comes to loading, and you don’t have room for downtime. When everything adheres to a strict schedule, even the most minor inconvenience can turn into hours of downtime.
