Vertical Storing Hydraulic Dock Levelers
Designed to store in a vertical position completely inside the facility, vertical storing dock levelers are the preferred choice for cold storage and temperature-controlled facilities. By having the dock leveler store inside the facility, the overhead door is able to close flush to the floor, eliminating air gaps typically found with pit-style dock levelers. The applications can also be configured to allow the swing-out doors on refrigerated trailers to actually open inside the facility, eliminating the mass loss of cold air that would occur if the doors had to be opened prior to backing into the loading dock. This package also helps seal the gaps that can exist once the trailer is parked against the dock bumpers and the leveler is positioned for loading and unloading.
