The Many Features of Dock Levellers

If you work with any kind of cargo or freight, then you need to get a dock leveller. This is an excellent tool that helps to bridge the gap between your freight and the dock to give a much more smooth unloading process.

These kinds of tools have a number of great features, and it’s important to understand them to recognise why they are such a good choice for your business, so let’s take a look at them.

Different Levellers For Different Needs

There are a large number of different levellers available, and each one is built for a different need.

The most classic type includes the swing dock, which has been designed with swing lip support that helps to unload and load efficiently and safely. However, there is also the teledock variation, which uses the increase of the contact area between the vehicle bed and the dock leveller to enable the utilisation of the load.

Furthermore, there are also plenty of models that are built to handle specific issues within your industry. For example, you can get dock levellers which are good for temperature control, and the handling of larger or smaller items.

The great thing about the dock levellers is that they are built either with hot galvanised steel or simply just galvanised steel. However, both options are hygienic and durable.

This is also a great choice because it is not tied to a standard dimension, and it has various options regarding capacity. You can have anywhere from six tons to 15 tons. This means that regardless of what your business is looking for, there is a design and configuration of a dock leveller which is going to work for you, which means you have plenty of options.

Final Thoughts

It’s clear that there are many features of dock levellers that make them a choice. As a tool, they are exceptionally popular and are frequently employed to make unloading and loading of freight that much easier. Being able to get the custom option for your needs is incredibly helpful, and makes a big difference when it comes to getting the best results. Naturally, we can help you secure a range of different dock levellers, any of which can be customised to suit your specific needs, so just ask. After all, they are very easily configurable.
