If you’re looking for loading dock equipment, Welch Equipment offers a complete array of services, products and accessories to keep your warehouse operating at maximum efficiency.
We offer a complete range of hydraulic dock levelers from the very best manufacturers. Upgrade your loading dock equipment by using the latest in industrial and safety design standards. Welch suplies many types of dock leveler options, including:
Hydraulic Dock Levelers
Designed for high capacity conditions, hydraulic levelers are dependable, durable units that can survive many years of sustained lift truck and pallet truck traffic. Hydraulic units are a safe, practical, high speed option for commercial dock levelers. Hydraulic options are the most common equipment in heavy-use customer facilities that turn many trucks per dock , per day. Although they’re more costly than other leveler options in the beginning, repair and maintenance work costs will generally be significantly less than other options over the long term.
Mechanical Dock Levelers
Mechanical dock leveler systems are hand controlled, meaning that they don’t offer the same level of efficiency and safety protection of a hydraulic system. These products rely on a spring mechanism as opposed to hydraulic action. They’re simple to control and relatively durable, although they do demand more frequent maintenance.
Air Powered Dock Levelers
Air driven dock levelers allow customers a “middle of the road” option, more reliable than mechanical units and somewhat cheaper than hydraulic devices. They use an inflatable air bladder that lifts and lowers the deck surface. The sack is raised or lowered at the push of a button. These setups are not as fast as hydraulic choices, but are well suited to inhospitable conditions like frigid temperatures and corrosive substances. Although relatively inexpensive to maintain, replacing air bags can be costly.
Edge of Dock (EoD) Levelers
Edge of dock levelers are stand-alone mechanisms fastened to the top of the vertical dock face outside of the door. Though they allow a smaller working range than pit levelers, they do allow less complicated installation and less expense. They are a suitable and safe choice if there is little variation in vehicle/trailer dimensions.
