When it comes to loading docks, Welch Equipment Company supplies a complete line of products, services and accessories to keep your warehouse performing at the highest level.
We offer a complete range of dock leveler equipment from the world’s most trusted manufacturers. Upgrade your loading dock equipment by using the latest in industrial and safety design standards. Our company provides a variety of dock leveler options, including:
Hydraulic Dock Leveler
Designed for high capacity conditions, hydraulic levelers are workhorses that can stand up to many years of steady lift truck and pallet truck use. Hydraulic units are a safe, efficient, high speed option for commercial dock levelers. Hydraulic levelers are standard equipment in around the clock customer operations that turn numerous trucks per loading dock each day. Although they cost more than other leveler options up front, maintenance and repair work expenditures will typically be quite a bit lower than other options over the long term.
Mechanical Dock Leveler
Mechanical dock leveler systems are manually controlled, meaning that they don’t provide the equivalent efficiency and safety protection of a hydraulic system. These products rely on springs instead of hydraulic systems. They’re simple to use and fairly sturdy, however they do need more frequent maintenance.
Edge of Dock Leveler (EOD)
Edge of dock levelers are stand-alone units fastened to the top of the vertical dock face on the outside of the door. Despite the fact that they allow a smaller working range than pit levelers, they feature less complicated installation and less expense. They are a suitable and safe alternative if there is minimal variation in vehicle/trailer height.
Air Powered Dock Leveler
Air powered dock levelers offer customers an “in between” alternative, more reliable than mechanical units and somewhat cheaper than hydraulic devices. They engage an inflatable air bladder that lifts and lowers the deck surface. The sack is expanded or contracted at the flip of a switch. These setups are not as efficient as hydraulic choices, but are perfect for hostile conditions like frigid weather and corrosive substances. While maintenance is generally not expensive, air bag replacement can be costly.
