Welch provides a variety of dock leveler options, including:
Hydraulic Dock Leveler
Designed for high capacity warehouses and DCs, hydraulic levelers are workhorses that can tolerate many years of sustained daily use. Hydraulic units are a safe, efficient, high speed choice and they are essential in high volume applications. Hydraulic units are the most common equipment in multi-shift operations that turn many trucks per dock each day. Although they typically cost a bit more up front, maintenance and repair work expenses will generally be significantly less than other options over the useful life of the leveler.
Mechanical Dock Leveler
Mechanical dock leveler systems are manually operated, meaning that they don’t offer quite the same level of efficiency and safety protection of a hydraulic system. These products depend on springs as opposed to hydraulic mechanisms. Easy to use and quite durable, they are an economical option when hydraulic equipment is not feasible.
Air Powered Dock Leveler
Air powered dock levelers are a mid-level option, slightly more dependable than mechanical units and a bit less expensive than hydraulic equipment. They operate by inflating or deflating an air bag that correspondingly lifts or lowers the deck surface. These solutions are not as fast as hydraulic choices, but are uniquely suited for extreme conditions like sub-zero temperatures and corrosive environments. Although generally inexpensive to maintain, air bags must be replaced periodically.
Edge of Dock Leveler
Edge of dock levelers are self-contained mechanisms attached at the edge of a dock as opposed to being installed in a pit in the concrete. While they don’t offer the same range of movement as pit levelers, they feature relatively simple installation and are far less expensive to retrofit. They are a safe, inexpensive option if there is no need to accommodate a wide variety of vehicle or trailer heights in your operation.
