When it comes to loading docks, Welch Equipment Company offers a complete array of products, accessories and services to keep your warehouse running smoothly. Welch supplies a wide range of hydraulic dock levelers from the industry’s top manufacturers. Improve your loading dock equipment by deploying the latest in industrial and safety design standards. Our company offers a variety of dock leveler options, including:
Hydraulic Dock Leveler
Made for high capacity conditions, hydraulic levelers are workhorses that can survive years of constant lift truck and pallet truck use. These types of units are a safe, efficient, high speed alternative for commercial dock levelers. Hydraulic levelers are the most common equipment in around the clock customer environments that turn many trucks per dock each day. Although they’re more costly than other types of levelers at the outset, maintenance and repair work expenses will typically be significantly lower than other options over the useful life of the leveler.
Mechanical Dock Leveler
Mechanical dock leveler systems are hand operated, meaning that they don’t provide the same level of efficiency and safety protection of a hydraulic system. These products depend on a spring mechanism as opposed to hydraulic pumps. They’re easy to operate and fairly sturdy, although they do demand more regular maintenance.
Air Powered Dock Leveler
Air driven dock levelers give customers a “middle of the road” alternative, more dependable than mechanical units and less costly than hydraulic devices. They use an inflatable air capsule that lifts and lowers the deck surface. The bag is expanded or contracted at the push of a button. These solutions are not as fast as hydraulic alternatives, but are suitable for severe conditions like frigid temperatures and corrosive chemicals. Although relatively inexpensive to maintain, renewing worn-out air bags can be costly.
Edge of Dock
Edge of dock levelers are stand-alone devices affixed to the top of the vertical dock face outside of the door. Although they offer a smaller plate travel range than pit levelers, they feature relatively simple installation and a lower cost. They are a suitable and safe alternative if there is minimal variation in vehicle/trailer height.
