Deciding between a dock leveler and dock lift revolves around the the type of loading dock in use. While most are 48 inches off the ground and can function with a dock leveler, it may be necessary to use a dock lift for other applications.
Dock levelers act as the connector between your facility and the trailer entering the loading dock. A Mechanical lever offers better support and safety for the driver and as well as simple functionality and no energy costs. Southern Dock products and Just Rite carry a variety of dock levelers to meet your specific needs.
Mechanical Dock levelers can also be upgraded to become a hydraulic dock leveler. Our hydraulic levelers are created to give a better product value even with extended use. This makes the loading/unloading process more efficient and most importantly, safe.
Air powered dock levels are an economical upgrade from hydraulic levels and also prevent potential stump-out problems. These levelers provide a smooth transition and are low maintenance while their design structure provides easy access to the leveler pit for maintenance purposes.
In addition to the dock levelers mentioned, we provide speciality dock levelers that are customized for use in the food, beverage, and pharmaceutical industries. These levelers provide clean and energy efficient use of the warehouse environment. Our heavy capacity dock levelers also are ideal for the auto and steel industries and are invaluable in moving a large volume of heavy loads.
In addition to the dock levelers themselves, we provide a range of accessories and upgrades that include vehicle restraint options, seals, and shelters. We also specialize in customizing dock level capacity, width, and length, to create a product that is best suited for your needs.
In plant lifts are the advised answer for ground level applications that take place inside plants, warehouses, and storage facilities. In plant lifts also ensure the safety of the worker by removing the need to manually move freight from within the facility. Additionally, each of these units is customizable for different loading dock applications.
