What are Dock Levellers?

Dock Levellers are a crucial component of modern loading bay operations. They play a pivotal role in bridging the height gap between a warehouse or facility floor and the bed of a vehicle, facilitating efficient loading and unloading processes. These sophisticated mechanisms are designed to ensure that goods can be seamlessly transferred between a vehicle and the facility with minimal effort, while also enhancing safety and productivity.

Key Features of Dock Levellers

Steel Construction: Dock Levellers are typically constructed from steel, making them robust and durable. They are engineered to withstand heavy loads and provide long-lasting performance.

Load Distribution: Dock Levellers are also designed with a focus on even load distribution. The support frame is carefully engineered to minimise long-term fatigue and ensure that loads transferred from the deck are correctly distributed.

Versatile Deck Design: The deck of a Dock Leveller allows limited diagonal torsion movement without compromising its structural integrity. This flexibility enables the loading and unloading of vehicles with canted beds.

Electro-Hydraulic System: Dock Levellers are equipped with an electro-hydraulic system powered by a motor rated between 0.75 and 1.1 kW, depending on the leveller’s size. These systems require a 415/440V 3-phase power supply and earth.

Corrosion Resistance: To ensure longevity and reduce corrosion risk, Dock Levellers are coated with high-specification rust-inhibiting paint, protecting them from the effects of environmental factors.

Compliance with Standards: All Dock Levellers from Chase Equipment meet the latest European Standards and adhere to the safety requirements of the European directive BS EN 1398:2009, ensuring their quality and safety.
