Our Dock Levellers For A Sustainable Loading Bay | Loading Systems

Posted by Liz Seyi on August 22nd, 2023

The growing demand for energy efficiency, safety, and sustainability calls for a new approach. Through constant innovation, we aim to improve not only our production process but also the logistics that support it. Our latest dock levelers are a prime example of this effort. They are designed to enhance sustainability and safety while improving logistics operations.

What is a dock leveller?

A leveller is a loading and unloading equipment used in warehouses to bridge the gap between the dock and the trailer. There are different types of levelers available, including telescopic dock levelers and swing lip dock levellers. They improve safety, efficiency, and productivity.

Efficient, sustainable buildings with a dock leveller

Dock levelers are designed for the most demanding loading bay operations. For example, they bridge the space between the loading bay and the docked vehicle. Thus, it not only makes the shop floor a lot safer, but also more efficient.

Sustainable production

Starting in 2021, our loading bay dock levelers come with a standard powder coating. This coating provides increased resistance to impacts, moisture, chemicals, UV light, and extreme weather conditions. As a result, it reduces the risk of wear and tear issues such as scratching, chipping, corrosion, and discoloration.

More than just a durable design

We strive for sustainability in both production and transportation of our products. Our dock levellers are designed with a low transport position, allowing 50% more loading capacity in trucks compared to our previous design. This reduces CO2 emissions significantly during transportation.

Durable materials ensure long-lasting performance

Dock levellers increase productivity. It is therefore important that a leveller lasts a long time, even in the toughest situations. Our wide range of dock levellers are designed to the highest quality standards.

In addition, we use state-of-the-art production technology. We have a suitable solution for every situation due to our wide range of control methods and options.

Save with sustainable options

For effective climate management, it is important to seal all openings and gaps in all areas of the warehouse. Especially during loading and unloading, there is a risk of energy loss. That is why we offer smart options for our dock levellers. With these, we counter draughts and keep out dirt, vermin and rodents.

Tail lift seal

For optimal protection against moisture, dirt and contamination, a tail lift seal can be installed as an option. The letterbox seal closes the opening for the tailgates at the back of the truck under the dock leveller. Are you interested in more information regarding our tail lift seal? Then read more here.

Air seals

Using air seals for dock levellers has several advantages. Draught seals help improve energy efficiency. They also contribute to improving the comfort and hygiene of the loading area. This makes it an important investment for companies in the logistics sector.
