Ensure Better Workflow While Minimizing Chronic Workplace Injuries
Loading & unloading products with conventional portable dock plates at the dock can lead to chronic workplace injuries. The design of outdated portable dock plates can result in dock shocks and body vibrations resulting in chronic neck and body injuries, and product spills and equipment damage.
To avoid these conditions, it’s important to invest in high-quality and built-to-last dock levelers with smooth transition designs.

Another feature that is unique to the H1 series is the solid state proximity sensor which helps control all dock leveler functions.
Series H2 Hydraulic Dock Levelers
Series H2 have hydraulically-operated lips and decks that help with both efficient and smooth dock leveler operation. The lip levelers act like night locks, providing security and safe cross traffic support.

Series MPL Mechanical Dock Levelers
Manually activated, the MPL mechanical dock levelers use extension-spring counterbalance and pull chain operations. In other words, no straining or lifting is required.
MPL mechanical dock levelers are available in different capacities and in both 18” and 20” lip options. For unmatched support and strength, these levelers offer dual 60,000 lb. safety legs. In MPL, mechanical dock levelers lip and deck are constructed of 55,000 lb. minimum yield steel tread plate.
Series C Mechanical Dock Levelers

Available in both mechanical and hydraulic models, the edge of dock levelers are economical and best for applications that don’t support the installation of pit style levelers. They are a safer choice when compared to dock plates. Additionally, they are also ergonomically efficient.
Hydraulic Edge-of-Dock Leveler
Embedded with solid-state technology, hydraulic edge of dock levelers offer convenience and quality similar to hydraulic dock levelers but are available at competitive prices. They are super easy to use and are available in various dynamic capacities such as 20000, 25000, 30,000 and even 35000lb.
Mechanical or Bar Lift Edge-of-Dock Leveler
If you’re looking for an economical, low-maintenance, easy to operate and durable dock leveler with dynamic ramp capacities, then look no further. Simply position the bar, pull it back and down and just push the bar in the forward direction. This act will extend the lip. It’s as easy as it can be.
