Edge of Dock (EOD)
Edge of dock levelers are a great way to conserve space while getting the job done. EODs mount on the dock face and provide a recommended working range of +/-3" and a maximum operating range of +/-5" above or below dock. EOD have a 20,000 Lbs to 40,000 Lbs dynamic load capacity and plate width of 66", 72", 78" and 84" Docks.N.Doors offers with either mechanical or hydraulic operation..
Mechanically-operated edge-of-dock levelers are the largest selling edge-of-dock levelers in the industry. Docks.N.Doors offer either a dual extension spring lift mechanism with proven efficiency and durability. Or a torsion spring, an economical choice while still providing a tremendous amount of value. Careful engineering and rugged construction ensure extended life. Operation is safe and easy, eliminating the heavy lifting that is generally associated with "hook style" EOD's.
Hydraulically-operated edge-of-dock models offer the convenience and safety of push-button control. The hydraulic design, featuring power extension and retraction of the lip and deck eliminating the manual lifting of the mechanically-operated EOD
Pit levelers are convenient when a wider range of height difference between the dock and the trailer or larger capacity compared to an EOD is required. With dynamic capacities from 25,000 Lbs to 50,000 lbs and width of up to 7' and length up to 10'. Docks.N.Doors offers pit levelers that are mechanical, air powered or hydraulic.
Mechanical dock levelers are an economical solution to basic applications, while still providing strength and durability. These levelers use a pull chain activation to raise the deck. The operator then simply walks the deck back down to the bed of a trailer or to a stored position. Although these units require more regular maintenance, the simplicity of install and operation make for an economical solution.
Air-powered dock levelers are an economical alternative to hydraulic levelers, but are still operated with a push-button activation for ease of use. Powered with an airbag or bellows system used to raise and lower the deck. When paired with a planned maintenance program by Docks.N.Doors, these units provide cost savings over the life of the equipment.
Hydraulic dock levelers are push-button activated and have the highest capacity available. They utilize fully powered raise and lip extension functions with hydraulic cylinders and individual or multi-unit hydraulic pump and motor stations. They're also the safest loading dock choice, as these levelers offer a solid state proximity sensors to control deck and lip functions, including automatic return to safe cross traffic position when truck departs.
