Dock Levelers – Orange County
When it comes to loading docks, Raymond West features a complete array of services, products and accessories to keep your warehouse running smoothly.
We offer a complete array of hydraulic dock levelers from all of the most trusted manufacturers. Modernize your loading dock equipment by adopting the latest in industrial and safety design standards. Our company offers many types of dock leveler options, including:
Designed for high capacity conditions, hydraulic levelers are durable, long lasting units that can tolerate many years of constant lift truck and pallet truck traffic. These types of units are a safe, practical, high speed alternative for commercial dock levelers.
Hydraulic levelers are the most widely used equipment in high-volume customer facilities that turn many trucks per dock , per day. Although they’re more costly than other levelers up front, maintenance and repair work expenditures will usually be lower than other options over the useful life of the leveler.
Mechanical dock leveler systems are manually operated, meaning that they don’t offer the equivalent efficiency and safety protection of a hydraulic system. These products rely on a spring mechanism instead of hydraulic pumps. They’re simple to control and relatively sturdy, but they do need a fair amount of regular maintenance.
Air controlled dock levelers allow customers an “in between” alternative, more dependable than mechanical units and less expensive than hydraulic mechanisms. They use an inflatable air sack that lifts and lowers the deck plate. The bag is raised or lowered at the flip of a switch.
These systems are not as fast as hydraulic options, but are well suited to extreme conditions like sub-zero climates and corrosive substances. Although relatively inexpensive to maintain, renewing worn-out air bags can incur substantial cost.
Edge of Dock
Edge of dock levelers are stand-alone mechanisms mounted to the top of the vertical dock face on the outside of the door. Despite the fact that they offer a smaller working range than pit levelers, they offer easy installation and less expense. They are a good and safe option if there is minimal variation in vehicle/trailer height.
