Dock levellers for a sustainable loading bay

Rising requirements require a new approach to energy efficiency, safety and sustainability. By constantly innovating, not only the production process becomes more and more sustainable. The logistics power behind it is also being improved. Our latest dock levellers are a perfect example of this.

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

Since 2021, our loading bay dock levellers have been powder coated as standard. Powder-coated products are more resistant to factors that can affect coating quality. This is due to their resistance to impacts, moisture, chemicals, ultraviolet light and extreme weather conditions. This in turn reduces the risk of scratching, chipping, corrosion, discoloration and other wear and tear issues.

More than just a durable design

Not only are we working to make production as sustainable as possible, but we also try to make transporting our products to customers as sustainable as possible. For example, our unique way of designing our dock levellers ensures that they have a low transport position. This allows us to load 50% more into the trucks, compared to our old design of dock levellers. This change has meant a huge reduction in CO2 for transporting our goods.

High-quality materials for a long service life

Dock levellers increase productivity. It is therefore important that a dock 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.
