AIR POWERED DOCK LEVELER – THE ECONOMICAL ALTERNATIVE

Air Powered Dock Levelers are similar to Hydraulic Dock levelers, however, they have no legs or rollers. A bag is inflated and raises the deck, deploying the lip which allows for a smooth opening. Then deflates when connecting with truck or trailer. This air dock uses a low-pressure lifting system with little to no maintenance and most economical alternative of all the docks. Furthermore, it requires less cleaning for a long equipment life.

 

AIR DOCK SAFETY

Air Dock Equipment are ideal for high frequency shipments with heavy loads and are virtually resistant to abuse. An additional safety feature provided are mechanical fall safety legs. Safety legs help with “stump out” issues for dock levelers, which occurs when a trailer bed’s height is below dock level and the safety legs hit their stops. When this happens, only the lip of the dock can travel with the bed of the trailer, without the dock leveler deck moving. Wilcox door service installs and services Air-Powered Dock Levelers all over the Toronto and Hamilton Region with a 3 hr response time.

WHY CHOOSE A AIR DOCK LEVELER VS. MECHANICAL DOCK LEVELER

Quite simply, this is a more environmentally friendly lifting system using air. This avoids using oil-powered hydraulic that requires more maintenance. Load capacity is a little better on the mechanical level but you would save power on the usage of the air-powered dock leveler.
