An edge of dock leveler (EOD) bridges the gap between the loading area and a truck or ramp. In contrast to a dockboard, EODs are attached to the loading dock. Dock levelers are an ideal solution for trucks backing up to a dock. By simply pulling the levelers handle, it will lift over the top truck height for easy positioning.

Use these levelers to correct the height difference between trucks and loading platforms. This helpful tool compensates for 5″ above or below dock levels. To top it off, these heavy-duty products handle capacities of 20,000-30,000 lbs.

Dock Leveler Installation
For proper dock level installation, it is absolutely necessary to review the edge-of-dock manual. In turn, users are able to take essential precautions.
To get started, the installer needs to evaluate the health of the dock area and make any necessary repairs. All anchors in use must have a minimum strength in shear of 10,000 lbs force and a minimum of 6,000 lb pullout strength in solid concrete. Also, the dock leveler needs to be in compliance with all local codes.
