Copperloy Dock Leveler

An edge of dock leveler is a great solution for a lower budget when bridging the gap between your dock and a truck bed.  They mount directly to the dock face and provide a working range to extend above or below the dock. In contrast to a dock board, 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.

The Copperloy edge of dock leveler is an economical solution for applications that do not support the installation of a pit mount lift table or loading docks that serve standard trailer heights. Edge-of-dock levelers are easy to operate and represent an ergonomic and safer alternative to dock plates.

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.

For additional helpful tips of proper installation, consult with a member of our Copperloy team.  Plus, check out the video below and the owners manual!
