Dock Leveler Installation
For businesses that make an earning by moving, storing, shipping, or importing heavy cargo, dock levelers are an essential piece of equipment. Dock levelers allow heavy loads to be lifted from the ground and moved upwards to reach a commercial door, where the cargo can then be stored. Dock levels are extremely beneficial because they increase worker safety, can effectively move up to 50,000 pounds of weight, and improve business productivity.
But without proper dock leveler installation in a property’s façade, dock levelers are futile tools. If your company needs to bring in or send out large cargo and you do not have a dock leveler foundation and doors that allow you to do so, the team at Preferred Window & Door has the solutions you’re looking for.
Dock Leveler Installation: Concrete Pits
Dock leveler installation is a big project that should be left up to professionals, whether you’re installing dock levelers for the first time or replacing outdated and dangerous levelers. Both hydraulic and manual dock levelers are typically recessed in a concrete pit at the dock. The concrete pit allows for additional stability and security. The engineering and construction of new concrete pits is a highly technical matter – a missed measurement or failure to remove debris from the concrete pit could have disastrous consequences. At Preferred Window & Door, we specialize in the engineering and construction of new concrete pits for dock levelers, as well as repair and maintenance of concrete pits that are already in existence.
