Edge Of Dock Leveler 6

Bluff EP Series

Dock Levelers correct height differences between loading docks, loading platforms and truck or trailer beds. Bluff’s edge of dock leveler is designed to have a working range of 5″ above and 5″ below dock level. Because of gradability problems, dock levelers are for forklift truck use and not recommended for use with stackers.

Dock Leveler Installation

Dock-Leveler-Installation-001-LG
We recommend professional installation for this product since welding is required. Safety is really important in our industry.

There are two different scenarios when installing a dock leveler on your warehouse loading dock. You may have either an embedded steel channel already in place or it may be a bare concrete edge. We prefer to see a picture while quoting this product’s installation. If you don’t have a steel channel, an approach plate is necessary in order to weld the edge of dock leveler properly. Please see installation guide on the top right corner of this page.

Steel & Aluminum Wheel Risers
