A dock leveler aligns a truck's height with the building's height, allowing forklifts or hand pallet trucks to safely load & unload the truck. Dock levelers can be beneficial to almost any loading dock operation.  If trucks are not within the height differential of a dockboard or you want to turn trucks around quickly, then dock levelers are a great investment. 

In the case of an operation loading or unloading one or two trucks per day, the 5 minutes it may take to move a dockboard to the edge of the building and deploy into the truck might be considered a minor time investment depending on the nature of the operation. But consider an operation unloading 12 trucks per day.  12 five minute delays per day is an hour per day of wasted labor.  This makes the ROI of a dock leveler well worth considering.

Nordock has 30+ years of solid performance and a common goal of providing the best possible products and value.  Nordock manufactures a full line of loading dock equipment including dock levelers, vehicle restraints, scissor lifts, truck levelers, dock seals, and a comprehensive line of accessories.  Nordock has the unique capability to design and manufacture specialty engineered products for loading dock, safety, and lift applications.

Nordock Industrial Series Air-Powered Dock Levelers
Nordock's Airdock Industrial Series air-powered dock levelers feature patented Next Generation Air technology and Pull-Action lifting system.

The Auto-Descent lip extension uses the natural weight of the deck to activate the lip, unlike higher maintenance flip lip designs that compromise available lifting power. The Air-Stop Deck Control dock operator has the ability to stop the descent of the deck with a push of a button to avoid an obstruction or for safety and convenience in positioning the maintenance supports. The reinforced PVC coated single chamber balanced airbag is protected over 99% of the time from environmental contamination.
