Edge of Dock Levelers - Critical Piece to Safe Dock Design

Freight depots with trucks of a consistent truck bed height opt for edge of dock levelers.  They are low cost and don't require breaking concrete.  They normally mount to the face of the dock and can be placed in a small recessed pit. This is a light duty low cost alternative to the in pit style full size dock leveler. Also used when a pit cannot be utilized or as a retrofit. It is typically used in an environment with minimal difference between trailer bed and dock and the unit is typically mounted to the dock face.   They are not recommended for high volume dock traffic!
