The Blue Giant edge-of-dock leveler is a cost-effective solution for the facility that does not require the installation of a loading dock that serves standard trailer heights. Edge-of-dock levelers are user friendly and offer an ergonomic and safer option to dock plates.
Blue Giant offers a pit style dock leveler for every application. These durable units provide a smooth path for cross-docking traffic – reducing the bumps and bouncing that can not only injure a forklift driver and but also damage your equipment and/or material. All models are available in a wide variety of sizes and capacities.
- Hydraulic – Hydraulic lip and deck cylinders increase operating efficiency and reduce maintenance requirements. Meaning you can expect massive cost of ownership savings compared to mechanical units.
- Air-Powered – Designed to operate safely and efficiently under the toughest conditions: temperature, high volumes and caustic exposures. An effective alternative to hydraulic oil powered levelers.
- Mechanical – Very simple to operate, just pull on the chain and “walk” the deck onto the trailer or truck bed. Strong and dependable, available in a variety of sizes and capacities.
Pit Style - Alternative Installs
A vertical storing dock leveler is the ideal solution for the facility that must maintain a strict temperature. Like the name implies the leveler is stored vertically, inside the building, thus allowing the overhead door to close completely to the pit floor. This in turn prevents energy loss, debris / vermin entry, as well as improved security as well as maintaining a clean and energy efficient environment.
