Loading Dock Levelers
Dock levelers bridge the gap and height difference between the dock and the trailer. They also compensate for the up and down float of the trailer bed during loading. A dock leveler includes a ramp (hinged along its rear edge) and a lip (hinged at the front of the ramp). When not in use, the dock leveler is stored in its neutral position, flush with the loading platform floor. To use a dock leveler, the operator raises the ramp and the lip swings out. With the lip extended, the operator lowers the ramp until the lip rests on the truck.

DLM Dock Leveler Manufacturing has been manufacturing loading dock levelers in the USA since 1961. These premium levelers have been known as the strongest and most durable dock levelers in the industry providing a smooth and efficient loading process. DLM dock levelers can be activated automatically or mechanically and are available as pit-style, edge-of-dock or vertical storing. Each leveler type comes in a variety of sizes and capacities to meet any loading dock requirements.
Hydraulic dock levelers are push-button activated and have the highest capacity available.They utilize fully powered raise and lip extension functions with hydraulic cylinders and individual or multi-unit hydraulic pump and motor stations.
Air-powered dock levelers are an economical alternative to hydraulic levelers, but are still operated with a push-button activation. The use of an air bag or bellows system is used to raise and lower the deck.
Mechanical levelers use a pull chain activation to raise the deck. The operator simply walks the deck back down to the bed of a trailer or to a stored position. These levelers are equipped for extreme float conditions.
DLM Edge-of-Dock Levelers mount directly to the dock face and provide a recommended working range of +/-3″ and a maximum operating range of +/-5″ above or below dock. The units are offered with either mechanical or hydraulic operation.
Mechanically-operated edge-of-dock levelers are the largest selling edge-of-dock levelers in the industry. DLM’s dual extension spring lift mechanism offers proven efficiency and durability. Careful engineering and rugged construction ensure extended life. Operation is safe and easy.
