What are Dock Levellers?


Dock levellers are a form of loading equipment commonly used in warehouses and industrial settings. Dock levellers bridge the gap between a docked vehicle and a loading bay, allowing for safe and efficient loading and unloading.

How Do You Keep Your Dock Levellers Safe During the Winter?

Cold Weather Affecting Dock Levellers?


Cold weather can have a harmful impact on dock levellers. Moisture in the oil reservoir freezing over can be a problem for a dock leveller. Such a condition damages dock leveller operation since it prevents the hydraulics from working properly.


Another concern with dock levellers in cold weather is frozen patches forming on the leveller's surface, resulting in slick regions. This will endanger your goods and create a safety concern for workers in and around the loading area. One action to mitigate this risk is is to keep the area around the loading bay entrance warm and industrial doors closed when not in use. This will prevent icy patches from forming on your dock levellers and other critical loading equipment.
