Frequently Asked Questions
We know that not everyone is an expert on the products we carry. We’ve answered some common questions for you here to give you some additional information.
What is a dock leveler?
Because docks are built at a set height, and trailers come in different heights, there needs to be a mechanism to safely and efficiently unload and load cargo. Dock levelers adjust height and angle to ensure that the difference between the tractor-trailer bed and dock is bridged. Dock levelers can be hydraulic, air-powered, or mechanical.
What is a vehicle restraint, and how do I choose one?
Vehicle restraints are devices that ensure that the truck does not move while docked. Movement during the loading and unloading of cargo can be dangerous, so a large metal hook and chain that is secured to the base of the dock from the frame of the truck helps to keep the truck steady. As vehicle restraints are primarily a safety device, you will want to choose a restraint that has the best ratings for strength, durability, and reliability.
What is a dock seal or shelter, and how do I choose one?
Dock seals and shelters are designed to ensure there are no gaps between the dock and the truck bed. This is especially important for climate control purposes and has the effect of insulating dock workers from outside weather conditions. Dock seals are pads that the truck backs into, allowing for a clean seal between the dock and the truck. Dock shelters are curtains that sit flush with the truck and don’t create as tight a seal as dock seals do.
Choosing a seal or shelter means trading off between maneuverability and seal strength. Dock seals provide a far stronger seal, allowing for temperature control, while shelters provide more room to maneuver for dock personnel and the truck itself.
