If your warehouse is the heart of your business, your loading docks are the arteries. These simple ports are your business’ gateway to the outside world, bringing your products to your customers. So, it is important that your loading docks be well-equipped to handle such an important burden. Having loading dock equipment that works and functions properly is necessary to keep operations running smoothly.
Loading Dock Essentials
The S. W. Betz Company sells, repairs, and installs various types of loading dock equipment, including:
Dock bumpers provide your facility with a necessary level of safety. In both laminated and rubber varieties, dock bumpers help cushion the blow when trailers back up to your loading dock, protecting the exterior of your facility from damage.
Loading Dock Seals are designed to create a tight weatherproof seal against your loading dock that helps maintain the internal climate of your warehouse and reduce energy costs.
Aluminum Dock Plates
In order to easily move products to and from your warehouse, you need to be able to easily maneuver pallet jacks and hand trucks in and out of trucks. Aluminum dock plates serve as a bridge between your loading dock and delivery trucks. These plates are a cost-effective solution to help ease loading and unloading.
For lighter loads, aluminum plates are an ideal choice. However, they are not ideal for larger loads.
Aluminum and Steel Dock Boards
A heavy duty alternative to dock plates, aluminum and steel boards are designed to stand up to even the most demanding warehouse environments. Aluminum dock boards have capacities of up to 15,000 pounds, while steel dock boards have capacities of up to 60,000 pounds.
Dock levelers quickly and efficiently bridge the gap between the loading dock and trailers. These levelers come in two primary varieties, mechanical and hydraulic.
- Mechanical Loading Dock Levelers are ideal for companies with smaller loading docks. Operated manually, these loading docks also have a fairly simple and easy-to-use design that can be implemented into the layout of your loading dock.
- Hydraulic Loading Dock Levelers can handle even higher capacities, making them a good choice for a busy, larger loading dock. They have sturdy platforms perfect for any and all of your shipments.
