In order to facilitate?material handling,?loading docks?may be equipped with the following?dock equipment:

  • Bumpers ? protect the dock from truck damage, may also be used as a guide by the truck driver when backing up.
  • Dock leveler ? a height-adjustable platform used as a?bridge between dock and truck, can be operated via mechanical (spring),?hydraulic, or?air powered?systems.
  • Dock lift ? serves the same function as a leveler but operates similarly to a?scissor lift?to allow for greater height adjustments.
  • Dock seals ? compressible foam blocks against which the truck presses when parked; seals are used at exterior truck bays in colder climates where this will provide protection from the weather.
  • Truck or vehicle restraint system (dock lock) ? a strong metal hook mounted to the base of the dock which will hook to the frame or bumper of a trailer and prevents it from rolling away during loading operations, can be operated via manual, hydraulic, or electrical systems; this system can replace or work in conjunction with?wheel chocks.
