Mechanical dock levelers can have this issue, the problem is usually in the hold-down. Coiled springs are used to power a mechanical leveler. The tension in those springs consistently tries to push the dock leveler up; that’s how it works. When the leveler is not in use, the hold-down is the part of the leveler that keeps the dock leveler at its proper height. The leveler will remain in the up position if the paws, paw springs, or ratchet fail. To ensure that the leveler functions properly, those broken or malfunctioning parts must be replaced. Call Fairmount Door for all of your loading dock equipment repair!
Seals for loading docks are an important part of protecting your building, trucks, and shipments. Between the truck and your loading dock, a seal creates a tight closure from the outside. This maintains a consistent temperature and helps to keep insects, dampness, and other unwanted elements out of your building.
A dock shelter doesn’t provide an airtight seal, whereas a dock seal does. However, because the seal is airtight, it requires more attention to the truck and dock sizes, with less flexibility. Depending on the situation, using a loading dock leveler may make it easier. A dock seal provides the best possible protection to your most important loads when everything comes together and fits.
