Powerful Strength For Your Toughest Loads

Facilities that handle heavy loads such as paper, automotive parts or steel require durable loading dock equipment that can stand up to the extreme size and weight of these goods, while maintaining the flexibility and productivity necessary for high-volume traffic. Additionally, these larger loads can also put your loading dock crew at a greater risk for injury, making operational efficiency and safety more important than ever. These Serco products have built a reputation for conquering the special application needs of larger loads.

Powered Dock Levelers

Hydraulic dock levelers with heavier capacities, 60,000 lbs. and higher, are the preferred choice for industrial operations. Special accommodations and options often include:

  • A Dock-Guard Barrier Lip to prevent accidental roll off from the dock due to the lack of visibility caused by oversized loads.
  • Extra-wide and extra-long VERSA series levelers for full-cube and below-dock end-loading, as well as the flexibility to handle heavier material handling equipment.

Vehicle Restraints

Vehicle Restraints

Powered restraints are designed to engage the rear impact guard on trailers equipped with interior/exterior LED lights, optimizing communication and safety for both dock workers and drivers. This makes them the best vehicle restraint choice for many heavy industrial loading needs. Some facilities may require powered wheel chocking systems with interior/exterior LED lights to accommodate trailers without an ICC bar or those that have special configurations that aren’t compatible with RIG-style restraints.

Dock Shelters

Since larger doors are required to accommodate bigger, heavier industrial loads, dock shelters are the most efficient choice for keeping the industrial loading dock dry and productive. However, the type of dock seal or shelter that works best can vary by loading requirements.

Dock Doors

Two types of doors are particularly valuable for heavy industrial docks: powered sectional doors can improve operational efficiency, and heavy-duty, damage-resistant, impactable doors can take the abuse of heavy loads to minimize downtime.
