VS Vertical Dock Levelers for Cold Store Facilities
MHE-Blue Giant Vertical Storing Dock Leveler is the perfect loading dock solution for facilities and applications that require strict climate control or high cleanliness levels. It improves internal temperature control, reduces the risk of door damage and minimises debris entry. Trailers typically back into the specially designed loading dock bay and a complete seal is formed between the trailer and inside the facility before the doors are opened, preventing contamination.

KRS Vertical Dock Leveler
KRS Vertical Dock Leveler is suitable for low to medium duty warehouses where there are existing docks and a quick fit solution is required.  The deck is raised and lowered mechanically by a set of counterbalanced springs.  The structure is welded directly onto a steel profile that is mounted on the edge of the dock.  Optionally, a rail can be used to allow the platform to be moved to serve several loading points.
