Mechanical Dock Levelers

Your loading dock crew works hard, but that doesn’t mean a mechanical dock leveler has to be labor intensive. Serco W Series mechanical dock levelers have set the industry standard for mechanical leveler durability, dependability and operator safety.

ENERGY GUARD Dock Leveler Weatherseal

ENERGY GUARD® is the most effective way to prevent energy loss at your loading dock, as well as block dirt, debris and pests from getting inside. The superior perimeter dock leveler seal closes off any gaps between the dock leveler and concrete pit walls that are typically missed by traditional sealing options, preventing air from seeping in or out while protecting your loading dock. And because no fabric is exposed to the face of the loading dock wall (where trailers and debris could easily cause damage), ENERGY GUARD has proven long-term durability. Even further, there’s no scheduled maintenance needed. When you need improved cleanliness and energy efficiency, ENERGY GUARD is the dock leveler weather seal to choose.

Smart Design Advantages:

  • Factory installed on new equipment orders, no field installation needed
  • Simple and effective design means no parts or assemblies are installed under the dock leveler or pit floor
  • Long-term durability with no fabric exposed to the face of the loading dock wall
  • Expanded sealing range creates an effective perimeter seal up to 9” above dock level. Seal assemblies rotate during operation rather than scrape the pit wall, so no scheduled maintenance is required
  • Rear hinge seal assembly’s durable 2-ply material flexes during operation to block air flow at the rear

Edge-of-Dock Levelers

Serco edge-of dock levelers are an effective, affordable alternative to portable plates. This loading dock leveler mounts to the face of the dock to make loading and unloading trailers easier, and is ideal for medium traffic loading docks. With a simple, push-button style, you’ll get the reliable durability you’re seeking, with improved performance that doesn’t break your budget.

Smart Design Advantages:

  • Open lug-style front lip hinge for improved strength
  • Tire laminated dock bumpers for ultimate protection
  • Reduced crown and extended beveled lip for ease of transition
  • EZ-Hang™ installation tabs to simplify installation and ensure proper alignment.

Dock-Guard Barrier Lip

Prevent accidental roll-off with the assistance of a Serco Dock-Guard Barrier Lip, capable of withstanding impact from a 15,000 lbs. load moving at 5 mph. This super durable barrier lip is stronger than conventional dock leveler lips and requires no additional maintenance. Its solid construction makes it one of the longest lasting lip designs in the industry providing full-time safety and dependability.

Smart Design Advantages:

  • In the stored position, the leveler lip extends above the deck, providing a full-time steel barrier.
  • In the extended position, the lip remains flush with the leveler deck.
  • In a below loading dock application, the safety barrier lip prevents a forklift’s front wheels from accidentally rolling off the leveler.
