Mechanical dock levelers

Nordock guarantees these products will outperform all others on the market.

Center deck support that lasts: High-quality, consistent placement of welds and proper center deck support allows for even weight distribution throughout the mechanical dock leveler.

Built for strength: Mechanical dock levelers are manufactured in Canada and tested to withstand impact and handle the heaviest loads, with a 33% deck-to-beam weld ratio and up to 15-20% heavier than traditional dock levelers.


The Industrial dock leveler that eliminates pinch points

Nordock products are guaranteed to outperform all others on the market, and these dock levelers are no exception. Their unique open lug design on the front lip eliminates pinch points by allowing debris to pass straight through the dock leveler. Pinch points are often the cause of serious structural damage to traditional dock levelers, often leading to frequent maintenance and high repair costs. The open lug design is available for the Industrial series of mechanical dock levelers.

Comparing a traditional dock lip with the Nordock dock lip that is guaranteed to outperform

Constructed to support the heaviest loads in demanding applications

The majority of dock levelers that are available on the market use inconsistent spot welds on one side of the hinge that provides significantly insufficient support to the center deck. Nordock’s Industrial mechanical dock leveler lip uses consistent 4″ welds that encompass both sides of every hinge, delivering superior center deck support that is able to handle the heaviest loads.

Key features of every Nordock mechanical dock leveler

Each mechanical dock leveler features a continuous rear hinge assembly for long term strength and durability, integral lip and deck maintenance support, an easy clean-out frame design and security night lock for additional protection.
