Dock Leveler Installation
For proper dock level installation, it is crucial the installer reviews the edge-of-dock manual and considers the precautions. Initially, it is the installer’s responsibility to evaluate the health of the dock area and make any necessary repairs. All anchors must have a minimum strength in shear of 10,000 lbs force and a minimum of 6,000 lb pullout strength in uncracked concrete. The dock leveler must also comply with all local codes.
