The AIRDOCK® Industrial™ Series of Air Powered Dock Levelers is the smart choice for the most demanding loading docks to receive the absolute best long term return on investment available. The patented lifting system utilizes a revolutionary Protected Single-Chamber™ balanced air bag and Pull-Action™ design reduces parts and friction while allowing easy inspection and access to the deck assembly.

The self-contained design provides easy handling and installation with a fully protected bag and a lift system that does not contact the floor of the pit.

Available in capacity ratings from 25,000 to 50,000 pounds in increments of 5,000 pounds, and standard nominal platform sizes of 6, 6.5 & 7 feet wide x 6,8 & 10 feet long. Standard features include full operating range telescoping side guards, night security locks, integral lip and deck maintenance supports, safety black & yellow side skirt labels, and two heavy-duty dock bumpers.


The operator presses the control button until the deck is fully raised. Releasing the button activates the Auto-Descent Lip™ system that extends the lip as the deck lowers placing it smoothly onto the truck bed. The leveler will float up and down and side to side with the truck during loading to maintain lip contact at all times. To store the dock leveler, the operator presses the control button activating the lift system allowing the lip to automatically retract to a pendant position, releasing the button deactivates the air power to store the leveler in a fully  supported position level with the building floor. The standard 16” lip will extend out 11” beyond a 4” bumper and engage a truck 12” above and below building floor level.

Note: Longer lip option reduces above dock service range.


Unitized platform structure with dual side 33% beam to deck weld pattern and continuous welds at the beam to header plate and lugs for maximum strength.

The deck plate, lip plate and beams are constructed from high-tensile steel and safety tread top running surface. The deck support structure includes dual flange style beams, center deck support and welded side guards for superior strength.

The frame has four upright, two forward supports and a fixed continuous smooth transition rear hinge to eliminate pinch, trip or impact point. A security lock system prevents illegal building entry when the overhead door is closed. Full width zinc plated front & rear hinge rods are constructed from SAE 1045 superior shaft and factory coated with anti-seize lubricant. A single NEMA 4 push-button control operates the 120-Volt fan motor.
