American Door

  • Dock Levelers

American Door / Blue Giant dock Leveler incorporates a "floating" rear hinge, otherwise know as Maintained Tilt, that allow the deck plate to tilt to accommodate canted load beds. When integrated with an American Door / Blue Giant Vehicle Restraint, the result is a dock leveler solution that reduces movement of the load bed and optimizes safety and efficiency.
