VL Vertical Storing Dock Leveller

Companies lose an average of one ton of refrigerated air per dock door per year when they use pit levellers instead of vertical dock levellers.

The Blue Giant VL Vertical Storing Dock Leveller helps preserve internal temperatures, lowering cooling costs and preventing product spoilage. When not in use, the VL Vertical Storing Dock Leveller is parked in the upright position, allowing the overhead door to close completely and prevent unauthorized access to the building.

Available in rated capacities of 13,636 to 20,455kgs.

Structural Integrity

A minimum of six heavy-duty U-beam channels are welded to the underside of the deck at dynamic impact points, preventing “dishing” and extending the life of the Blue Giant VL Vertical Storing Dock Leveller by up to 50% compared to competitor models.
