Kelley Modular Dock Bridges Span Warehouse And Trailer Gap
A Kelley Modular Dock Bridge is specifically designed to span the gap between the warehouse and the trailer. At the same time, it addresses the critical needs of general warehousing facilities at a lower cost of ownership than conventional solutions, such as pit-style mechanical dock levelers. In addition, the Modular Dock Bridge maximizes security, cleanliness and floor space, while also being easy to operate, easy to maintain and reliable.
Dock bridges help maintain a proper door seal in the same way a vertical storing leveler does, allowing the door to seal directly on the concrete. While providing the same performance, dock bridges offer an additional choice to dock levelers for customers that lease their warehouse space and do not want to incur the cost of retrofitting their loading docks or for warehouses with low volume traffic where the expense of pit levelers cannot be justified.
