Dock Leveler & Dock Shelter

Hörmann Dock levellers are well-designed solutions for precisely compensating the differences in height between various lorry floors and ramps. Using a dock leveller, the load can be evenly moved in or out of the lorry in a single horizontal movement. Reliable hydraulic dock levellers are equipped with automatic emergency stop valves in the lifting cylinders which help in securing them.

Hörmann’s customized Dock Shelters and Dock Seals not only protect loaded goods from adverse weather conditions, but also save energy costs by minimizing heat loss. They prevent cold from entering heated buildings and heat into refrigerated warehouses, thus saving energy. When combined with a Dock Leveller, Dock Shelters and Seals ensure a level of efficiency, where complex canopies and ramp assemblies are not required.

Loading Houses

Loading Houses are placed in front of the hall, ensuring optimum usage of hall space right up to the exterior walls. A complete Loading House consists of a pedestal with Dock Leveller, Wall and Ceiling Cladding, as well as a loading opening with Dock Seal/Shelter. When combined with Hörmann industrial doors, these Loading Houses are especially expedient for loading temperature-sensitive goods. Lorries can then dock at a 90° angle or offset to the side at a tight angle. Loading Houses are available as individual units or as a row of houses.
