The system is surface mounted, helping to eliminate the need for building a costly below-grade pit and making installation easy. Its 1-1/8-in. collapsed height makes the dock easily assessable for a variety of trucks and trailers. To ensure safety, the GWL restraint is interlocked to the truck leveler, meaning that the restraint must be engaged and the trailer secure before the truck leveler can be raised. Wheel guides on both sides make trailer alignment fast and accurate. They also help protect the dock platform and enhance dock seal performance. The hydraulic pump, manifold, and oil reservoir are contained in an integral assembly, making the system easy to maintain. All hoses are routed in the leveler platform, away from debris.
