To better serve you, we recommend providing a completed worksheet so we may understand the dimensions of your dock and freight received.
There are a variety of factors affecting the function of wheel risers, which without careful consideration, may cause them to not function as intended. If you are still unsure of whether you require wheel risers or maybe an alternative solution, we feel a short conversation over the phone is the easiest method of getting you started in the right direction.
To ensure every wheel riser stands up to the Bluff MFG guarantee all Wheel Risers are reviewed by an engineer before the order is sent out.
Risks of Loading Below Dock Level
No support from Load Backrest
In an ideal loading environment, at or above dock level, the load back rest supports the pallet load when entering and exiting the trailer; conversely, loading down into a trailer takes away this support when entering and exiting.
Low Clearance Heights
Trucks coming in with low floor heights often have the additional disadvantage of low top clearance. Not only does this decrease the available top clearance for equipment entering the trailer it also creates a gap between the top of the truck and dock seal header which allows rain, dust, & outside temperatures to affect the loading process.
Rain and Oil
The risks are not always readily apparent, but rain and oil combined with wood floors make for a slick operating environment. In these conditions operators need sufficeint speed to climb out of the truck, risking dumping a pallet or worse trapping your equipment in the trailer.
