House of Doors offers a complete line of loading dock products including dock levelers, ground-level lifts, vehicle restraints, dock and door guards, dock seals and shelters, and material handling products.

Dock Levelers

Mechanical Dock Leveler

Easy to operate - no heavy lifting. Simply pull the release chain. The deck is driven up by heavy duty lift springs and the lip is smoothly powered out of the locked position. Dock is then "walked" down onto the truck bed. When the truck departs, the lip releases, allowing the unit to be returned to the cross traffic position.








Hydraulic Dock Leveler

The U-Series hydraulic dock leveler comes standard with a single push button control for sequenced deck and lip operation. Operating range is up to 12” (305mm) above and 12” (305mm) below the dock leveler.
The U-Series comes complete with a 1HP, Totally Enclosed Non-Ventilated (TENV) power pack system.








Air Dock Leveler

The Blue Giant U-Series airbag dock leveler (patent pending) combines our advanced, environmentally friendly air lifting system with the durable structural design that’s made us a global leader in the design, manufacture, and distribution of loading dock systems.

The U-Series airbag dock leveler comes standard with a NEMA4X / IP65 rated single push button control for sequenced deck and lip operation. When activated, the air bag inflates, raising the deck. When the button is released, the bag deflates, allowing the deck to lower smoothly onto the trailer bed.




Edge of Dock Leveler

Edge of Dock levelers are ideal when trucks are backing to a dock. With a simple pull of the handle the dock board will lift over the truck height for easy positioning. The unit mounts easily to most docks, and is available in 66", 72", 78" and 84" widths. Our edge of dock leveler is capable of servicing trucks 5" above or below dock levels. It is available in both 20,000 and 30,000 lb models.

When dock space is limited or the working range of a full-size, pit-style dock leveler is not needed, rely on an economical Edge of Dock leveler.  Edges of dock levelers are available with Hydraulic or Mechanical activation (lift) for smooth and reliable operation.



Vertical Storing Dock Leveler

Your first choice when quoting LEED certified projects. The Blue Giant U-Series vertical storing dock leveler is the perfect loading dock solution for facilities and applications that require strict climate control or high cleanliness levels. It improves internal temperature control, reduces the risk of door damage, and minimizes debris entry. Trailers typically back into the specially designed loading dock bay and before the doors are opened allowing for contamination, a complete seal is formed between trailer and inside the facility.


Studies on application:
  Companies actually lose one ton of refrigerate air per dock door per year, on average, when they use pit levelers instead of vertical dock levelers. The concept of 'drive–thru' applications where the added efficiency, and virtually no loss of refrigeration is appealing.  The trailer backs directly to the loading dock and the trailer doors are opened into the building rather than the traditional opening of the doors prior to fully backing into the position.

Vehicle Restraints:

Mechanical Vehicle Restraints
