Rite-Hite's Z-Deck truck leveler provides full-width access to any load
Changes in the trailer industry, such as longer, wider and low-bed trailers, directly affects productivity at the loading dock if loads are not efficiently and smoothly moved. To provide full-width access to virtually any load, Rite-Hite introduces the Z-Deck truck leveler that raises the trailer to the appropriate dock height for loading/unloading. The Z-Deck truck leveler allows trailers to be serviced at or above dock height with a Z-shaped deck design that helps minimize the slope of the lifting surfaced, improves safety by keeping tires even and reduces the opportunity for trailers to move away from the dock. The Z-Deck is surface-mounted with easy installation and does not require a costly, below-grade pit. Its low-profile, 1 5/8-inch collapsed height allows a variety of trailers to be serviced at the dock, and dual-wheel guides provide consistent trailer alignment at the dock. In addition to the Z-Deck, Rite-Hite also introduces collapsible wheel risers and other wheel riser product solutions to raise the trailer to the dock level for smooth loading/unloading.
