Vertical Storing Dock Levelers

Vertical storing dock levelers are hydraulically operated and offer unmatched environmental control for customers with food storage or temperature-sensitive applications. The Poweramp Vertical Storing Dock Levelers allow the overhead door to form a perfect seal to the pit floor by storing in the vertical position. VS Series levelers offer improved cleanliness, overhead door protection, increased security, productivity, and easy maintenance.

Maximize Safety & Efficiency With Poweramp Edge-of-Dock Levelers

Poweramp Poweramp Vertical Storing Dock Levelers

Unmatched Environmental Control

Environmentally Friendly

The Poweramp-VS series leveler stores in the vertical position allowing the door to form a perfect seal to the pit floor. Compared to “pit style” levelers, which can radiate expensive conditioned air to the outside of the building in the stored position, vertical storing levelers can produce savings equivalent to one ton of refrigeration in the stored position alone. A variety of deck, pit, and face-mounted draft seals can deliver even more significant savings, reducing energy loss while the vertical leveler is in use.


Highly regulated industries such as the food industry choose Poweramp-VS series levelers for cleanliness improvements in the dock area. Access for cleaning, overall visibility, and rodent control is a notable improvement over conventional “pit style” levelers.

Improved Productivity and Security

An endless pit and vertical application can permit swing trailer doors to open inside the building once the trailer has backed into the dock, thus improving productivity and enhancing security. Since it is no longer necessary to stop short of the dock to open, close, or secure the trailer’s doors, reduced downtime will produce tangible results.

Maintenance Considerations

Structural, mechanical, and hydraulic components are visible and easily accessible to maintenance personnel for adjustments, operational checks, and daily housekeeping. Increase productivity and efficiency with vertical storing levelers by eliminating time-consuming repositioning of trailers or unnecessary air exchange through an open dock door, a common problem with “pit style” levelers. Since vertical levelers store in front of the overhead door and incorporate side run-off guards, customers virtually eliminate door damage from impact with forklift trucks or staging products in and around dock doors.

The VS Series combines structural steel with a proven hydraulic operation to produce a safe and reliable hydraulic dock leveler. It has a maximum Comparative Industry Rating (CIR) of 50,000 lbs. All Poweramp Levelers are built with durable four-sided box construction. The use of structural steel C channels or I beams creates substantially more deck support than other levelers, as well as farther service range below dock

These levelers come in 6’, 6’6”, & 7’ standard widths and 5’ & 6’ standard lengths. Other lengths may be available upon request. Standard capacities for the VS Series are 40K, 45K, & 50K CIR (Comparative Industry Rating).
