Installing one of Akon's Dock Leveler Skirts can provide your leveler with protection from the elements. Designed, sewn, and manufactured using only industrial quality stitching, vinyl and steel bar mounting ensures that your equipment will be protected in the harshest environments.
Justifications for Dock Leveler Skirts
- Keeps debris, blowing trash, dust, bugs, and dirt from entering inside of the dock lift and into the building
- Closes the gaps that allows cold air to enter the building in the winter
- Closes the gap that allows hot air to enter the building in the summer
- Improves sanitation inside of the building
- Provides a comfortable working temperature inside the plant, especially near the dock
Entergy Savings That Pays
With the use of our Skirts for Dock Levelers you can dramatically lower your plant heating bill in the winter and your cooling bill in the summer. The reason for this is due to the reduction of air flow that flows into and out of the plant via the spaces between your dock levelers and the outside atmosphere.
Sometimes this cost savings ranges from $250 to $1000 per dock leveler lift. Now multiply that times the number of dock levelers your facility currently has, and you can see this is a very large expense. For instance, a plant that has 15 levelers could expect to pay $7,500 (15 units x $500 = $7,500) in heating and cooling costs! When calculating this cost, it becomes much easier to justify the investment for the dock leveler skirts.
Quality Industrial Skirts
In addition to the energy savings, Akon Skirting and Bellows provides unmatched quality and durability. To ensure that the skirts on the dock leveler last many years, they are constructed from weather grade industrial vinyl which will withstand the sun's harmful UV rays and the winters harsh temperature drops. Some suppliers provide skirting that is not designed for outdoor use, this in turn results in the material quickly degrading which results in open air flow, which is not much better than no skirt at all.
