Loading Dock Houses

A Loading Dock House is an external structure that extends the facility floor to the drive approach, giving all the benefits of a traditional concrete pit loading dock without undergoing messy and costly construction or forfeiting space inside the facility.

Choose a Rite-Hite loading dock house as an alternative to traditional loading dock construction with minimal mess, building modifications or disruption to daily operations.

Dock House Benefits:

  • Ease of Installation – Dock house structure consists of three main parts: platform deck, house siding and dock house roof. The dock leveler is placed in the platform deck so there is no need for a concrete poured pit, minimizing pains felt during installation and fast-tracking the entire process.
  • Saves Valuable Interior Space – The dock house frame or leveler platform acts as an extension of the facility, providing the area needed for the entire loading dock system from leveler, to shelter, to vehicle restraint.
  • Environmental Control – Dock house is anchored to the exterior of the building to help protect against environmental elements and temperature differences; helping to improve energy efficiency.
  • Protect Against Contaminants – Dock house is anchored to the exterior of the building to help protect against environmental elements and temperature differences; helping to improve energy efficiency.
  • Easy Access - The dock house open frame helps allow for a more convenient clean-up process during routine maintenance.
  • Portability – Dock houses are easily assembled and unassembled. If the facility demands change, the structure can be relocated as needed.
