Dock House Leveler

Dockzilla’s loading Dock House is a modular structure that integrates our self-standing dock leveler and an adjustable steel frame within a dock house enclosure. Unlike conventional pit levelers, this dock house design attaches to the outside of a facility to retrofit any dock door without permanent construction.


A More Modern & Sustainable Approach to Loading Dock Design 

Dockzilla’s loading Dock House “vestibule” encloses the path between building and trailer for substantial thermal benefits and other ROI:

Energy Savings: When the loading dock house is attached on the outside, the dock door closes directly on the building floor and not on a steel dock plate. This drives energy savings of $2,500/yr., per dock position. Read more.

No Construction: Exterior dock levelers and loading dock houses reduce reliance on the difficult-to-find skilled trades for installation and electrical work. These modular units are installed less than a day without concrete or construction, and they feature 24-volt plug-in power, which does not require a licensed electrician.  Read more.

Preserve Floor Space: Unlike pit style dock levelers that require extensive building floor demolition to install 10×10 dock plates, Dockzilla’s self-supported levelers and dock houses preserve 100 sq. ft. of interior floor space per dock position, so there’s more usable area inside for storage and warehouse operations.

Modular Dock House Structure Boosts Savings

  • Installed in a day, without disrupting internal operations
  • Save 100 sq. ft. of floor space per dock
  • Substantial energy savings of $2,500/yr. per dock
  • Minimal reclamation expense when a lease ends
  • Detach & relocate your investment

Preserve Floor Space

Modular loading Dock House structure bolts onto the exterior of a building which preserves internal floor space for warehouse operations. Easily detached and relocated when needed.

Thermal Vestibule

Loading Dock House encloses our self-standing dock leveler to create a “vestibule” that delivers thermal efficiencies when trailers are in position for loading.

Energy Savings

Loading Dock House enables the dock door to close directly the building floor instead of a steel dock plate. The result is annual energy savings of approx. $2,500/yr. per dock position. Watch a video here.

Fast Retrofit

Loading Dock House is installed in a day, so you can avoid internal disruptions, and costly downtime involved when installing pit levelers.

Scissor Lifts – Interior Closed

Built to Order

Loading Dock House can be customized to customer specifications, by integrating scissors lifts, VHL levelers, etc. We can accommodate varying sizes, from a 2 ft projection off the wall to nearly 30 ft.


Skewed Loading Dock Expertise

Our engineers can customize loading Dock House for architects and customers that need assistance with new building dock design or skewed loading docks.



Dockzilla’s loading dock equipment is architecturally designed per OSHA/IBC codes for safety. Loading Dock House levelers are self-supported and equipped with safety features to protect employees.



Loading Dock House loading dock levelers are built from high strength steel at capacities required for customer’s forklift loading needs. They are designed for long term use and feature a 5-year structural warranty.


Fast & Easy

Loading Dock House dock levelers are attached in a day, with no disruption to internal operations, while pit leveler installation requires weeks of downtime due to permitting, substantial demolition, and concrete work.



Loading Dock House is easily detached from the building and relocated, while pit style dock levelers structurally change a facility and may require significant reclamation expenses when a lease ends.

“Installing Dockzilla’s loading Dock House is a no brainer. Having a more modern and sustainable dock leveler option that means we don’t have to dig pits out of our building floors just makes a ton of sense.”

– Andy Vacek, Director of Global Distribution and Logistics, Banner Engineering
