Let’s take a look at some of the specialty dock equipment we can provide for your premises.
What kind of businesses need dock equipment?
A variety of business premises and facilities, such as warehouses, require dock equipment to safely and efficiently load and unload goods from a loading dock. A range of equipment can be used to ensure the safety of both the workers and the load, as well as maximizing efficiency and productivity.
Here are some examples of dock equipment available from Action Overhead Door…
A dock leveler is a platform that bridges the gap between the loading dock and a vehicle. The height of this platform can be adjusted to make the transition between the two levels as smooth as possible. This helps to prevent accidents and injuries when loading and unloading. At Action Overhead Door, we have mechanical dock levelers, hydraulic dock levelers, and airbag dock levelers.
Dock Shelters and Seals
Some goods loads may need to be kept protected from rain or snow so that they don’t get damaged. This is where dock shelters come in. A dock shelter extends between the vehicle and the loading dock to cover the loading area. This can also be useful in strong winds, which can make it difficult and unsafe to load and unload goods. As well as dock shelters, we also have compression dock seals that can seal the area from the weather.
Dock bumpers are rubber devices at the floor level of a loading dock that protects the dock area from damage in case a truck or trailer crashes into it. This helps to protect the facility in case of accidents.
It’s important to keep the truck or trailer completely stationary during loading and unloading. If the truck were to move or if someone accidentally drove away during this process, the workers could be seriously injured and goods could be damaged. Truck restraints secure the truck or trailer to the dock face to ensure that this cannot happen.
As well as providing these specialty products for your facility, we can also install dock equipment for you where required. Contact Action Overhead Door to find out more about our specialty products and services around Savannah, Georgia.
