Dock House for Loading Bays
Loading Bay Services
Loading and unloading operations are an important part of many business operations and it is vital these tasks are completed efficiently. One way in which warehouses, manufacturing plants and distribution centres can become more efficient is by using dock houses.
Our dock houses are stand-alone structures that can be installed on the external face of a building to facilitate a more efficient loading and unloading procedure. Once the dock house has been fitted with a dock seal, dock leveller and sectional insulated overhead door, the structure can fulfil the demands of the loading bay.
Main features of our dock houses:
The main structure of our dock houses is manufactured from galvanised steel. The false dock then needs to be welded into position along the back edge to a steel profile within the existing concrete retaining wall.
The dock is manufactured from mild steel checker plate (Durbar) and the structure is clad in HPS 200 Plastisol Sheeting.
Size of the pod: 3650mm width x 4000mm high + Dock Height (800/1300mm adjustable height).
What are the advantages of our dock houses?
- Save space – dock houses do not take up valuable internal warehouse/factory space and keep loading and unloading functions to a confined area
- Reduce accidents – cross traffic will not interfere with the loading dock which delivers distinct health and safety benefits
- Easy to install – there is no major civil engineering work required when installing a dock house and the installation should not disrupt any work taking place inside the warehouse or factory. Dock houses can also be repositioned on site if required.
- Save energy – our dock houses are lightweight but exceptionally strong. They are insulated and weatherproof which makes them ideal for ambient and temperature controlled buildings such as cold stores and also means they deliver energy saving potential.
