In order to prevent accidental impacts with the door, we installed new high-speed rubber doors in their loading dock. These doors are much faster and smoother than the previous rolling steel doors because of their springless direct drive operators. Furthermore, these operators are built to last as they have 1,000,000 cycle or 5-year warranty.
Lastly, even if the door is accidentally hit, the heavy-duty design can withstand the impact and it can easily be reset in minutes. Therefore it reduces this loading bay’s downtime.
In addition to installing the door, we designed, manufactured and installed custom height clearance bars. These bars are bolted with 6-inch wedge anchors at 12 anchor points per clearance bar so trucks will hit the bar and not the door housing. Rather than having the previous plastic height clearance bars that did not stop any impact from trucks.
