Dock Lighting

Swing Arm Dock Light - Part # 16540

The most generally used docklight....


Red-Green Signal Lights - Part # 16550

When a truck is spotted, or docked outside the building, the people inside need to be able to indicate to the driver when it is safe to move the vehicle. This system shows the truck driver a red light while the loading operation is taking place from inside the building into his truck. The people inside are shown a green light.

At the completion of loading, the lights are switched so that the truck driver sees a green light, and red is shown to the people inside.

We suggest that the electricity to operate the building door and the dock leveller be downstream from the signal lights, so the truck driver's instruction is "RED ... don't move" before loading can commence.

Seal out Draughts

Three big opportunities to lose money through unwanted exchange of air from inside the building to the outside ambient temperatures....

Also..... Dust and Insects are unwanted in your dock

 

Edge Seal for dock levellers

When a loading dock is fitted with a dock leveller, there is normally a 1" gap left all around the pit .... for very good reasons - ensures the leveller will not catch on the edges when it operates, and removes the "guillotine" action. This slot will pass a very large amount of air, particularly when the leveller is raised and working.

 

 

 

To minimize this loss, we offer the edgeseal brush system, which screws to the pit angles along the length of the leveller, and immediately below floor level. The brushes wipe against the toe-guards of the leveller as it works, holding a barrier to the bulk of the air movement.

To suit 8' levellers, Part # 15989

We can also spray 2" foam directly on to the underneath surface of the leveller. This will assist with temperature control, as well as reducing condensation on the deck, and reduce slipping for staff.... consult factory.


Truck Seal Part # 16635

For dock openings around, say 8' [2.4 Metres] wide, this is the simple, effective way to reduce air exchange.

 

Options......


Truck Shelter Part # 16345

For dock openings greater than 8'6" [2.6 Metres] wide, it is not possible to seal behind the truck.... so the Shelter is employed to reduce direct wind ingression to the building. This item consists of a framework which juts out from the building, and a system of flexible flaps to "wipe" along the sides and top of the truck as it docks.

The Shelter features

Options include

 

 


Refurbishment Service

As time passes, wear and tear from juggernaughts will reduce the effectiveness of your seals and shelters..

As the loads are transferred between building and truck, the small vertical movements abrades the surface of the fabric.... split-pins in the door hinges grab and rip.

The UV effect also deteriorates the fabrics - particularly on the western wall.

Either remove them and ship to us direct, or we will quote to replace them for you.

Some exchange seals are available.

External Load-out Tunnels

The Prentice Dockhouse - Part # 14676

Normal architectural arrangement of a cold store is to build the coolroom with an annex along one side or end.

If the design requires full use of the annex for order assembly, and if the external hardstand is large enough, then the actual transfer between truck and building will occur outside the annex.

The components include then....

These elements can take several individual forms, which are determined by the type of road vehicles being serviced, and the level of environmental control required.

 

 

Consult with factory for your optimum arrangement.
