AIR CURTAINS, MISSISSAUGA
Typically used to keep warm or cold air in or out of buildings. In this case, product smells were permeating between a shared warehouse with no solid wall separation. Air Curtains prevented smells from accumulating on differing products. Steel tubing was also necessary to reinforce the structure and handle the weight of the unit.
FLEXFIT IMPACT DOOR, TORONTO
Is your current door solution improving your work processes and overall environment? For this client, it was time to upgrade from PVC Strip Curtains to a FlexFit Impact Door. Click to see how they work!
This electric operator had been mounted low on the wall previously. This caused our client to have safety concerns if it was to be impacted or tampered with. Our solution was to install motor covers. The cover also opens to provide easy access for maintenance.
Originally, a vehicle restraint along with a rubber wheel chock was not holding the trailer tight enough against the wall. There had been a few instances where the trailer had shifted ahead, causing the dock lip to fall off the trailer. The lift struck would then get stuck between the trailer and the dock leveler. Therefore, this Wheel Chock System was a more durable, reliable solution. Includes a large steel mounted chock, sensors and signal lights. Click to learn more about Wheel Chock Safety Systems.
It was time for a hook block to be replaced at a mining facility in Toronto. Custom machined sheaves, bearings and a new hook assembly were installed. Heavy materials can now be confidently transported within the facility.
Various truck types entered this loading dock area with constant exposure to inclement weather. This caused water infiltration as there was a slight decline approach to the dock. There was also little clearance space due to the existing overhead canopy as there was little headroom. Our solution was to install custom inflatable shelters with a side-mounted blower (due to limited headroom).
We can't stress enough that Overhead Doors are not intended for personnel use. This customer required a stop device to prevent the doors from potentially closing on someone. As this door was too old for add-on brakes, custom-built extended handles were welded to the door frame with a bar that protrudes into the opening, preventing the door from coming down when fully opened. Limit switches were also added to the handles and when engaged, power to the operator is cut-off.
"Just a note to thank the guys for doing an amazing job on reinstalling our overhead door.
They were complete professionals and did a perfect job in a short period of time. " Domenic
