Dock Seal Repair,
At this distribution centre, workers continued to hit the sides of the dock seals with skids, eventually tearing the actual seal. This was due to the seals being made with an opening of 90" instead of 96". Therefore, a 3/16" vertical pad was installed at the bottom as a skid guard to protect from impact.
What do you do when you only have one shipping door? Cut another hole in the wall of course! That's exactly what we had to do for our client to increase their productivity, efficiency and overall functionality. The existing ramp also had to be removed to accommodate two
Cantilever Dock Levelers.
Out with the old, in with the new! We replaced an old worn Sectional Door with a Richards-Wilcox Full-View Polycarbonate Door. This powder-coated blue sectional not only stands out from typical distribution doors but is light-weight (despite it's size). Therefore, less stress is put on the tracks which allows this door to last longer. Want to see it in action? Take a look on our YouTube Channel.
As there are several options for sealing your loading dock areas, it's important to determine what types of trucks typically come to your building. Foam Frame Shelters are designed to seal around 5 tonne and regular transport trucks. In addition, we had to seal the gap between the shelter and the wall due to the ridges of the building. Since this client had no seals prior to, an Enbridge Rebate was issued which helped with the cost of this upgrade. Learn more on the Wilcox blog!
Is your current door solution benefiting your work environment? For this client, it was time to upgrade from PVC Strip Curtains to a FlexFit Impact Door. Watch this video to see how they work: https://youtu.be/xwCwaXChtaE
Air Curtains, Mississauga
Air Curtains are 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 air curtain.
Our client recently took over the unit next door to them but needed interior access. We created an opening in the existing wall and installed a vertical-lift sectional door. Now workers have easy access to both units while still providing ample separation!
This secured facility had a double manual swing gate that needed to be locked whenever trucks came in or out. However, drivers lost time getting in and out of their trucks to lock and unlock the gate several times a day. Our solution was a radio-controlled Automated Sliding Cantilever Gate that closed automatically. A set of thru-beam photo cells were also installed to ensure that the gate doesn't close on people or equipment. From trenching to the final product, see more pictures on our blog!
You may enter! This 14 foot StrongArm Park DC parking gate paired with rolling door controls entry and exit of this retail parking garage.
Have you seen one of these units before? They're ideal for Property Management-type environments and quick to open and close. That being said, remember not to tailgate! These StrongArm Barriers are meant for one vehicle to pass at a time and can cause damage if misused.
This custom gate was built in order for staff to enter the facility directly from the parking lot. A hole was cut into the customer's existing fencing to allow for the entrance. Wire mesh was also re-installed along with a gate frame to complete the project.
Rytec PredaDoor NXT,
Recently this Toronto Pharmaceutical Warehouse had Rytec PredaDoor NXT Doors installed for FDA compliance. This high-speed door is 8'wide by 14' high, with opening speeds of up to 50" per second. The speed of this door is important for maintaining traffic flow, productivity and energy conservation. For safety purposes, a Pathwatch Safety System, dual thru-beam photo eyes and dual-chamber pneumatic reversing edge was also included.
