Following a recommendation from one of our long-standing valued customers, we are happy to be working with them on their next project.
The client is a major supplier of chilled food products to leading retailers throughout the United Kingdom and Europe. They specialise in sourcing the highest quality ingredients from responsible producers, monitoring those ingredients through their tightly controlled supply chain, and creating fresh store-ready products in their own manufacturing facilities.
Their products are sustainable, and their origin are fully traceable from socially and environmentally responsible sources.
On this project we have installed an additional 2 loading bays that consist of the following.
Armo Swing Lip Dock Leveller model ARSL gives the client a robust design and construction. The platforms are made from 6/8 mm tear plate steel, supported by a minimum of 8 longitudinal beams to strengthen the deck but still allowing it to twist through its length to cater for vehicles that are out of level with the Loading Bay.
Pouring Trays are manufactured with a suspended frame design with a reversed angle to allow the dock leveller to sit comfortably within the opening of the pouring tray. The trays are fixed down to a solid base and a dry concrete mix is packed around the tray ready for the final concrete pour to complete the pit.
Model ARCS Cushion Seals are also known as dock pads. Cushion seals are made using high density closed cell foam encased in heavy duty PVC and wear plates are added in addition to the front material to increase the durability of the seal.
When the vehicle reverses on to the cushion seal it compresses the foam as far as the dock buffers allow thus creating a seal between the vehicle and the building.
AROD Insulated Sectional Overhead Door, the door tracks are our galvanised steel ‘J’ type, which are designed to give free and easy running for bearing rollers. These tracks are mounted onto a heavy-duty galvanised jamb angle. The perimeter of the doors is fully sealed, as well as the intermediate panel joints, providing most effective weather seal to the door. Electrically operated with a manual over ride.
ARBD Wheel Alignment Guides are manufactured with soft radius bends and are supplied for installing centrally to the loading bay, circa 2000mm from the dock face. The reversing vehicle slots between the guides ensuring that the vehicle docks safely and centrally onto the loading bay.
