Armo (UK) are the retailer’s choice, when looking to upgrade their loading bays. On this project we have upgraded two loading bays to accept a wider range of vehicle sizes, whiles also giving an effective energy efficient seal.
Armo Specialist Installation team installed the new Armo Inflatable Dock Shelter and a ARRS Insulated Roller Shutter Door. This gave the client a fast-optimum seal for a wide range of vehicles and with the low air movement also catered for ambient temperature required when delivering temperature-controlled food products.
This is a derivation of the standard roller shutter, the insulated roller shutter door is manufactured in a very similar way, but the curtain is formed with two laths with insulation material between them. The roll when the door is open is a larger diameter, but it requires significantly less space behind the door than a sectional overhead door.
Like the standard roller shutter, the insulated roller shutter can be finished in a number of ways, the most popular being powder coated and Plastisol. Both options you can match doors to a co-ordinated colour scheme with cladding or a corporate image
The ARIS inflatable dock shelter is growing in popularity as more comprehensive control of vehicles and equipment becomes available. The frame size is like that of a retractable shelter, but the narrow side curtains conceal deflated polyurethane inflatable cushions; the head is similar.
The use of inflatable seals works very simply; the vehicle arrives at the dock usually with an external traffic light showing green, when the warehouse operative is alerted to the presence of the vehicle. Once the fan is energised the cushions fill with high volume, low pressure air and maintain steady contact on the sides and roof of the vehicle providing a good tight seal, reducing the ingress of the elements and keeping in expensively generated warm or cooled air.
Although inflatable seals are made to standard dimensions Armo also provides a service to make special sizes to fit to existing buildings and special applications.
Armo has many year’s experience in the use of integrated systems for loading bays, the ARIS is commonly initiated by the door control buttons and linked to the operation of external LED traffic lights, to provide safe and efficient control of the loading bay.
