We are pleased to be working on another facility of our highly successful worldwide manufacturing client. They are part of a Japanese based global organisation engaging over nineteen thousand people worldwide in the design and manufacture of automotive parts. There global presence not only helps answer customer needs and facilitates stable product supply but gives them a unique strength in capitalising on new opportunities worldwide.
Following a site survey, by one of our highly experienced Project Managers, we have manufactured and installed the following to create 2 new loading bays and upgrade their personnel fire exit doors:
Armo Swing Lip Dock Levellers Model ARSL
Armo dock levellers are robust in 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. The ARSL is in full compliance with BS EN 1398.
Loading Dock Buffers model ARDB
Loading Dock Buffers are made from heavy duty solid rubber, fixed to a prime and painted solid steel backing plate using M24 fixings and the plate in turn is welded in position to provide a long-lasting solid fixing.
ARSR Retractable Dock Shelters
Heavy duty retractable dock shelters are suitable for accommodating vehicles of varying heights whilst at the same time providing an effective seal. The curtains are designed to flex but maintain contact with the rear of the vehicle to maintain the seal.
ARTR LED Traffic Lights are for the loading bay. The traffic lights were red over green LED lights, provided in fully sealed black moulded units, complete with small sun visors. These are interlocked to the loading bay, so the light shows green when the door is closed and red whenever the door is open.
They are installed on the inside of the loading bay door which provides light into every corner of a docked trailer which improves visibility and helps prevent accidents occurring. The light is a 70W system, which was interlocked with the door so that when the door opens, the light will turn on and when the door closes, the light switches off.
The wheel 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 centrally and safely onto the loading bay.
Armo Wheel Alignment Guides model ARBD include base plates complete with 16mm diameter holes for anchoring down to a suitable concrete base.
The Sectional Overhead 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. The door panels construction is manufactured using 0.5mm thick hot dipped coated steel on either face, these sheets are bonded together using CFC free foam with a destiny of 40kg/m2 K.
They are steel security personnel emergency doors, which include external locking devise and internal panic furniture. They are robust in design and frame infilled in resin impregnated honeycomb and powder coated in the colour of your choice. On this occasion the client chose moose Grey.
