Armo are once again working with one of the best Midlands contractors, providing complete design, management and build for commercial and residential property development projects.
We are pleased to be working with them on another project for a new development in Stoke on Trent. We have installed 5 new complete loading bays, including ARSR Retractable Dock Shelters, ARSL Swing Lip Dock levellers and LED Traffic Lights. Details below of the products we installed.
They 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.
They are made from good quality materials – in fact the front curtain material started life as abrasion resistant conveyor belting! The retractable frame is made from galvanised steel to make sure it lasts the course when exposed to the elements and just in case the shelter gets accidentally hit the arms are designed to retract out of harm’s way by moving back and up.
This also gives the loading bay access to double deck trailers and keeps expensively generated air in, thus saving on energy, while giving the employees a better-quality environment to work in.
In addition to the Retractable Dock shelters, we also supplied and installed Armo Dock Buffers and Backing Plates and Fixings. Armo buffers are manufactured from heavy duty solid rubber, fixed to a primed and painted solid steel backing plate using M24 fixings, the plate in turn is bolted back to the dock
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.
