Our client is an award-winning creator of dynamic and inspiring interiors. We are pleased to be working with them on this project. They look after the complete project from design, manufacturing, to installation. We are please to be working with a company with the same core values as Armo.
Following a site survey by one of our experienced Project Managers. Armo have Manufactured and installed the following a vehicle loading lifts with Industrial sectional doors and retractable dock shelters.
Safety is paramount to Armo and all Lift are fully compliant with BS EN 1570 and incorporate the following safety features.
- Peripheral safe edge with reset feature
- Chainmesh guards under exposed sides
- Designed handrails, barriers and interlocked gates
- Rupture valves in the unlikely event of hose burst
- Easily accessible maintenance prop
- Remote / on-board emergency stop
- Low voltage dead-man controls
In addition, we fitted an ARRS Roller Shutter Door, to one short side of the lift, underneath the on board gates, this provides a degree of ingress protection when the lift is in the raised position.
The ARRS Roller Shutters Doors are made by interlocking steel laths to form a door curtain; the curtain is rolled around a circular drum which is usually driven by a directly coupled electric operator. With a galvanised finish to provides a degree of corrosion protection.
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.
Then we also installed the following on the existing 16 Loading bays, giving a safer loading bay experience.
The Insulated 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 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.
