Our client prides themselves on its 24-hour turnaround on orders and its distribution centres are crucial to achieving this. Our client has been manufacturing for over 100 years and is constantly looking at new ways to improve and speed up the delivery process.
Armo are continuing to work closely with our client to ensure they have the best solution and to reduce costs and improve productivity and profitability. On this occasion we have upgraded existing loading bays, completely replacing the dock Levellers, buffers, retractable dock shelter and installing new Traffic lights. This ensures their loading bays are the safest and most efficient on the marketplace.
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.
