Dock levellers

Dock levellers

When loading and unloading, life is made much easier and safer when your loading dock is at the same height as the vehicle that you are loading on to. Dock levellers are designed to do just this, enabling trailers to reverse right onto a loading bay and goods can be carried on wheeled on/off the vehicle efficiently. There are a number of variations of the dock leveller, designed to suit different loading bays and vehicles, for example, swing lip dock levellers, telescopic lip dock levellers and Pit mounted dock levellers.

Loading dock scissor lift platforms

Loading dock scissor lift platforms

For high vehicles, particularly double deck vehicles, a scissor lift platform provides the ideal loading bay solution. Loading dock scissor lift platforms are designed to be extremely strong and hard wearing, with a very high edge-load capacity. This is essential as heavy items will need to rest against the edge of the platform during loading. Scissor lift platforms can be designed for indoor or outdoor use to suit all loading docks.

Dock shelters and seals

Dock shelters and seals

Amber Doors provide a number of dock shelter and seal solutions. During loading or unloading, when a large industrial loading bay door is open, a lot of heat can be lost from a warehouse, therefore having a negative effect on energy efficiency. Loading dock shelters and foam dock seals can close around a vehicle to help keep the heat in and keep the weather out. This is also ideal for ensuring that your products and packages stay dry during loading or unloading.

Dock houses for loading bays

Dock houses for loading bays

Dock houses are standalone structures that can house a loading bay rather than taking up valuable internal warehouse or factory space. By extending internal space and moving a loading dock into a galvanised steel dock house, businesses can stand to improve efficiency and reduce accidents by reducing cross traffic, amongst a range of other benefits.

Dock bumpers

Dock bumpers

There is no guarantee that drivers in a hurry won’t reverse their vehicle or trailer directly into your dock, causing potentially expensive and dangerous damage. By installing dock bumpers, the impact of collisions is considerably reduced and any fixtures and fittings of dock levellers, lifts or bays are not exposed. By choosing dock bumpers in bright, luminous colours such as yellow, loading bays are also more visible to drivers.

Wheel guides

Wheel guides

In a further effort to reduce the risk of damage to your loading bay from careless drivers, you can install loading bay wheel guides. Wheel guides are designed to help drivers to align their vehicle properly when reversing into a loading bay. These guides are manufactured from welded tubular steel and powder coated in a bright yellow colour, making them highly visible even when visibility is poor.
