DOCK SEAL REPAIR, YORK REGION | CASE STUDY
Constant impact causing damage
At this distribution centre, workers continued to hit the sides of the dock seals with skids, eventually tearing the actual seal.
This was due to the seals being made with an opening of 90" instead of 96". Therefore, a 3/16" vertical pad was installed at the bottom as a skid guard to protect from impact.
Thankfully, we were able to provide a solid fix for this issue without having to replace the entire unit.
