EDGE OF DOCK LEVELER, STONEY CREEK | CASE STUDY

Image
I need to improve my building's efficiency but I don't own it...
Do you operate your business out of a rental unit? So does this client. He required a dock leveler but had concerns of investing into a building he didn't own. What if he re-located? What would happen to this investment?

The solution was to install an Edge of Dock Leveler which could be removed. These units typically have capacities of anywhere between 20,000 and 50,000 lbs.

Do these blocks look familiar? These are known as Dock Bumpers, typically installed against the existing building structure. In this case, Block Risers (grey square unit) help to align the bumpers directly with the leveler.

What types of challenges do you face in a rental unit? Does your work efficiency lack without proper equipment? Comment below!

TRACTOR TRAILER PREDADOOR NXT, ETOBICOKE | CASE STUDY

Image
Any Application, Any Purpose
Thisfood distribution centre had been using a tractor trailer as extra storage space. However, the food needed to be temperature controlled.

The solution was to install a 74"w x 84"h Rytec PredaDoor NXT inside the tractor trailer. A steel door frame had to be constructed along with a pair of track guards on each side of the door. Further specs include an AC drive motor, dynamic breaking and a dual-chamber auto-reversing soft touch edge.

36" bollards were also installed to prevent any impacts to the inside and outside of the door frame. The door itself can withstand impacts, however, safety features are in place to prevent the door from closing on anyone or anything. This includes a dual chamber, auto-reversing soft tough edge, Pathwatch Safety System and 2 sets of photo cells.


All in all, this permanent trailer is now a fully-functioning cold-storage room for produce.
