How to Choose a Dock Lift for Your Premises

Posted by Blog Admin on Sat, Sep 26, 2020 @ 04:24 PM

 

Serco Hydraulic Dock Lift

Dock lifts are a type of scissors lift with a large platform. They are used primarily to load/unload materials from trucks to a dock or to the ground. 

A dock lift provides a number of benefits. 

They are the best solution for loading and unloading trucks for a ground level application. 

They eliminate the danger and space requirements associated with a ramp and they improve safety by eliminating manual handling of freight from the truck bed height to the ground. 

✓ They can be found in different sizes and lifting capacities to suit a wide range of loading dock applications (and yes, they can be custom made).

There is more secure level unloading from the bed of a truck than any other alternative.

Dock lifts are the only equipment able to reach from ground level to any range of truck size, from low step vans to large refrigerated reefers.

✓ They allow your lifting equipment (forklift, pallet jack, walkie, etc.) to load or unload most trucks you will receive.

✓ A dock lift replaces concrete ramps and truck wells.

Dock Lifts

 


CHOOSING A DOCK LIFT


STEP 1: Choose What Application Works Best for You

Top of Ground Style

vs 

Pit Mounted Recessed Lift

 

Top of Ground Dock Lifts:

They can be launched on any flat concrete slabs.

There is no need for pit work. 

You can move the dock lift in the future without difficulties. 

Their capacities range from 4,000 lbs. up to 15,000 lbs. and the size of the platform from 6” to 6’ up to 8’ X 12’. 

The price of a ground dock lift is usually higher than the cost of the recessed units. Although if you sum the cost of the pit construction, the price of the top of ground dock lifts can be quite competitive.


Benefits of The Pit Mounted Recessed Dock Lifts:

These units are usually less expensive than the Top of Ground units.

✓ The main benefit is that these units are mounted flush with surrounding surfaces, so they will not become an obstacle to drive over traffic (this is important to keep in mind mainly if the dock lift will be installed in a doorway). 

✓ Recessed units offer level loading at ground level and at truck height. When mounted within the face of docks, they can provide easy dock to ground access (top of ground units can do the same if the units are mounted immediately adjacent to the dock and the approach ramps are shortened.


STEP 2: Platform Size

The platform size is determined by the type of transport equipment that will be used to load and/or unload trucks. 99% of all applications are mentioned below:

- The minimum suggested platform width is 6’. 
- Guardrails use 4’ - 8’ of usable platform width on some models. Keep in mind there should be at least 4’ of clearance on each side of the widest load as well as a 48’ wide pallet for ease of maneuvering.  
- When the loads are wider and/or some users like to unload two pallets side by side, the 7’ and 8’ wide platforms are the best options.
- When  the loads are four wheeled carts or baskets, or the load is limited to two-wheeled hand carts, then a 6’ platform length is more than enough. 
- An 8’ platform length is considered as minimum for the manual pallet jacks. 
- Power pallet jacks works better with 10’ lengths  to fit the load in a comfortable way
- Straddle stackers work well on 10’ platforms. 
- Fork trucks are usually much longer, so they normally require platforms in the 10’ to 12’ range.
- Unusual loads may require custom designed units with platform widths of 10’ - 12’ and platform lengths of up to 65’.

STEP 3: Capacities

✓ Lifting Capacity:  
When the size of the platform has been determined, you just need to add the maximum weight of the goods being loaded/unleaded + the weight of the transport equipment + the operator’s weight to arrive at a lifting capacity.

✓ Axle Rating Capacity: 
Axle loads on manually propelled carts and pallet jacks are too light to be of concern. 
Manual pallet jacks divide payload weight between two axles
Powered pallet jacks and straddle stackers usually concentrate 60% of the combined payload and equipment weight on their rear axle. Powered pallet jacks can move heavier loads than manual equipment. Fork trucks usually concentrate 80% of the maximum payload plus fork truck weight on the front axle, very few trucks may run up to  90% concentrations. 
It is wise to compare the axle loads produced by your equipment vs. the rating of the dock lifts to be safe. 

✓ Roll over capacity: 
This capacity only applies for recessed units, and it refers to the maximum axle load allowed for vehicles driving over a fully lowered lift. The majority of recessed dock lifts are rated for 10,000# axle load slow speed drive over. It is important to keep in mind that large specialty vehicles and high capacity fork trucks with small hard wheels can exceed these limits. In those cases, it is important to warn the lift manufacturer and they can modify the lifts to accommodate larger loads with thicker deck plates and other forms of reinforcement.

STEP 4: Power Units and Controls  
The operator who rides the lift must be the one controlling the up down controls, if operated in a different way, could cause an accident. NEMA 4 push-buttons, usually mounted on cords, are the standard controls for most companies. 

These are some of the items that can be adapted/replaced from the power units and controls:

✓ Cords length can be adapted (these could be longer for security options). 

✓ The hand held controls can be replaced with key lock push-buttons that are mounted on the platforms. 

✓ Limit switches may be added to cause the lift to stop at fixed dock heights.

✓ Power units on top of ground units are usually mounted on the lifts and covered with weather protection. 

✓ Recessed lifts typically have remote power units that are mounted inside buildings, but weather covers can be ordered for outdoor mounting. 

✓ Oil immersion heaters are important options for power units that will be exposed to cold winter outdoor temperatures.


STEP 5: The Size of the Bridges 

The size of the bridge is dictated by the gap from the lift to the back of the truck bed. Ideally, there should be a 4” to 6” extension onto the truck bed. 

When lifts are located inside of buildings with a wall between the lift and the truck, the bridge (longer than usual) can rest against a wear strip on the wall and will then automatically reach into the truck as the lift is elevated and retract as the lift is lowered (in these cases, extra weight is not a concern).

- Bridge weight is dependent on both length and capacity. Manually operated bridge weight is a concern when the bridge is 24” or longer.

There are options to mitigate bridge weight such as splitting the bridges into two sections, aluminum bridges or hydraulically operated bridges with push button controls.


Other things to keep in mind is that there are other additional options such as special paint finishes, special platform surfaces, wheel chocks, hydraulic fluids, gates, among others.

Overhead Door Corporation Turns 99!

Posted by Blog Admin on Mon, Jan 20, 2020 @ 10:30 AM

Overhead Door Corporation Turns 99!

C.G. Johnson - Founder of Overhead Door Company

C.G. Johnson - Founder of Overhead Door Company
Inventor of the overhead garage door & the garage door opener

As an official distributor, today we celebrate the 99th Anniversary of Overhead Door Company™!

Did you know that the overhead garage door was invented by our founder, C.G. Johnson, in the year of 1921?

Henry Ford introduced the very first inexpensive and reliable car in the early 1900’s. It was known as the Model T. From here, other car makes began to make affordable cars, which allowed more people to own cars.

In the past, people would keep their carriages and their horses in their carrier. These carriage houses were gradually replaced with garages as more and more people bought vehicles. At the early stages, garages had side panel doors that worked but not in the most convenient way as those doors needed twice as much space to open.

In 1921, C.G. Johnson invented and patented a sectional overhead door. This was the beginning of Overhead Door Corporation™.

C.G. Johnson driving his car to promote garage doors

Johnson drove to fairs and exhibits with a prototype door attached to his vehicle

To promote this new invention, Johnson drove to fairs and exhibits with a prototype door attached to his vehicle, the Model T. Johnson created a network of distributors with the help of clever marketing techniques, such as consumer coupons and bulletin boards in different communities. Five years later, Johnson gave the industry another useful piece of technology to help those who couldn't lift their doors manually: he invented the first electric garage door opener.

These two inventions laid the foundation for Overhead Door Company™, which has proven to be an industry leader. ​​His brand quickly​ gained a reputation for quality, service and integrity.

As an official distributor of Overhead Door Company™ we like to think that we still offer to our valuable customers high quality, extraordinary service and always maintaining our integrity.

Congratulations to our supplier for 99 years! We hope there are many more to come!

The Importance of Having a Maintenance Plan for Roll-Up Doors

Posted by Blog Admin on Mon, Dec 30, 2019 @ 10:45 AM

THE IMPORTANCE OF HAVING A MAINTENANCE PLAN FOR ROLL-UP DOORS

Sometimes roll-up doors can fail unexpectedly, endangering our workers.

Under normal operation, roll-up doors operate smoothly, so smoothly that most workers may not realize the hazard that a failed door can present.

Are you and your workers aware that your commercial garage door or your industrial door can easily weight more than half of a ton? Take a moment to analyze the potential danger if one of your roll-up doors fail, allowing it to free-fall and hit one of your workers.

Consequence of not giving a proper maintenance to your commercial doors

Most commercial doors and industrial doors do not have an auto-reverse feature, such as the Commercial Operator Bottom Sensors. These sensors stops and reverses the door upon contact with an obstruction, such as a person or an object.

Here are some simple examples of what could go wrong if your door doesn’t receive the maintenance that is required:

  • The drive sprocket could disengage from the shaft, allowing the door to free-fall closed.
  • As the door ascends from the top of the frame, the drive chain could jump the sprocket, allowing the door to free-fall closed.
  • As the door is open, the chain can break, allowing the door to free-fall closed. At the same time the chain can also fall on the floor presenting a 2nd hazard.
  • Without the proper maintenance, sometimes the motor of your door can keep working even after the door has been fully open or fully closed.

It is important to schedule regular inspections and maintenance, as well as adequate funding to support your preventive maintenance plans, and workers' continual situational awareness.

Investigations made by the Office of Environment, Health, Safety and Security (E.H.S.S.). revealed that most issues with the roll-up garage doors were caused because preventive maintenance had not been performed on the schedule recommended by the manufacturer due to lack of funding. Some other times it is simply as a result of the age and continuous use.

Because of their weight and design, roll-up doors require frequent evaluation and servicing to avoid malfunction and - by extension - possible injuries to you and the members of your staff.

 

RECOMMENDATIONS

These are some simple recommendations given by the Office of Environment, Health, Safety and Security (E.H.S.S.) for the safe operation of roll-up doors are provided as examples.

1. Regularly scheduled a preventive maintenance (PM).

2. Have adequate funding to support the PM program.

3. Offer training to workers, so they are aware of the roll-up doors hazards.

  • Teach them to not stand or walk under a moving door; wait until it has stopped moving.
  • Whenever possible, use a "personnel door" instead of walking under a raised door.
  • Raise doors to the fully open position, which allows the door to travel to its upper limits and allows the spring to counterbalance the door and hold it in position.
  • Keep the door in full view and free of obstructions while operating.
  • Maintain awareness when walking or using equipment under or near a door stopped in the "up" position.

Finally, it is very important to allow only trained door technicians to install, adjust or perform maintenance to your roll-up doors.


Only trained technicians should install, adjust or give maintenance to your doors

HOW OFTEN SHOULD PREVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE BE SCHEDULED?

The frequency will vary according to the climate and other conditions under which the door regularly operates. Some preventative maintenance may be required monthly, while other types of maintenance should be undertaken every three to six months. To determine the best preventative maintenance schedule for your overhead doors or loading dock equipment contact The Overhead Door Company of The Meadowlands & NYC for a consultation.

Benefits of Installing a High-Speed Door

Posted by Blog Admin on Fri, Jan 31, 2014 @ 01:01 PM

Benefits of Installing a High-Speed Door

Your service doors are some of the most used and most underappreciated pieces of equipment in your facility. Every business has different needs and expectations when it comes to service doors, parking garage doors or other types of overhead doors. Some businesses need a door that fits in with a particular architectural style, some companies value security and still others require a temperature-resistant overhead door. However, another important need is the need for speed.

A high-speed door is a great investment for many facilities. Faster opening and closing times on high-speed doors can make a facility more secure, reduce heating or cooling loss and prevent airflow, which can damage certain merchandise. In addition, when you are not stuck waiting for a slow door to open and close, you save time that you can use for other more important tasks around your property. 

Two of the available high-speed door types include Rytec Spiral Doors and RapidSlat Advanced Service. The Rytec Spiral Doors line of doors offers the perfect balance between speed and style. On the other hand, the RapidSlat door boasts that it combines the speed of a high performance door with the durability of a traditional rolling steel door. While they have different designs, the end application is the same. Choosing the right service door for your structure is a big decision, but a high-speed door can be the ideal solution in many cases. 

When it comes to all your door needs, you are never alone. If you have any further questions on high-speed doors or other types of service doors and accessories, call The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands & NYC. One of our experts will be happy to discuss your needs and help you choose the right solution for your business.

Great Reasons to Attach a Canopy to Your Loading Dock

Posted by Blog Admin on Fri, Oct 25, 2013 @ 07:52 PM

Great Reasons to Attach a Canopy to Your Loading Dock

Have you ever tried to accept or ship a big order in the rain? Your staff gets wet, your products get wet and the entire situation is downright unpleasant or even unsafe. Luckily, there is a simple solution. Attach a commercial canopy to your loading docks and protect your workers and shipments from the rain. There are other benefits too.

Canopy

In addition to protecting your dock from rain or snow, these canopies also provide shade. You know that certain time of the day when the sun beats down so hard that it’s nearly impossible to work? The glare and heat can both make it hard to work. Luckily, a good dock canopy will make a big difference in this case too. Whether the day is rainy or sunny, a good canopy will make the workday more pleasant for all of your employees--making this an excellent investment in employee satisfaction.

Check out the different sizes and types of canopies that are available at The Overhead Door Company of The Meadowlands & NYC. We can create a fixed canopy in nearly any configuration. Whether you have a standard loading dock, or your dock is more uniquely designed, we can help. Call us and let us give you an estimate as to what it will take to give you shade and protection over your loading dock area. If you already have a canopy and need repairs or replacement, we do that too. We want to help you!

While a canopy is a very important piece of loading dock equipment, there are many other important loading dock accessories too. Look into the benefits of loading dock ramps too--utilizing these tools together can help streamline your entire shipping and receiving process. Call or contact us at The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands and NYC and let us help you find the loading dock accessories you need.

For more information, please give us a call at 973-471-4060 or email us at: info@dockndoor.com

Optional Operator Accessories for Overhead Doors

Posted by Blog Admin on Thu, Jul 11, 2013 @ 07:51 PM

Optional Operator Accessories for Overhead Doors

Commercial doors are an important part of many businesses. These doors give you and your staff an easy way to accept deliveries, ship products and move large pieces of machinery in and out of your business. Yes, these industrial doors are very handy! However, did you realize that you have choices when it comes to your commercial door? The addition of optional operator accessories -that work with your commercial door operator- can make certain tasks easier or improve the safety of your commercial or industrial door.

Overhead Door Accessories

Some of the optional commercial door accessories you may wish to consider for your loading dock or back of the house area are as follow: 
 
 
  • Timer to Close Module – Available for the RMX, RSX and RHX operators, this option provides an automatic door closing feature. It has simple installation instructions and the operator system of your door should automatically recognize the accessory.
  • Auxiliary Output – This gives you the outputs you need to add a horn, flashing light or lamp to the RMX, RSX or RHX operator.
  • Interface Module – This allows you to interface both two-wire sensing edges and the X-Series of operators so you can use them together.
  • Radio Transmitters – You may want to control your overhead door from a distance; if so, these radio transmitters (that come in 1 – 4 button styles) are a great addition to your system.
  • Bottom Sensing Edge - If you have an RMX, RSX or RHX operator and safety is a concern, this is a great solution. The bottom sensing edge stops the door and reopens it when it makes contact with any obstruction.
  • Safety Beams – Another optional for stopping or re-opening a door when something in the way are these safety beams. These safety sensors for the X-Series operators can sense when something is in the way and will stop or reverse the door.
As you can see, there are many optional accessories available for your commercial door. Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands & NYC is the perfect company to call if you are looking for any of these accessories or even a new door system.
