Side-Folding Full Enclosure Security Grilles are great when it is important to be able to easily open and close the gate.

Dock Bumpers and Their Benefits

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on May 29, 2019 7:07:00 PM

No matter if you have a low traffic dock or a bustling hub of activity, there is always the risk of damage when a truck hits the building. Not only can it cause damage to the vehicle, but in the worst cases the building could sustain serious damage as well. One of the best ways to prevent this is with dock bumpers. In fact, dock bumpers can absorb around 80% of the impact force when there is trailer impact.

Since these are such an important line of defense, it is important that you choose the right type for the job.


Types of Dock Bumpers:

- Laminated Dock Bumpers have a mid-range of wear capacity and have flexibility in thickness, length and height.

- Steel Faced Dock Bumpers have the greatest wear capabilities—up to four times the protection of a laminated bumper. You can make your decision based on how busy your dock is, or how likely it is that there would be a collision involving any type of trailer or loading dock equipment.

- Molded Dock Bumpers are the most attractive style, but they are easier to chip or gouge than other types of bumpers.

One problem that can occur in some spaces happens when the trailer height does not match up against the natural height of the bumpers on the loading dock. Here at The Overhead Door Company of the Meadowlands & NYC, we have a solution.

We can create custom raised dock bumpers that will prevent damage to the trucks and the building. If this is something that occurs on your dock, give us a call or contact us and let one of our experts come out and work to find the right solution for you.

Choosing the Best Loading Dock Lights

Loading Dock Lights

 

Know your type:

  • The Double Strut - When looking for a stronger model that can hold in a horizontal position the Double Strut model is your best bet. This design features bronzed sintered barings for all rotating points, 1 1/2 inch 14 gauge square tubing that will easily prevent sagging and easily adjustable pivot friction to help hold any position. The safety-yellow finish on the lamp head and struts offer an extra level of protection as well.

These heads give you a whopping 500w of power and up to 24,000 hours of life with an energy usage of just 50w. You can easily conserve energy and save money all at the same time.

Great Reasons to Attach a Canopy to Your Loading Dock

Posted by Overhead Door Expert on Oct 25, 2013 7:52:00 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
