    Here at Industrial Door Systems, we understand the intricacies of the loading dock area and know just how busy they can be when running at maximum efficiency. Typically, the hub of many warehouse activities and as such, must be safe and easily accessible at all times, loading docks are vital for the successful running of hundreds of different commercial businesses, and we are proud to have been serving this particular industry for many, many years now for your specific needs with superior service.

    We know that with vehicles, inventory, and personnel constantly moving in and out of the loading dock, the entire area must be made safe at all times. We help to ensure that this is always the case with our range of dock and door solutions with our outstanding service needs, such as:

  • Dock boards: Metal ramps that bridge the gap between dock and truck and are usually made of steel.
  • Edge of dock leveler (EOD): Fixed to the loading dock and ideal for use when trucks are backing up to a loading area; these bridge the gap from the edge of a loading dock to the truck, trailer, or ramp.
  • Hydraulic dock leveler: Operating in a range between 12 inches below and 12 inches above the level of the dock, the leveler is controlled with a button that raises it and extends the lip, causing the platform to float down to the trailer floor.
  • Mechanical dock levelers: The mechanical leveler is activated with a pull chain, similar to a hydraulic dock leveler.
  • Air-powered dock leveler: More economical than a hydraulic leveler, these use an airbag system to raise and lower the deck and are operated by a push-button.
  • Specialty dock levelers: These levelers are designed to cope with non-conventional truck bed heights, including truck levelers and Vertical storing dock levelers.
  • Trailer stabilizers: Intended for vertical loading and avoiding excessive side forces, these stabilizers help facilitate the loading and unloading of trailers and can raise them to a correct storage angle.
  • Wheel chocks: Placed closely against the wheels of a vehicle, this sturdy wedge prevents it from moving around when goods are being loaded unloaded in the loading dock.
  • Industrial fans and commercial HVLS fans: High volume, low-speed industrial ceiling fans circulate air in warehouses and other applications and are both cost and energy-efficient.
  • High-speed doors:We specialize in high speed roll up doors engineered for many industries, from our industrial high speed metal doors,rubber doors to our high-speed vinyl doors. The "high speed" in their title refers to just how quickly each door rolls up and down. This too is an important feature for your company as it relates to maintaining a comfortable temperature, considering that opening a large door often creates a draft inside the building. Our systems are designed for no back draft, promising to keep the temperature inside just where you set it.
  • Trailer fans: Our range of HVLS fans can be adapted to suit many applications.
  • Dock seals: Providing a barrier between the opening of the loading dock door and the surface of the trailer when loading or unloading, dock seals keep weather, bugs, dirt, rodents, and unwanted pedestrian traffic out of your warehouse and help to maintain the climate within.
  • Dock shelters: This flexible enclosure enables trailers to pull under and into the opening of a loading dock, while the surface of the shelter forms a contact barrier around the rear. Looser than loading dock seals, they are more flexible and durable.
  • Dock bumpers: Often referred to as truck dock bumpers or dock pads, they're generally made from rubber, are highly resistant to impact and wear and tear, that prevent damage to loading dock equipment, warehouse walls, vehicles, and trailers.
  • Truck restraints / Vehicle restraints: This equipment is installed at the loading dock and helps prevent transport vehicles from leaving the loading dock while being loaded or unloaded.

    Different types of loading dock

    Most loading docks are used as a location for vehicles to unload or load products, although their uses in specialized environments do vary. Warehouses and factories often use docks for shipping and receiving. They offer a bridge between the building and the transport truck. Loading dock structures are incredibly versatile, as they facilitate many different tasks, from product loading to construction support.

    Learning how to properly evaluate your unique needs will help ensure that you're making the right purchasing decision before investing in loading dock equipment. Different types of loading docks can offer specific benefits to particular environments. Roller Shutter Door Loading Docks are heavy-duty units designed to seal tightly when closed roller doors. This prevents dust, water, rodent, and other elements from entering the warehouse through the dock door opening and energy efficiencies.

    Your dock area should be flexible enough to accommodate any vehicle. The most common dock height is 48" – 52", but some customers may not be able to load or unload materials or products due to truck heights (or different cargo). It would be best to consider how you want to compensate for the trailer heights of tractor-trailers (which can be as high as 13'). In addition, you need to consider the equipment your drivers will use if your drivers are using forklifts or pallet jacks

    Flush dock

    The flush dock is the most common loading dock used in transport or heavy lifting. A flush dock allows for the back of the loading truck to be flush against the entryway of space and maintains a secure buffer between the building and bay to avoid damaging walls. This type of dock is typically used as a space-saving measure as it fits snugly inside the chosen warehouse or facility, making it ideal for smaller businesses. Flush docks are also suitable for manufacturing industries and commercial outputs and delivery locations that require this kind of functionality.

    Open dock

    Used in older warehouses, the open dock is a popular option for businesses who ship durable goods and where time may be more important than the security of their shipment. But they offer certain benefits, such as ease of access for loaders. This can save significant time and money through the load / unload process. You will, however, need security procedures to guard against theft or damage to goods.

    Sawtooth dock

    Uniquely shaped at an angle, a saw tooth dock can easily fit into narrow or difficult spaces; however, it can be bulky to operate within the warehouse, wasting valuable storage space. If you have enough room in your warehouse to accommodate their unusual size, a saw tooth dock will give you much more maneuverability on the outside. Best to use these docks in large-scale manufacturing warehouses with plenty of room on the inside.

    Enclosed dock

    Using an enclosed dock in your delivery shipments can provide many advantages. You provided loaders quick and easy access to their supplies, reducing the amount of time needed for deliveries. Moreover, these docks also help protect crucial goods from environmental damage or other damages caused by open-air infrastructure. You must make sure you have proper ventilation systems implemented to prevent too much pollution. If you have limited space in your warehouse, consider using one of these today!

    Our Loading Dock Solutions are the most versatile on the market.
