Industry: Industrial Products Warehousing
A North American distributor of industrial products expanded its capacity by building a new 585,000 sq ft central distribution center. During the design process a number of manufacturers of loading dock equipment were considered, Pentalift was awarded the order based upon structural design, safety considerations and ease of user friendly product integration. The order consisted of 45 sets of: Hydraulic dock levelers model HC6830, Vehicle restraints model RVR32 Dock seals model PS200. The common control panels provided on the project interlock the vehicle restraints with the dock levelers at each door. The interlocked sequence of operation creates a safety system ensuring correct procedural practises to improve safety at the loading dock area.
