This time of year brings cold temperatures and increases the temperature variance between the indoors and the outdoors. This can lead to increased condensation or frost on a dock leveler’s surface. This condensation or frost can compromise traction for fork lifts and dock employees, which leads to potential safety concerns. This is also true of the inverse situation in summer, when the outdoor temperature far exceeds the interior temperature, especially in cold storage facilities. Foam insulation can help provide a barrier between the interior and exterior which reduces the potential condensation. It is also used as an energy saving option, limiting the transfer of conditioned air temperature between inside the facility and outside. Consult a Pentalift Sales Representative for more information.
