Increasing Durability through Loading Bay Accessories

April 2021

How to increase the durability of your loading bays through accessories
Opportunities for gaining an edge over the competition are relatively limited in the retail sector. Discounts from wholesalers can be sought, but competitors are likely to get similar pricing levels; rent and rates are largely fixed; and staff salaries tend towards an industry norm. This means efficiencies have to be gained at an operational level, saving time and money in the distribution operation while ensuring minimum spoilage of goods in transit – loading bay accessories are how you can achieve these marginal gains.

Resistance and strength are qualities that a loading and unloading dock for trucks, trailers and vans must have. For this reason, it is important to have a series of accessories that minimize the damage in the logistics dock to ensure the sturdiness and good performance of the loading point for a longer period.

CENTRING GUIDES FOR VEHICLES

They make easier the correct placement of the vehicle against the dock. Allowing reduction of time and risk of damage to the rest of the equipment.

DOCK BUMPERS

These help to avoid the impact of the truck against the loading dock increasing its lifetime and leave the right distance between the vehicle and the dock leveller.

PROTECTION POSTS

Ideal to limit corners, pipping, doors and protect them from blows due to traffic from the various types of forklifts and pallet trucks inside the loading dock.

Don’t forget your access doors too – selecting the right industrial door can make a significant difference to your loading and unloading operational efficiency.

Whether you need a Sectional Overhead Door, High Speed Door or Fire Door we can help choose the right door to meet your needs.

sara LBS Thermal Insulated Warehouse Shutter Doors

February 2021

Thermal Insulated Warehouse Shutter Doors

Thermal Insulated shutter doors are specially designed to help protect your warehouse or business premises from extreme weather conditions, whether hot or cold, all the year round. These advanced Roller Shutter Doors have a specially designed insulated layer which ensures that chilled air is kept out during the cold winter months and retains the ambient air inside cool during the warmer summer months.

The recent drastic drops in temperature have reminded us all that winter is very much here, meaning we can all start to experience some of the UK’s harshest weather conditions. Icy, freezing temperatures, gale force winds, ice and snowfall all represent threats to your warehouse or business premises over the next part of the year. Soon, temperatures will easily fall below zero overnight and we will be lucky to reach single figure temperatures during the day. After the unexpected, and long lasting, snow storms we experienced last spring who knows what this year may bring.

Similarly to winter, the climate in summer months is becoming increasingly intense. Although the hot weather temperatures are superb for spending time at the beach, the hot conditions can be an issue for your business if you require a cooler, controlled environment.
What affect do Insulated Warehouse Doors have on your business?

Lower Heating Costs: reduced heating bills in the winter and reduced energy costs regarding air conditioning in the summer months.

Thermal Insulated Roller Shutter Doors: can also be adjusted to a variety of insulation levels.

Sound Insulation as Default: In addition to helping control heat and cold, thermal insulated doors are ideal for providing excellent sound insulation.

sara LBS insulated roller shutter doors are built around a galvanised steel curtain with hollow section lathes filled with polyurethane infill, providing a high level of insulation that helps facilities to meet energy code requirements and enables operators to reduce energy costs.

The doors are tough as well, with the galvanised steel curtains – combined with injection moulded Nylon-6 end fittings and galvanised steel guides, coil covers and bottom rail – providing protection from vehicle collisions, break-ins and vermin that could nibble a hole through weaker materials. Plastisol and powder-coated finishes are available.

The doors can be supplied with manual push up, hand chain or electric motor operation and are suitable for use in industrial environments or as loading doors for warehouse loading operations.

The popularity of insulated roller shutter doors is rising quickly, as increasing numbers of building project managers and owners of existing facilities come to appreciate the benefits of their combination of speed, reliability, low maintenance and good insulation performance. sara LBS has been, and will continue to be, a leader in developing energy efficient solutions for use in loading bays and other similar large openings.
