sara Loading Bay - Choosing the Right Door for a Warehouse

October 2020

The best type of industrial door for a warehouse depends on a number of different factors, including what’s being stored inside, and how people will be gaining access during a typical working day. Let’s take some time and run through some of these factors and help guide you through the process of selecting the perfect door solution for your warehouse.

OPERATIONAL NEEDS

As we know, warehouses typically host a wide range of items and each item can need a different door environment. For example, in sensitive environments, like food storage, an insulated door that takes longer to open and close multiple times a day could offer worse protection than an uninsulated high-speed door that ensures open and closing times are as short as possible.

Let’s look at the maths – if you need a door to open and close 100 times in a typical working day, and the door takes two minutes to open or close, a warehouse will be exposed to the outside temperature for 400 extra minutes, on top of the time needed for a vehicle to enter or leave – that’s a lot of time to be exposed to the elements. High speed doors, on the other hand, have opening speeds as fast as one metre per second, so you dramatically reduce this exposure time.

Of course, it’s also possible for high speed doors to be insulated, providing the best of both worlds – something to keep in mind if multiple doors are needed for a site.

LOCATION & WEATHER

For obvious reasons, warehouses can also be noisy environments, and insulated doors can serve another useful purpose in these cases, helping to reduce the amount of noise pollution from a building. This is particularly useful for sites surrounded by residential areas, for example.

Weather seals and insulation prevent heat loss – and this is useful not just for storing items that need to be kept at a certain temperature. In colder areas of the country, this can also be essential for maintaining a comfortable working temperature for staff, without relying on heaters and the horrendous heating bills they often carry.

WHAT YOU’RE STORING

If you’re storing goods that need to be kept at a certain temperature level – usually liquids, or perishable goods which are at risk of freezing, or natural products that are at risk of spoiling – the right door is absolutely essential.

Industrial warehouse doors are usually very large, providing an equally large opportunity for heat loss, unless they are designed to reduce heat loss. For example, insulated roller shutters feature twin-ribbed curtains and weather seals to keep heat in.

ACCESS

High speed doors are also valuable for warehouses where regular, secure access is needed. Fast-moving businesses with multiple collections and deliveries every day, the time spent waiting for doors to open and close can build up, wasting hours over the course of a working day. High speed doors dramatically reduce the time wasted.

Pedestrian access is also important – high security doors prevent unwanted access and keep you safe knowing that only those with authorised access are able to use the doors.

Save Energy and Cost with Sara Loading Bay Solutions

October 2020

With energy prices continuing to rise, there is every reason to make certain that you save as much energy as possible. Sustainability is the word on everyone’s lips and there are lots of things you can do that contribute to decreasing energy consumption.
Energy savings in the docking bay

With doors and curtains opening and closing throughout the day, there are a lot of savings to be had in the docking bay. However, achieving them isn’t only a matter of choosing the right door and curtain types.

You also need to take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Added solutions, such as sensors, traffic lights and remote monitoring systems, can make a significant difference to energy consumption. By ensuring that your docking bays are used in the most efficient way, they add to the savings that can be managed through door materials and seals.
Ensure proper loading bay maintenance

Be sure to protect the flow of goods by performing regular maintenance on your systems. Proper maintenance is not only one of the most cost-effective ways to keep goods moving, it’s also a smart way of retaining good energy performance. Peace of mind and energy efficiency can both be secured through planned maintenance and modernisation programs.
Use high quality equipment

By this, we refer not only to our loading bay equipment itself, but also to the complete service that we provide, encompassing detailed advice and guidance on the right solutions for your own organisation’s site.
