Warehouse Dock Doors
Selecting warehouse doors for your facility can be complicated, but the right door can improve safety, enhance productivity, save energy, minimize maintenance and repair costs, and provide a good return on your investment.
Here are several things to consider:
Purpose: The most common purpose for a warehouse door is to separate different environments. If your warehouse is involved in food manufacturing, distribution or storage, for example, the door you choose should be high speed, tight sealing and durable. There are ideal doors for every situation, and Royal Forklift can help you find the best solution.
Manual or Powered: Manual doors are typically sectional doors that glide on rails and can be raised and lowered with a handle or rope. They can be very cost-effective and require less maintenance than powered doors, but employees often incur back injuries from excessive bending, lifting and closing. If you expect high traffic, a powered door may be the best choice.
Durability: Your warehouse door should be strong enough to endure severe weather conditions, constant use, and the occasional scuffs and dings that happen when vehicles come and go while carrying large loads.
Safety: Safety is important at every facility, and experts say that about 25% of all reported warehouse injuries occur on the loading dock. The type and flow of traffic at the opening will have an impact. High traffic openings need more visibility than openings with minimal traffic. Assess the potential for accidents in your facility and choose a door that will help prevent them.
