Solutions for an Energy-Saving Loading Dock

When protecting and monitoring the thermal envelope is critical – including any cooler or freezer facility – specialized dock equipment is key. Maintaining environmental control requires implementing gap control measures to prevent energy loss around or through the loading dock. This gap control can be achieved through a variety of energy-saving loading dock equipment options

Vertical-Storing Dock Levelers

Vertical-storing dock levelers used in conjunction with a Thermal Guard Package can provide greater security and temperature control.

Trailer Restraints

Powered RIG-style restraints with LED communication lights provide the best solution for safety at Cold Storage loading docks. The HH3000 Recessed Restraint is a particularly effective combination when used with Vertical-Storing Dock Levelers. For specialized applications where lift-gates are more common than ICC bars, powered wheel chocking systems are an equally effective alternative.
