Industrial Dock Doors
INDUSTRIAL DOCK DOORS
USED FOR HANGAR DOORS IN MULTIPLE TYPES , STRUCTURES ARE VARIABLE ACCORDING TO THE PLACE
1. wings of the sliding hangar doors
2. Telescopic hangar doors
3. Folding Hanger Doors
There is a wide variety of types of doors available for industrial and commercial users. Determining the correct type will depend on several variables. A few common considerations are type of traffic, frequency of usage and the environment in which the door is being used. A properly applied, installed and working door can affect a company’s bottom line by increasing efficiencies, safety and even improving company culture. There are four typical types of dock doors, all with differing perks.
1. High Speed Dock Doors
2. Rolling Dock Doors
3. Sectional Dock Doors
4. Slide Hanger Dock Doors
HIGH SPEED DOCK DOORS
High speed doors have a main benefit of time savings. They are usually made of fabric materials such as vinyl and serve to mainly provide protection and efficiency. You will often not gain much value other than immediate business from having thee doors in a facility. Think of these as the “microwave ovens” of the dock doors. They are fast and efficient, but nothing compared to a stove.
ROLLING DOCK DOORS
Roll up dock doors are generally lightweight and made of panels that roll up or to the side. These doors, often made of aluminum or steel, are generally the most flexible for meeting different height limitations and specifications. They can range in size, color, need less room, and are compact. Unfortunately, they do not usually have efficient R values, or security features.
SECTIONAL DOCK DOORS
Sectional or paneled dock doors are run of the mill in the majority of industrial warehouse type buildings. They vary in number of panels, height, and material and can range widely in efficiency and cost. Sectional doors move within tracks and usually include insulated panels, operational systems, and are efficient for standard loading docks. The overhead height of the door tracks make them ideal for larger industrial spaces.
SLIDE HANGER DOCK DOORS
Used for personnel and material handling traffic where overhead or side space is limited and fast openings and closings are critical. Useful where space restricts the use of swing doors or when installation space is available on only one side of door opening (corridors and loading platforms). Suitable for interior or exterior applications in coolers, freezers and food processing facilities.
