Our client who is one of the UK’s leading providers of international healthcare products in the UK appointed Dock Solutions as their contractor for their loading bay works to create 2 new loading areas at their site in Sheffield.
The bays our client needed to create, both had different requirements; bay 1 is specifically to be used for the loading and unloading of HGVs, where as bay 2 is to be used by vans and smaller vehicles which meant 2 different solutions would be needed.
Following a site survey with one of our experienced project managers it was decided that the following equipment was to be installed:
Bay 1 – scissor lift with bespoke manufactured walkway to ensure safe access, insulated roller shutter door, buffer posts and sockets, a retractable down to the ground dock shelter and wheel guides.
Bay 2 – high speed insulated roller shutter door with 2 different opening heights and inflatable to the ground dock shelter, both of which will cater for the different vehicle sizes using this bay along with buffer posts and sockets and a traffic light system.
Initially before the site survey was carried out our customer was looking for 2 scissor lifts however due to costings and the use of the 2nd bay it was decided that the option noted above would be the best solution to their needs.
A few images below show the progression of the project, from manufacture through to installation.
