Dock Doors | Denver


Warehouse dock doors are subject to far more daily use than standard overhead doors. On a busy loading dock, many overhead doors may cycle several times an hour, causing excessive wear on rollers, tracks, cables, panels, springs and other door components. As a result of this unrelenting use, warehouse overhead doors should be kept on a ridgid maintenance schedule.

Forklifts and pallet trucks are often in close proximity to dock doors, and doors are occasionally struck by errant vehicles. Even a glancing forklift impact may knock an overhead door out of its tracks or possibly even damage it beyond repair.

A broken or stuck door can threaten your building security if it’s stuck in an open position or cannot be properly locked up. An unsecured door may also leave products subject to weather damage and rodents, as well as waste energy.

Door repair should be left to qualified technicians, because compromised doors can be a real safety issue in your warehouse. Heavy doors and rollers can easily shatter or chop off fingers, and tightly wound torsion coils can cause serious bodily harm or even death. It’s also advisable to clear the area under a broken door of workers and products, as doors that go off their tracks can fall suddenly.
