Dock Doors | Salt Lake City


Warehouse dock doors are subject to quite a lot more daily use than standard overhead doors. In a high throughput dock environment, some overhead doors may open and close more than a dozen times a day, leading to extreme wear on tracks, rollers, cables, panels, springs and other overhead door components. As a result of this unrelenting use, dock doors require regular maintenance.

Pallet trucks, forklifts and other equipment are usually present on a loading dock, and doors are occasionally damaged by mismanaged equipment. Even a superficial forklift impact can bump an overhead door out of its tracks or even cause irreparable damage.

A jammed or damaged overhead door will often jeopardize your building security if the door is stuck in an open position or cannot be adequately sealed. An unsecured door may also subject products to weather or rodent damage while needlessly wasting energy.

It’s best to leave door repair to qualified technicians, because damaged doors can be a significant safety hazard. Weighty doors and rollers can easily shatter or sever 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.
