Warehouse doors take a lot of abuse, and impaired or non-functional doors are not a rarity on most loading docks. In a many cases, doors are damaged by forklifts. The dock is a busy, high traffic area, and doors are frequently struck by lift trucks that must snake through pedestrians and obstacles in a confined area.
Malfunctioning or broken doors on your loading dock are not simply a hassle, they can actually be quite costly to your material handling operation. When you’re unable to operate a door, it can cause backups and delays while a bay is out of service. At a busy distribution center, every minute a door is out of service results in reduced productivity. Getting dock bays back in service quickly is vital.
Improperly secured doors can also result in significant energy loss, particularly in environmentally managed and cold storage facilities. Each 8×10 dock door is a huge escape hatch for conditioned air, and a way in for moisture, wind gusts and harsh conditions from the outside. When a door is damaged or challenging to open and close, it tends to stay open when the dock gets busy.
Doors that are not properly closed can likewise admit mice and other pests into your building, leading to product damage and remediation efforts. Furthermore, damaged doors can pose a substantial safety risk, giving trespassers access to your warehouse after hours.
