Warehouse doors take a lot of mistreatment, and impaired or unusable doors are fairly common on most loading docks. In most cases, doors are impacted by lift trucks. The dock is a hectic, congested area, and doors are frequent casualties of lift trucks that have to weave through obstacles and pedestrians in a constrained area.
Malfunctioning or damaged doors on your loading dock are not just a hassle, they can also be quite expensive to your material handling operation. When you’re unable to make use of a door, it can result in back-ups and lengthy detention times while a bay is out of service. At a busy distribution center, every minute a door is out of service results in lost performance. Getting dock positions back in service immediately is crucial.
Incorrectly sealed doors can also lead to significant energy loss, particularly in climate controlled and cold storage buildings. Each 8×10 dock door is a giant escape hatch for conditioned air, and a way in for precipitation, wind gusts and harsh conditions from the outside. When a door is broken or difficult to open or close, it has a tendency to remain open when the dock becomes active.
Unsealed doors can likewise admit mice and other pests into your facility, causing product damage and remediation efforts. Moreover, damaged doors can present a considerable security danger, providing intruders access to your warehouse after business hours.
