As different businesses have different loading requirements, we offer a comprehensive range of systems. This includes hydraulic and mechanical dock levellers. These are designed to accommodate double-deck trailers which are one of the most effective ways to both rationalise distribution costs and lower carbon emissions. In fact, they are such an efficient means of transporting goods, that they can reduce running costs by up to 40%, and save up to £90k a year compared to single deckers.
In order to protect your goods in all weathers, we can supply and fit a range of dock seals and shelters. These highly engineered products can help save on energy costs by preventing draughts and minimising heat loss. With a choice of inflatable covers, foam pads, dock shelters and combined systems, we have an option that is right for you.
Together with this, we can fit a wide range of industrial doors to suit every environment, including everything from impact resistant sectional doors and roller shutters, through to fast acting doors and automatic entrance systems.
As well as individual industrial doors, we can provide stand-alone docking systems in the form of loading houses. These systems, combined with loading ramps, can be attached to existing buildings, in order to extend storage space while at the same time offering thermal insulation. Providing a host of benefits over conventional internal ramps, loading houses include dock levellers, dock shelters and sectional doors, with the framework of the unit hot-dipped in galvanised steel as standard. There is even the option to add water drainage and façade elements so that it matches your existing building.
Such is our expertise in loading systems, that it even extends to scissors lifts. With both single and multi-scissor lift tables available, we can provide the right one to meet your load capacity, height requirement and platform size, while at the same time meeting all relevant safety regulations. So, whether you require your scissor lift to be pit installed or floor mounted, either inside or outdoors, we can supply one to meet your needs no matter if it is being used in your warehouse, loading bay, production line or packing area.
When dealing with any warehousing system, safety is paramount at all times. This is why we can recommend and install a vehicle restraint system from our wide range designed to prevent accidents and incidents during loading and unloading. These systems protect against a number of problems including drive-away or premature vehicle departure, vehicle walk, vehicle creep, trailer-tip and roll away.
In order to ensure that your loading docks are compliant with current health and safety legislation, we can also expertly fit a comprehensive choice of loading bay accessories. These have the added advantage of improving the efficiency of your loading/unloading whilst being compatible with most loading docks.
As you can see, when it comes to loading systems, Pickering Lifts can certainly take a load off your mind by providing you with the right equipment, to not only improve the efficiency of your operation, but to help maintain the highest level of health and safety at all times.
