    The Quality Loading Bay Equipment Providers 

    Whether you’re running a commercial or an industrial site, loading bay equipment like dock levellers and shelters are essential. A dock leveller, as the name suggests, brings the goods or equipment being loaded/ unloaded in line with the dock. Items can be quickly and easily rolled on and off the platform, which can then be lowed to bring it in line with the rear entrance of a heavy goods vehicle. 

    Dock shelters are designed to provide added protection from adverse weather conditions, such as rain, wind, and snow. This is essential when loading and unloading goods and equipment that could be damaged by bad weather. Shelters also shield employees so they aren’t exposed to the elements while working. Shelters also boost energy efficiency as a seal can be established between the door and the vehicle’s rear hatch. 

    At Rowland Door Services, we have much experience manufacturing and installing loading bay equipment. Whatever your requirements might be, we’d be happy to work closely with you to find the right solution. 

    Our Loading Bay Equipment at RDS 

    Our range of loading bay equipment covers all the bases, so whatever option we find is best suited to your setup, rest assured we can provide it. 

    Take our ‘Swing Lip’ option as an example. These supremely well-built dock levellers rise to their highest point before coming to rest gently on the rest of the vehicle bed. The dock leveller auto-adjusts itself with the vehicle to allow for safe loading and unloading. Weight limits are available of up to 6,000kg or 10,000kg, and these options can be supplied in a variety of RAL colours. 

    Our telescopic option is ideally suited for situations that require longer reaches. Varied lip lengths are available, including: 

    • 500mm 
    • 750mm 
    • 1000mm 

    Similarly, weight limits of up to 6,000kg and 10,000kg also exist, as does the colour availability. 

    Lastly, we have our manual option that comes with manual dock loading plates. This option is not electrical, so these levellers will operate even in a power failure. It’s the perfect energy-efficient, budget-friendly alternative to the options mentioned above. Installation times are greatly reduced as our maintenance requirements. 

    For dock shelters, we offer two options – retractable and inflatable. The two are fairly self-explanatory in how they operate. Inflatable shelters are generally preferred, however, when dealing with cold stores. Once inflated, they create a tight seal around the vehicle, allowing for the temperature inside to be closely regulated. Foam dock pads are also available as added protection for the lorry. 

    With a dock shelter in place, you’ll appreciate the immediate benefits, such as: 

    • Safe Working Conditions 
    • Increased Productivity 
    • Weather Protection 
    • Complete Protection for Temperature-Sensitive Goods and Equipment
