Loading Technology is a vital part of any business’ day to day operation, but with an insufficient loading station, you’ll have to spend so much time and effort adjusting for each trailer that by the end of the day you find yourself behind on your workload. Having a streamlined and specifically tailored set of loading technology helps you take the hassle out of loading, giving you all the tools and structure that you need to be able to load and unload with ease. With everything from dock levellers, shelters, and loading houses available to make the job easier, there’s always a way to simplify the loading process so that you can create a more efficient set of procedures that increase productivity.
Hörmann dock levellers provide the perfect solution for accurately compensating any difference in height between various lorry floors and ramps. With dock levellers, the load can be moved in or out of the lorry in a single horizontal movement, which is more stable and therefore safer. A sturdy steel construction with anti-twist platform easily compensates for lorry tilting, even if the load is not distributed evenly.
Dock Shelters and Seals
Protection is incredibly important in the transportation of goods, as you’ll always want to avoid any damage whilst also ensuring that you operate as safely as possible. Dock shelters from Hörmann can be tailored to suit any lorry size and are a fantastic way to offer this enhanced protection to your loads and workers in any conditions.
Using loading houses allows you to utilise as much space as possible inside of your buildings, with the structures sitting externally so that no interior space is wasted. Hörmann loading houses offer simple installation that helps to streamline the entire loading process, with enhanced focus on the safety and protection of your goods and workers. These loading houses eliminate the need for interior rams and tailboard slots too by providing the same service without the need for the extra features.
Good reasons to try Hörmann loading technology
Robust dock levellers
Sustainability and quality go hand in hand. Dock levellers have to withstand the rough day-to-day loading environment. For this reason, all components are manufactured using high-quality materials. The design of all dock levellers corresponds to EN 1398 and, with regard to loading capacity, is dimensioned generously.Particularly sturdy flat anchors, ventilation slots in the edge bracket and adjustment angles to screw ensure reliable fixing in the building structure, one of the most important prerequisites for a long service life.
Energy-efficient loading houses
The dock leveller is fit directly in front of the building with a loading house, allowing the building opening to be sealed efficiently with an industrial door. As early as the quotation phase, we are able to provide model statistics defining the maximum wind and snow loads for Hörmann loading houses.Any unevenness in the door can easily be compensated for using adjustable feet.
Flexible dock seals and shelters
Dock seals and shelters are particularly efficient when they are optimally adapted to the docking vehicles and the loading situation. This requires a wide range of flexible solutions.Robust push-in flap dock shelters with different frame constructions prevent them from being damaged during docking.Inflatable dock seals adjust to different vehicle dimensions.Roll-up flaps compensate for even larger differences in vehicle heights. Dock seals and shelters with telescopic link arms or rising roof constructions are recommended to compensate for vehicle movements or when placing interchangeable containers.
Compatible control systems
From development to production, all Hörmann door and dock leveller controls come from the same source, making them optimally matched to each other. As a result, you benefit from a uniform operating concept with standardised housing sizes and the same cable sets for dock levellers and door controls.Another advantage: If the dock leveller control is placed beneath the door control, both controls can be combined into a single compact uni
