Warehouse doors take a lot of abuse, and malfunctioning or nonoperational doors are a common sight on loading docks. More often than not, doors are damaged by a forklift impact. Loading docks are busy, high traffic areas of the warehouse, and doors often bear the brunt of lift trucks that have to snake through obstacles and pedestrians in a confined space.
Malfunctioning or nonworking dock doors are not just an inconvenience, they can also be a drain on your operational efficiency. When you can’t use a door, it can lead to hold ups and delays of truck traffic while a bay is out of service. At a busy warehouse, every hour a door is out of service results in reduced productivity.
Improperly secured doors can also cause considerable energy loss, particularly in environmentally controlled and cold storage buildings. Each 8×10 dock door is a huge escape hatch for conditioned air, and an entry point for moisture, wind gusts and extreme temperatures from the great outdoors. When a door is damaged or tough to open and close, it has a tendency to stay open when the dock gets active.
Doors that are not properly closed can also allow rodents and various other pests into your building, causing product damage, extermination efforts, and other costly problems. Additionally, compromised doors can pose a considerable security risk, providing uninvited access to your warehouse after hours.
