Case Study: Adding a Loading Dock Without Construction
Currently operating in a grade-level building without loading docks, this customer needed two viable loading dock positions. Looking to avoid downtime and costly permanent construction at a leased space, the customer and their architect tapped an alternative to traditional loading dock construction with a 22’ x 20′ Dockzilla Self-Standing Platform. This freestanding utility loading dock solution platform was large enough to turn and maneuver two loading dock positions and was installed inside the building to maintain security and environment control, and to keep trailers level. Although self-standing, this heavy-duty unit provided a robust loading dock option with key standard and added features, including trailer restraints, shelters and doors, full guarding, and impact barriers. For access, a 30′ long x 8′ wide ramp and dual dock ladders were provided. Receiving their platform within several weeks enabled the customer to begin operations on their schedule without the typical delays caused during construction.
