12 December 2012
The installation of Thortight Inflatable Dock Seals, supplied by Thorworld Industries, has provided ventilation systems manufacturer FlÃ¤kt Woods UK with a means of restricting unwanted loading bay draughts at its Colche
FlÃ¤kt Woods operates out of an open-plan warehouse the size of four football pitches.With no internal walls, any draught entering the building via the loading bays impacts all employees, as well as leading to increased energy costs.
Reported to be extremely effective and easy to install, operate and maintain, Thortight Inflatable Dock Seals are fitted around the sides and top of each loading bay. The vehicle simply reverses up to the dock as normal and, once in position, the Thortight seals are inflated in around 30 seconds to create a tight seal before the doors are opened and loading/ unloading can proceed. Curved sides guarantee that an effective seal is maintained even in high winds.
Thorworld Alignment Curbs ensure that trailers can be quickly and correctly positioned.
