Inflatable seals for double decks
12 December 2012
To cater for increased use of doubledeck vehicle trailers, Thorworld Industries has supplied existing customer John Lewis with new Inflatable Dock Pad Seals. For over a decade, loading bays at John Lewis' distribution
For over a decade, loading bays at John Lewis' distribution depot in Liverpool have been fitted with Thorworld's Inflatable Dock Pad Seals, which provide a virtually airtight sealed insulation around docked vehicles between internal and external environments. This ensures effective protection against inclement weather, reducing energy costs as well as providing a healthy working environment for warehouse employees.
Claimed to be extremely effective and easy to install, operate and maintain, Inflatable Dock Pad Seals are fitted around the sides and top of each loading bay. The vehicle simply reverses up to the pad as normal and, once in position, the seals are then inflated - which takes around 30 seconds - to create a tight seal before the doors are opened and loading/unloading can proceed.
