In today’s competitive global economy, loading docks have become busier and larger than ever before.
With more trailers being loaded and unloaded, dock doors are opened more frequently, allowing cold air and snow penetration, as well as resulting in the loss of expensive heated or cooled air. Without efficient sealing, these gaps between the dock doors and trailers can cost a business thousands of dollars every year. What’s more, the penetration of snow, rain, and other hazardous elements can damage the products and equipment, as well as influence the comfort and productivity of the workforce. Considering the multifaceted nature of the challenge, it has become essential for businesses to come up with a well-balanced winterization strategy for the docking area in order to reduce their operational costs and increase their employees comfort.
