Vertical Levelers at Kelloggs

Dock Renovation – Food Processing

A snack food distributor needed to upgrade their docks to eliminate gaps that permitted “white-light” to enter the facility. In the food industry, if light can creep in, so can unwanted pests. To solve these issues, we redesigned the dock area to incorporate Vertical Hydraulic Levelers (VHLs) which store upright and fully inside the building. This allows the area around the dock to be kept clean and the door to seal tightly against the floor eliminating white-light.

Dock Shelter Replacement – Machining Manufacturer

A Machining Manufacturer in Fraser, MI had a problem with harsh weather conditions and off-centered trailers damaging their dock shelters. Applied Handling surveyed the dock area and proposed a replacement dock shelter that properly fit the application. By correctly sizing and centering the dock shelters, we were able to eliminate the damage caused by incoming trailers because the Rite-Hite Survivor's flexible side frames withstand impact and maintain integrity under most conditions.

Control Assembly Clean Room – Automotive

An automotive facility needed high-speed fabric doors to enclose a control assembly & test room. The doors needed to be rated for a "clean-room" application and would be used to keep the room pressurized so contaminates could not enter the area.

Applied Handling was able to provide a solution with the Rite-Hite FaxTrax door and automotive spec control panels. The doors were used in pairs enclosing each end of a vestibule. This configuration allowed a constant pressure to be maintained within the space providing a contaminate free environment.

Refurbished Equipment

As a Rite-Hite representative, we distribute some of the best quality products in the loading dock business but over time, repetitive use and harsh environments can take their toll. Even if a product is well worn, that doesn’t always mean it should be sent to the scrap yard.
