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.View This Project
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.View This Project
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.
A land development company secured a deal with an Automotive manufacturer to convert a vacant property into a warehouse, cross-dock facility and paved yard for 350 trucks. When complete the building would have 200 truck docks to ship and receive materials 24 hours a day.
Applied Handling was selected to provide the loading dock and door equipment for the project. The timeline was tight, but our 65+ years of experience allowed us to effectively manage the project and meet the General Contractors deadline.
Applied Handling has a customer who wanted to utilize empty building space for new docks but didn’t want the various costs that are associated with digging a truck well. They needed to service full-size over-the-road trailers at one dock and company delivery vehicles at the other docView This Project
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.View This Project
