From architects, specifiers and contracts to logistics, manufacturing and pharmaceutical companies, there are so many different types of customer that we serve with our design and manufacture of industrial doors here at Easilift Loading Systems.
Not all industrial doors, however, are the same. Many factors will influence the specification decisions that must be made for your organisation’s doors, including the volume of traffic, the type of vehicle traffic, processing equipment and access control.
So, here are some of the things you need to think about when turning to a manufacturer of industry-leading, cost-effective and functional industrial doors like Easilift Loading Systems.
You never need to settle for a standard door
While we are fastidious in our efforts to ensure the very highest standards of design and manufacture, we also realise that your firm’s requirements for industrial doors won’t just depend on whether you are in the food and drink industry, retail, aviation, automotive or a completely different sector.
There is a strong likelihood, after all, that a ‘standard’ door won’t be the most cost-effective design you could choose. When you invest in industrial doors that minimise your firm’s operating costs, you will be feeling the benefits from day to day, from month to month and from year to year.
The dimensions of your doors are all-important
The dimensions that you ultimately specify for your industrial doors will depend in part on the type of door that you require – loading bay doors aren’t quite the same as drive-in/drive-through doors, for example:
If it’s a drive-in/drive-through door or level access door that you request from us, you can expect a clearance width of between 3500mm and 4500mm, and a height of 4200mm to 4500mm. But if it’s a loading bay door that you would like to order, such factors as the platform height, the type of goods to be loaded or unloaded and the size and model of the vehicle will all impact on the clearance dimensions you decide on.
The lorry’s maximum head clearance, plus safety margin, and the bay height will determine the clearance height. The maximum head clearance will probably be between 3800mm and 4200mm, while the maximum internal width is ± 2500mm. But given that a lorry doesn’t tend to park in the middle of an opening, a width of up to 3200mm is likely to be more desirable.
