Serco Thermal Guard Package helps
increase security, energy efficiency
Jan 14, 2013 7:00 AM
The Serco Thermal Guard Package, available on Serco vertical storing dock levelers, provides the ultimate energy and security seal for climate-controlled loading docks.
This additional package allows truck doors to be opened from inside the building after the truck is positioned at the door without breaking a thermal seal at the dock.
The Thermal Guard Package includes an enhanced hinged bottom draft pad, bumper covers, and extended bumper gussets (to work with a 10-foot-wide door) to provide greater sealing capability, as well as an extra dock bumper mounted on the face of the dock to better protect the building.
Design benefits include:
•Helps protect the integrity of the building’s thermal envelope since the cold air inside a refrigerated trailer or building is not lost in the open air or outside the building.
•Provides higher security since trailer seals are broken inside the building instead of in the driveway or before the trailer is secured at the dock, decreasing risk of shrinkage.
•Increases efficiency of logistics since trailers can be staged at dock doors for service at a later date or time, without having to move trailers again in order to open the doors.
Using these Serco products can help maintain a consistent temperature on the loading dock year-round.
Serco provides a catalog of loading dock systems including dock levelers, vehicle restraints, dock seals and shelters, ergonomic lift products, HVLS big fans, and aftermarket dock and warehouse accessories. Serco is a brand owned by 4Front Engineered Solutions.
