Loading Bays

Loading Bays consist of Dock Levellers, Dock Seals, Insulated Sectional Doors and Vehicle Restraints

Dock Levellers

Dock Levellers

Dock Leveller:
Ellickson Doors dock levellers are engineered to assist in the loading / offloading of all different size trailers on the Irish roads. The Ellickson Doors dock leveller is designed to compensate the differences in heights between various trailers and warehouse heights. The Ellickson Doors dock levellers are constructed with hydraulics consisting of 2 lifting cylinders and a cylinder for the top lip which sits in the trailer bed when activated. There is automatic emergency stop valves in the lifting cylinders. The dock levellers are easy and safe to use and is integrated with the loading bay door to ensure correct use. There is a wide range of dock sizes available and are tailor made to suit all environments including ATEX rated zones. 

Dock Seals

Dock Shelters and Dock Seals:
Ellickson Doors dock shelters and seals fit all trailer sizes and therefore can be used on any loading bay. The shelter and seals are designed to give the building a maximum seal once the dock doors are open. They also protect the goods being loaded / unloaded from harsh weather conditions. Dock seals provide the same protection and can be supplied with adjustable head seals to compensate for different trailer heights.

Insulated Sectional Doors

Insulated sectional overhead doors:

Ellickson Doors insulated sectional overhead door opens vertically allowing more free space in front, behind and above the opening. The door panels follow the roof line of the ceiling. Our door panels are 40mm made up of either aluminium or steel and have a polyurethane foam infill. When the door is in the closed position it forms a perfect seal with the opening through its top and bottom seal on the panels and along the side with seals positioned on the side tracks. Vision panels can be added to the door panels. There are fully glazed doors available with an aluminium profile. Insulated sectional doors s are available in a wide range of colours and are either electrically or manually operated.


Vehicle Restraints


Wheel Locks:
Ellickson Doors wheel lock vehicle restraints provide the highest level of safety for the application of loading / offloading while the trailer is in the docked position. Our automatic wheel lock system services a variety of trailer types. Once the trailer is engaged with the wheel lock it cannot pull away from the loading bay until the cycle has being completed in its correct form.
