Why is Specific Food And Beverage Loading Dock Equipment Essential?
Quality standards in the food and beverage industry have always been high. However, the last few decades have drastically increased the regulations that businesses must follow when maintaining the integrity of perishable products.
Loading dock equipment from Southern Dock Products can help your loading dock stay hygienic and keep your foods and beverages safe.
What Are the Top Products Your Loading Dock Needs?
The right products for your loading dock can help your brand meet the demands of regulatory organizations like the USDA and FDA. Here are some of the specific products we provide that keep your food and beverage-based loading dock a safe, sanitary place for deliveries.
Vehicle restraints are pieces of equipment that serve a dual purpose for preventing food contamination at your loading dock.
The sudden movement of a loading truck at your dock can lead to the dangerous shifting of food and beverage products. Jarring movements can result in food spillage, contamination, and unsanitary conditions at your loading dock. Vehicle restraints hold delivery trailers in place and allow for a smooth and efficient loading process.
Vehicle restraints also keep trailers connected to loading dock seals that keep dirt and debris away from perishable products. Without vehicle restraints in place, a trailer can easily shift away from a seal and let in unsanitary conditions that could harm the quality of your food and beverage products.
Loading Dock Levelers
Hydraulic dock levelers help keep the pathway between the trailer and your loading dock even. While this detail may seem minute, ensuring that your loading dock has a level loading path mitigates the risk of spills, slip and fall accidents, and overall inefficiencies that could arise with an unlevel walkway.
Perimeter seals provide unmatched protection for the food and beverage products that are loaded and unloaded at your loading dock. Not only do loading dock seals keep your dock energy efficient and comfortable, but they also provide a seal against exterior contaminants that could break through and taint your valuable inventory.
High-Speed Overhead Doors
Overhead insulated sectional doors can quickly roll into and out of position for loading and unloading that lets in as little cool air as possible.
When closed, the insulated design of these commercial doors continues to protect the integrity of your loading dock.
