Loading Dock Planning, Building & Design
Effective loading dock planning and design ensures that your operations can accommodate the material handling needs you have today and into the future. Ongoing changes in the trucking and material handling industry can have a dramatic impact on a loading dock design, requiring new products and innovations. All reasons we offer continuing education options that award The American Institute of Architects (AIA) credits to our customers.
Loading Dock Design for Today and Tomorrow
"Just-in-time" manufacturing and warehousing, high-cube trailers, and air-ride suspensions are some examples of developments that have made cookie-cutter dock designs obsolete.
When you bring an Arbon loading dock expert into your planning and building process, you are making an investment for today and the future. Arbon has been working with architects, end-users, and contractors to stay on top of evolving trends to assure the best solutions for our customers. We take loading dock design so seriously that we have experts who instruct AIA continuing education courses in dock design.
Dock Safety Presentations
Today, there's a growing realization that a safe dock depends on a lot of things, including up-to-date dock design, proper load-handling procedures, effective supervision, and trained people.
Because safety is such an important part of the material handling industry, Arbon offers a dock safety presentation that is registered as an AIA continuing education course.
Arbon and our parent company, Rite-Hite®, recognize the serious need for products that improve loading dock, door, and in-plant safety. Rite-Hite’s research and development team has transformed the material handling industry with groundbreaking safety products such as Dok-Lok®, Safe-T-Lip® Leveler, Safe-T-Strut®, and FasTrax®.
