Microbrewery Looks for Help With Loading Dock

A leading microbrewery contacted DH Pace to solve an approach issue with their loading dock. 


The loading dock area had a fairly steep decline in the approach that didn’t leave enough room for the trailer to safely access the specified standard hydraulic pit style levelers and bumpers. Re-pouring the approach or reconfiguring the concrete leveler pit was not an option as they had already been poured.


DH Pace recommended a design to cantilever the dock leveler out from the building slightly and supply special dock bumpers to fit the custom application. This solved the safety concern, allowed for efficient use of the dock space and was the most cost effective solution for the customer.


DH Pace can work with you when there are constraints that discount the obvious answer.
