Service description

Through our partnership with Poweramp, we offer AIA registered loading dock design presentations. Our AIA presentations provide valuable information on dock levelers as well as safety equipment, plus dock seals and shelters. These loading dock safety equipment presentations provide a general overview of the loading dock environment, highlighting areas of particular concern for safety considerations. Offered in a "lunch and learn" format, AIA loading dock design presentations provide an overview of the different components and variables in loading dock equipment and design.

Even if you’ve been in the materials handling, cold storage, or warehousing and distribution businesses for years, or you run a complex industrial facility, a review by way of an AIA loading dock design presentation will refresh your commitment to safety. And a safe loading dock is a more productive loading dock. When your employees see that you care about their safety because you have installed loading dock safety equipment, they’re less stressed, less discouraged, and more productive.

You may think dock leveler design presentations are only for workers who use dock levelers daily. But it’s important for all dock personnel, including management, to understand the safety features of dock levelers and how that equipment fits in with the overall loading dock design. Loading dock safety equipment presentations are for everyone who works in a loading dock environment or who manages those who do.

Facility and business owners also benefit from a thorough understanding of loading dock design and how to optimize that design for efficiency, safety, and even aesthetic appeal. If your facility welcomes vendors, customers, or other visitors, your business’s appearance and adherence to safe practices is on display. Make sure your entire facility, including your loading docks, look clean and bright and display obvious indications that you take safety seriously.

Take advantage of all you can learn at an AIA loading dock design presentation. You may come away with an entirely new perspective or a renewed appreciation of what it takes to operate a functional, efficient, and safe loading dock.

Should you discover that the docks in your facility are in dire need of an overhaul, Excel Solutions® is here to help. We supply top-quality loading dock safety solutions, plus parts and accessories to help you optimize your operation. We also offer planned preventative maintenance programs, replacement parts, and repairs for dock doors, trailer restraint systems, and concrete loading docks.

Deferred maintenance and poor loading dock design will inevitably result in high repair and replacement costs. A loading dock safety equipment presentation can equip you with the knowledge you need to assess your loading dock’s layout and identify components you should add to ensure your workers are safe and your business won’t suffer prolonged downtime and liability from equipment failure, accidents, or injuries.

Whether or not you already know it, a great deal of knowledge is required to outfit a facility with proper equipment and make sure it operates as intended. Instead of blindly delivering equipment, we gather the preliminary data necessary to provide the correctly spec’d equipment for your project. Doing so not only saves you in costs associated with efficiency, but it also ensures you receive the most from your purchase and keeps you from buying the product again prematurely. One great example is loading dock seals. Dock seals require custom fitting to your loading docks with many characteristics taken into account. Without the right information regarding your operations, incorrectly sized dock seals could be purchased and installed, leading to large building gaps and energy loss.

Your operations are unique to your production and facility needs to deliver an unmatched product, which begs the question: why shouldn’t your loading docks be unique as well? Your loading docks are the first and last area to see product and materials entering and leaving your facility. Excel understands the importance of efficient and safe operations, and has the people with knowledge and skills ready to deliver on an excellent loading dock design. Having a properly designed loading dock with the properly spec’d equipment not only reduces costs through energy savings and improved productivity, but it also saves you from replacing your equipment prematurely.

Dealing with an equipment supplier without properly trained technicians could be a large loss to your organization. Without knowledgeable technicians performing repairs on your equipment, problems with your equipment could go unsolved or missed and incorrect parts ordered, leading to losses in time and money. Excel only works with competent technicians without gouging our clients’ pockets – the only way to conduct business.
