Any business which is dependent on the loading or unloading of deliveries could benefit from the installation of a loading dock. Commonly a feature of commercial and industrial businesses, they can help to create a dry, safe and energy efficient working environment in which your employees can operate.


As Hormann’s Eastern Region partner, we can offer their complete range of loading bay docks and associated products for your business. Hormann’s highly qualified team are at the forefront of driving innovation and as a result have developed high quality products which have been installed throughout the world. 


In addition to their loading docks, we can also supply and install:


  • Dock Levellers: Your business will likely deal with lorries of varying heights and as a result the dock leveller has become an essential tool in modern logistics. As the leading name in the development of dock levellers and loading technology, Hormann have developed equipment which is 100% compliant with all major legal directives and offers a safe and efficient solution.
  • Dock Shelters: The Hormann dock shelters we supply and install are mounted on a galvanised steel frame and feature high quality top and side flaps. Each flap is manufactured from tear-resistant material and is capable of adjusting to suit varying lorry sizes. The result is an environment which allows you to quickly and effortlessly unload your vehicles.
  • Dock Seals: Our range of dock seals can be supplied in four different styles to suit your specific requirements. This includes full height versions, link and scissor arms types, inflatable and special applications. Each is designed to adjust to a range of lorry sizes and provides a seal around the vehicle, ensuring that cold air doesn’t come into a heated building or heat into refrigerated warehouses.

With such a range of high quality products from which to choose, our experienced surveyors can advise on the most appropriate solution to meet the needs of your business.
