Loading bay equipment from Easilift Loading Systems has been specified for two state-of-the-art, architect-designed warehouses in Trafford Park Industrial Estate, Manchester.
Both buildings feature external structural steel frames that give a clear internal space with no columns or cladding. This optimises racking layouts and provides an unusual external appearance.
Designed by Manchester architects, DGP International, the larger building within the £2m development contains 39,000 sq ft of high bay warehousing and distribution facilities together with 6,000 sq ft of office accommodation.
Operated by a distribution company, the building's three loading bays are equipped with Easilift insulated sectional overhead doors measuring 3,000mm wide x 3,750mm high, together with inflatable dock shelters.
To bridge the difference in height and distance between the loading bay and the vehicle floor, the bays feature Easilift Poweramp 232 swing/hinged lip type fully hydraulic dock levellers measuring 2m wide x 2.5m long. Easilift also equipped the bays with traffic lights and a fully integrated control panel.
The second, smaller building has 29,000 sq ft of internal warehousing space. It has been fitted with three Easilift sectional overhead doors measuring 3,500mm wide x 5,000mm high, a sectional door measuring 4,000mm wide x 5,000mm high and 11 steel hinged personnel and fire exit doors.
