DOCK SEALING SOLUTIONS
Nothing could deter the triumphant progress
made in the distribution of cold and frozen products for domestic
and gastronomic consumption. The consumer requires fresh fruit,
vegetables, milk products, fish and meat in a perfect sanitary
state for his table. He is assisted in this by the South African
frozen goods producers and SARDA (S.A. Refrigeration Distribution
Association) who are committed to strict refrigeration standards.
Storage and transport of frozen products up to
-38°C no longer poses a problem, thanks to progress in cold
storage technology. The real difficulties present themselves at
the time of transhipment from the cold storage warehouse to the
refrigeration trucks - frosting of transhipment equipment, thawing
of merchandise, variation in temperatures and significant energy
The challenge faced by designers and architects
is to solve the above problem, while using a loading and unloading
facility that would conform to the various widths of vehicles,
ranging from simple urban transportation to refrigeration trucks
of up to 2.6m wide.
DDL brings a unique solution to this challenge. A loading concept
known as the Dock Sealing System, comprises six different systems
to cover all types of loading and unloading applications.
Whether it's a Dock Cushion Seal, Dock Shelter or Dock Cubicle,
it is possible to reduce the cold air leakage to a point close to
zero in all new or existing cold storage, freezer or chiller
DDL Dock Sealing System offers an efficient solution to the
cold storage chain and the inherent loading problems.
