In recognition of the company’s extensive technical expertise, Stertil Dock & Door Products was invited to put forward detailed proposals for the prestigious Baytree project in Dunstable, Bedfordshire.

A total of 26 loading bays have been installed featuring a range of Stertil products including dock levellers, dock bumpers, dock shelters, dock doors and level access doors.Each loading bay incorporates the Stertil WE 574 collapsible frame dock shelter measuring 3400mm wide by 3600mm high. Comprising rugged head and side curtains, the W Series range of dock shelters can be tailored to fit and effectively seal almost every type and size of vehicle – a perfect combination of versatility, reliability and effectiveness.

Within the dock shelter, at the heart of the loading bay installations, is the Stertil X-Series dock leveller, type XF3020, which offers a safe platform capacity of six tonnes. This latest generation of dock levellers incorporates a 600mm extending telescopic lip which enables the simple loading of goods, including boxes, cages and pallets, up to the absolute end of a vehicle or trailer thereby ensuring maximum space utilisation. This contrasts favourable with a conventional swing lip dock leveller that requires additional space to operate correctly.

Each of the docks features a Thermadoor dock door complete with panoramic windows to ensure maximum natural light thereby enhancing working conditions for the loading bay personnel. Suitable for all industrial applications, the extensive Thermadoor range comprises models for almost every environment and application. All models incorporate a robust construction and heavy duty hardware designed to give a long trouble-free working life in rigorous conditions.

Offering reliable protection to reversing vehicles and the warehouse building, the Stertil installation also includes PE450 dock bumpers at each dock. The latest generation of PE Dock Bumpers from Stertil Dock & Door products provides unrivalled protection for vehicles, loading bays and buildings. The PE dock bumpers’ innovative design also allows left and right bumpers to be simply interchanged and rotated to enable users to achieve four times the working life of traditional dock bumpers.

The Stertil installation also includes three level access doors, measuring 4000mm x 5000mm, to provide free movement of fork trucks and other wheeled loads into and out of the warehouse.
