POY Finalist: Vertical leveler dock door
Finalist in Material Handling Systems in Plant Engineering’s 2011 Product of the Year competition
The VertiCool door was specifically designed for use with vertical storing dock levelers. The VertiCool features a 4-in.-thick R-23 insulated panel that mirrors the insulated wall panel for superior thermal protection in 48-in. panel heights, reducing the number of panel joints by 50%—which allows for easy cleaning and better energy efficiency.
Dual-compression side seals are mounted to the door panel to prevent damage and maintain effectiveness outside, while a closed-cell foam interior prevents moisture accumulation and additional door damage inside.
