Frequently Asked Questions
Many of our clients have questions about our products and services. We’ve answered some of the ones we hear most often for you to get you started.
What is a vehicle restraint, and how do I choose one?
A vehicle restraint is a device to prevent the moving of the truck when loading or unloading freight. This is typically a large metal hook and chain secured to the base of the dock. The hook and chain can be attached either to the frame of the truck or the bumper. Vehicle restraints tend to be versatile between trucks, so you will need to ensure that the restraint you purchase is highly durable, strong, and reliable.
What is a dock seal or shelter, and how do I choose one?
Dock seals and shelters are placed around the loading dock to ensure that there will be no gaps between the truck and the loading dock when loading and unloading. This is particularly important when you need to have constant temperature. Seals and shelters typically have a tradeoff between maneuverability and sealing power. Seals for temperature control require precise placement, while shelters allow for more maneuverability for the truck.
What is a standard loading dock size?
There is currently no set standard for a dock door. 8 ft. x 9 ft. is common, and most doors are between 8 and 10 feet high. Width can vary between 7’6” and 10 feet. The requirements of the trucks you will be working with will dictate the necessary size in most cases.
As an authorized distributor of Multi-Fab and TriLite products parts, PartsBrite has specialized in providing aftermarket loading dock parts directly to personnel in the shipping industry. If your firm has professional staff that maintain loading docks, PartsBrite would be honored to supply them with the necessary loading dock parts.
PartsBrite does not provide authorized installers, so as a customer, you will need to make sure anyone repairing or installing new loading dock parts has the proper training and has the necessary certification to perform the work. PartsBrite is happy to provide referrals for authorized installation personnel in your area.
Our sales office is in Southern California, but PartsBrite is happy to service loading dock personnel anywhere in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Feel free to reach out to us on our website, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or at 1-855-PartsBrite if you have any questions.
