Loading houses for warehouses comprise a pedestal with dock leveller, wall and ceiling cladding and an opening for loading with dock shelter. They can be supplied as individual units or as several units in a row.
They are installed in front of the building, which makes them ideal for applications where space inside the warehouse is restricted or where use of the space needs to be maximised.
Whenever there is a space problem inside the warehouse, the building does not allow internal ramps or tailboard access is not available, the Hörmann loading house provides a good solution.
Loading houses are available with pedestal add-ons are also available, for arrangements positioned at an angle of 30°, 45° or 60° to the building in order to provide a wider range for manoeuvring.
The pedestal forms the base of the loading house, and the HLS-2 or HTL-2 dock leveller can be used. Height-adjustable supports enable subsequent adjustment of the pedestal level (e.g. after the building has settled). When carrying out alterations to the building or moving premises, the pedestals can be dismantled and re-assembled.
Loading houses in combination with dock shelters are particularly recommended for the transfer of temperature-sensitive goods. Lorries can dock at a right angle to the building or from the side at an acute angle.
