Hörmann has installed 56 loading bays at The Co-operative Group's new distribution centre at Newhouse, Glasgow.Working alongside main contractor,Winvic, the company installed dock levellers, angled loading houses, dock shelters, chiller and ambient sectional doors, steel door sets, fire exit doors and LED dock lights.

Fully integrated control panels on each bay boost efficiency and safety. Hörmann's hydraulic system with two lifting cylinders and an independent third cylinder to operate the lip (whether swing or telescopic) also enhance safety. Both lifting cylinders have automatic emergency stop valves that can lock the platform instantly.
