Dubai, UAE, 9 May 2018: Hörmann Middle East and Africa has launched the upgraded DOBO system for warehouses, which ensures increased security and reduces heat loss through the loading bay doors when trucks dock, the company announced in a Press communiqué.

The DOBO system ensures safety and prevention of theft, the communiqué said. With this system, the lorry doors are only opened shortly before loading and the semi-trailer can remain docked to the loading bay unattended, for example, overnight, the communiqué further said. It also provides safety for drivers, as they can dock completely without exiting the vehicle, and do not have to enter the zone between the vehicle and the ramp, the communiqué added.

The DOBO system is also perfect for refrigerated warehouses, the communiqué said. To fully utilise the floor space of a refrigerated warehouse, the DOBO system is combined with a thermal loading house, the communiqué further said. The industrial door closes the loading house from the outside and the temperature-controlled area is insulated efficiently through insulated panels on the exterior walls and under the pedestals, as well as the door in front of the dock leveller, the communiqué added. The DOBO system can prevent any interruption of the cold chain of refrigerated or frozen goods, as the lorry doors are only opened after docking, the communiqué also said.

Commenting on the upgraded system, Darius Khanloo, Managing Director, Hörmann Middle East and Africa, said: “Hörmann DOBO system is a well-designed solution for precisely compensating the differences in height between various lorry floors and ramps. With dock levellers, the load can be moved in or out of the lorry in a single horizontal movement.”
