Industrial Door Company (IDC), a local commercial door business since 1985, just installed a new elevating dock at Prime Data Center, which is located in McClellan Park. Prime Data Center is part of the Sacramento Data Center Campus, a 38-acre data substation that sits within the 3,000-acre business park.
The company’s custom dock was manufactured by Pioneer, a leader in high-quality industrial dock equipment. Swinerton Builders, based out of San Francisco, was the contractor that handled the job. IDC was involved due to its many previous successful door and dock installations across Northern California with Swinerton.
IDC worked with Swinerton on the design, placement and installation of the large dock, which required the use of a horizontal crane to hoist it into place. The installation was particularly precise and difficult due to having to perform the installation from the exterior of the building, as well as to the dock’s custom design and where it was placed at Prime Data Center’s warehouse.
Elevating docks, also commonly called dock lifts, reduce the risk of worker injury by eliminating the need to manually transfer cargo from the trailer bed to the ground. They improve productivity, safety and efficiency at loading bays.
