Industrial Loading Bay Canopy Protects Stock and Staff

A Trio of industrial loading bay canopies delivered

New loading canopy  structures were provided to help loading and unloading operations at Oak Furnitureland. They help protect stock from damage and increase efficiencies with lighting, enabling round the clock productivity. 

One of the key benefits of a loading bay canopy is how seamlessly they can connect to existing warehouses to increase capacity and efficiency.  They can also be completely free-standing structures acting as container canopies.

The Requirement

Freight forwarding, logistics and fulfilment is a fast-moving environment; every second counts to ensure efficient and safe transfer of goods in the loading area. Our client Oak Furnitureland required a set of three loading bay canopies, in various sizes, to provide shelter for the protection of stock and workers during loading and unloading operations. Each industrial loading bay canopy was designed to reduce the risk of losing valuable stock to weather damage, with seamless integration into the existing building and minimal groundwork required.

The Solutions

Field & Lawn was able to provide extra space in the form of three new loading bay canopies for Oak Furniture Land, giving a combined covered space of 1488m2. Each industrial canopy was covered with Challenger High Lumen 50w flood lights to enable around the clock loading and unloading, improving efficiency for the client.
