TRACTOR TRAILER PREDADOOR NXT, ETOBICOKE | CASE STUDY
Wilcox Door Service Inc.
Any Application, Any Purpose
Thisfood distribution centre had been using a tractor trailer as extra storage space. However, the food needed to be temperature controlled.
The solution was to install a 74"w x 84"h Rytec PredaDoor NXT inside the tractor trailer. A steel door frame had to be constructed along with a pair of track guards on each side of the door. Further specs include an AC drive motor, dynamic breaking and a dual-chamber auto-reversing soft touch edge.
36" bollards were also installed to prevent any impacts to the inside and outside of the door frame. The door itself can withstand impacts, however, safety features are in place to prevent the door from closing on anyone or anything. This includes a dual chamber, auto-reversing soft tough edge, Pathwatch Safety System and 2 sets of photo cells.
All in all, this permanent trailer is now a fully-functioning cold-storage room for produce. What makes your warehouse unique? Comment below!
Welcome to the Wilcox FitBit Challenge! New Year, New Goals. A common resolution is to be more active, eat healthier and overall, become more fit. What better way to do that than with a friendly office competition? We've divided everyone that has a FitBit (or similar device) into two teams. Both teams are a mixture of our Mississauga and Hamilton offices. This competition starts on Monday at 12:01 AM, ending on Friday at 11:59PM. Each team has a leader that is responsible for posting the total number of steps by noon each day. This will allow both teams to know where they stand and see if they can out-do each other. The team leader will post final scores by Saturday and the winning team will be revealed next week! Stay tuned to see this competition unveil. Good luck to all participants & Happy Stepping! Team leader Sara sent this video to her teammates to get the ball rolling! "Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go... Keep Walking!!…
Making the Inaccessible, Accessible We're proud to introduce this month's volunteer, Tom Cunningham, our Business Development Coordinator. Tom chose to volunteer at this year's Edit: Design Expo in support of March of Dimes; "programs and services to maximize the independence and community participation of children & adults with disabilities." But why did he choose to support this cause? "Tom Cunningham (too tall) as he is affectionately known, was diagnosed with Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis (JRA) from his jaw to his toes at the age of 5. Forty-nine years later, he has been hospitalized about 40 times and had 4 hips, 4 knees and 2 shoulders replaced. Tom endures constant, chronic pain in 3 to 6 joints at all times, ranging in severity from day to day achiness." For over 65 years, March of Dimes has provided services from the medically-fragile, to seniors, families, caregivers, employers and health insurance companies. As you can imagine, Tom must overcom…
