When part of your business relies on consistently moving products in and out of your loading dock, your choice in door can make a huge impact on profits and productivity. Goff’s bug doors on your loading dock can solve plenty of common problems you are experiencing.


Here’s 4 loading dock problems that can be solved with bug doors:

1. Productivity loss from opening and closing the door all day

Metal doors can be extremely slow to open and close and could even become a bottleneck to operations. After all, you don’t want to just leave the door open all day. However, our mesh bug doors can be fitted with high-powered motors that allow them to open and close within seconds to maximize productivity in your facility.

2. Choosing between ventilation and insects

Warehouses can easily become stuffy and difficult to work in, potentially making it difficult for your employees to work through if the temperatures are high enough. The problem is trying to achieve ventilation without letting bugs, pests and other potential contaminants into your warehouse. Bug doors are made to block those insects, while allowing natural airflow into your facility, creating a more comfortable work environment for your employees.

3. High energy costs

Another big bonus to utilizing bug doors in your loading dock is that they can significantly lower energy costs, particularly where air conditioning is concerned. The airflow our doors provide can reduce the need to run climate control within the warehouse, ultimately leading to lower energy bills. Not to mention our mesh provides a 65% shade factor eliminating sun exposure.

4. Expensive damage to doors

If, for example, a forklift accidentally runs into a heavy metal door, that’s going to leave a mark. The forklift, the door, or even both could be damaged, and that will get expensive to fix. Goff’s bug doors are designed to easily pop off their rails if an impact occurs and will auto reset itself back into its tracks. If damage happens to occur, swapping panels is easy and inexpensive to do on Goff’s doors.
