Retractable or Fixed Frame Buildings

Our range of retractable and fixed frame buildings provides precision space for covered operational requirements for loading, holding and processing work. These buildings are available with modular docks and loading bays, both level and raised, offering retractable solutions for restricted access. These will easily disassemble for transport to other locations.

What are Industrial Buildings / Tents?

Industrial buildings / tents warehouses provide low-cost storage systems, which are relocatable without loss of value to the asset. They may also be clad in any conventional material.

The basic concept of an industrial tent is a free-standing independent structure to which a flexible flame-retardant PVC based skin is fixed and tensioned. Industrial tent warehouses, due to the construction, apply very little loading onto the ground, so they don’t require expensive foundations. Unlike modern steel framed buildings, industrial tents can be fixed with ground anchors and ratchet straps for rapid deployment.

Our special range of industrial tents can be manufactured to retract. They can structurally perform a range of functions from ‘lean-to’ to small aircraft hangers and examples of these industrial tents are shown in our extensive gallery. You will see industrial tents being used to provide undercover storage space between buildings and to provide sports halls. Our industrial tents are not limited to industry, they work well anywhere.

Dock Levellers Loading Bays

Dock Levellers enable trailers to be left and marshalling to be conducted on the trailer, freeing up valuable floor space. It takes pressure away from warehousing and manufacturing operations whilst allowing hauliers the luxury of not having tractors permanently tied up awaiting loading/unloading. The speed of operations dramatically improves vehicle turnaround time, which in turn means lower distribution costs. Need something special? Ask! A solution to loading on demand and fast roll-on/roll-off pallet and product turnaround times. Prepare and marshal in advance on turn round HGV traffic in half the time with pedestrian control handling equipment and drive-in fork traffic. The systems have many safety and operational accessories all with proven results that cut costs and improve efficiency in the supply line process. Levellers can be made to task and have doors available as part of the package for the fully integrated door and dock leveller solution.
High Speed Doors Dock Shelters

With opening and closing rates of 1 mps and a range of auto-operating options, these doors really speed up work, reduce accidents and help temperature and management in the workplace. They can be fitted and operational in a day and have a low cost of ownership. Keep cargos dry and free of packaging contaminated by sealing of the trailers during loading. Need something out of the ordinary, then ask about our retracting tunnel shelters, canopies, 'angled' docks and pull-out shelters, all accompanied by a full range of goods lifts, scissor lifts up to a 100 tonnes, loading platforms and fast doors. If this doesn't fix the problem, request an engineer and we will make it for you.
