Free Standing Frames and Dock Houses

Inkema’s Free-standing frames and Dock Houses are designed specifically for each customer, to speed up the installation of a loading bay, improve the internal insulation of the warehouse and increase the storage capacity of the building. The free-standing frame is made of metal and substitutes the pit. It supports the loading bay. It is supplied with different finishes:

  • without walkay,
  • with one walkway
  • and with two walkays.

The dock house system couples the builing to the vehicle. It can be with or without an isothermal structure. And depending on the different needs, they can be supplied only the structure so that the client can adopt it to his façade, in sandwich panel, prefabricated concrete or sheet metal enclosure. 

The roof of a standard tunnel is formed by a special anti-drip ribbed panel, as well as having a certain slope to prevent water accumulation, draining all rainwater to the front gutter. Optionally, a dock shelter can be added to improve energy savings and thermal insulation.

Various dock shelter types are available:
