A dock door is required for inside/outside loading docks. The most commonly installed doors are manually operated and are either an overhead sectional door or a roller door. A sectional door is smoother and quieter than a roller door because of rollers that run inside of tracks.
Other advantages of a sectional door are:
• They are thicker and stronger than a roller door
• They can be insulated
Common dock door dimensions are 8’0” in width with 8 ft, 9 ft or 10 ft heights. Consider extending the door 13 ft to 14 ft above the driveway and a minimum of 8’6” wide if full access to the truck’s interior is required.
Dock doors dimensions are determined by:
• Type of trucks being serviced
• Sealing system
• Environmental concerns
