Zoneworks Flexible Loading Dock Enclosure Saves Energy

Zoneworks introduces the TZD line of flexible fabric wall systems to enclose interior loading dock areas. The adaptable wall systems substantially reduce facility energy costs and greatly enhance employee comfort at the loading dock without the need to build costly permanent walls, or rigid panelized systems.

Zoneworks insulated fabric wall systems act as barriers to separate the inside dock from the rest of the facility, eliminating the need to heat or cool the expansive space accessed by trucks. The walls stop the rapid influx of cold or hot air, as well as humidity, every time an exterior dock door is opened. The modular wall system can also be used to completely enclose an open-air dock for better overall environmental control and energy savings.

Each Zoneworks dock system is custom-designed to address the unique environmental needs of the application. The systems incorporate the use of Zoneworks’ TZ Series of Insulated Curtain Walls, the only flexible walls capable of providing temperature separation up to 40°F (22°C). The modular wall panels are constructed of durable, fire-retardant vinyl surrounding multiple layers of recyclable, anti-microbial polyester batting, and are securely interconnected with Velcro®.

Heavy-duty sliding curtains provide access to individual dock stations. The curtains can be easily opened and closed via a track and trolley system built into the top of the system’s doorframe. Curtains are typically anchored to the dock surface with sturdy drop pins that easily slide in and out of position.

They system’s stationary curtain walls can be affixed to existing building structures (such as ceiling joists), or custom metal frameworks can be constructed. Custom engineering ensures a proper fit around corners and any obstructions. Zoneworks industry specialists also provide on-site design consultation and complete drawings, as well as turnkey project support, including installation coordination if needed.
