The Crawford 680 loadhouse is an independent loading system, containing all the relevant components: leveller, shelter and door. Together with the Autodock bottom platform and an insulated or non-insulated cladding house, a complete, stand-alone dock loading system is formed. Placed outside the door opening of a warehouse or terminal, the operator will gain inside space advantages com pared to a conventional, in side docking installation in new as well as in existing buildings – without any major building modifications. Due to the thermal separation between building and docking unit, the Crawford 680 loadhouse can be used in temperature controlled applications. The Crawford 680 loadhouse therefore meets most operator demands.


Due to its flexible design, the Crawford 680 loadhouse can be supplied in straight or angled versions, depending on the ground size outside the loading bay area.


As well as better building utilisation, using the Crawford 680 loadhouse offers energy savings. The premises can be heated or cooled without any air inlet from the outside.
