TKO WelterWeight Impactable Dock Doors

WW Series Welterweight

Accidents are unfortunately very common in warehouses and on loading docks. Any busy environment that involves equipment like forklifts will likely have some kind of dock-door damage in time. It’s just too easy for a forklift to back into a door if the weather is bad or the operator is in a hurry. It’s for this reason that knock-out doors were designed. There are a number of knock-out door options, but the TKO® WW Series Welterweight® Impactable Door is the most cost effective for facilities that see moderate panel damage and track damage. Let’s go over the benefits of this door. 

Dock Doors Are an Investment

A good dock door is not cheap, so no one wants to see one experience damage. They are costly to repair or replace. This is why installing knock-out doors is so important. Knock-out doors are designed to flex and knock out when impacted, minimizing damage to the door panels and the track. This is a much more affordable, long-term solution to the problem of frequent crashes than regularly replacing your dock doors. 

TKO Welterweight Impactable Doors

What design features do Welterweight Impactable Doors have? They feature:

  • A full-height, 12-gauge, galvanized-steel track
  • A 2-inch thick insulated, closed-cell foam-core panel with damage-resistant polymer interior facing
  • Heavy-duty retractable plungers that allow the door to release from the opening upon impact
  • A tight perimeter weather seal that incorporates a brush seal and loop seal to eliminate air infiltration and light gaps – attached to the panel, not the door jamb
  • Heavy-duty zinc-plated hinges
  • 2 rugged door lifting handles per door
  • A flexible bottom seal for an airtight fit to the floor

Optional Additions

If the above features don’t seem like enough door protection, there are other options available to add to make this door even tougher. These include:

The Clear Vision Panel – This see-through panel is 21 inches high and 1.75 inches thick and runs the full width of the panel for full visibility outside of the facility. 

The Super Bottom Panel – Most dock-door impacts happen at the bottom of the door. This panel adds more strength and durability where it matters most. 

Impact-A-TrackImpact-A-Track products are designed to protect door tracks in high-traffic areas and improve visibility of dock restraint status. They provide total protection against the worst impacts, are available in 3-foot, 6-foot, or full-height options, and come with a 5-year impact warranty. 

When Is the TKO Welterweight Impactable Door the Best Option? 

This door is the most cost-effective and versatile option if your facility experiences moderate panel damage, moderate-to-severe track damage, higher wind-load requirements, or you have budget restraints. It carries a 1-year material and workmanship warranty.
