Dock & Door Preventative Maintenance Service Plans for Dallas/Fort Worth

Dock & Door Preventative Maintenance Plans for the Dallas Fort Worth TX AreaWe all know the importance of keeping our cars or trucks properly maintained. There are many parts that move and rub against each other. As this occurs the force and friction can create problems with overheating, warping, or loosening of components and hardware.  You wouldn’t trust your family in a vehicle that wasn’t safe – the same should apply for warehouse equipment and workers.

Just like getting a tune up or your oil changed on your vehicle, preventative maintenance is equally as crucial for the safety and longevity of your industrial doors and dock equipment. Routine maintenance extends the life of your equipment and also helps to prevent the possibility of downtime and accidents. Without a maintenance plan, failure of your equipment is almost certain.

after-installing-bug-dooreEarly detection of operational malfunctions increases efficiency, safety and reliability.

The loading dock is the heart of your warehouse operations – either you’re receiving products or shipping them out – there’s a lot of movement and energy.  Without this process running smoothly, it can cost money and be detrimental to your client relationships. Your reputation is on the line.

Having a preventative maintenance program is not a guarantee against failure or damage to your equipment, rather it’s an asset to the overall efficiency of your operations.

Best Practice Storage for New Electrical Supply Warehouse in Tyler TX

Custom Material Handling Storage Plannning in Tyler TX by W.W. CannonWhen moving into a new facility, there are many things to consider regarding storage needs.  What is the most efficient way to store our products?  How do we maximize storage to save space?  How do we optimize retrieval in order to speed up delivery?  What equipment do we need to meet our storage capacities?  Which is the safest way to store our products?  Getting the right answers to all the necessary questions saves a bundle of time and money by eliminating guesswork.Pallet rack with shelving for optimum space use in Dallas TX

Best Practice Storage Planning

Our friends at The Reynolds Company in Tyler TX opened a new storage facility to accommodate their growth.  They needed consultation on best-practice storage planning and they came to us for help.   It was determined that the equipment from their previous facility would not provide the safety or storage efficiency to meet their growth needs so we designed a new system for them – from the ground up.

The new facility needed a new, complete storage system customized to their specific operation.  We knew that Reynolds needed to maximize space and efficiency.  We also understood that they have a very specific labeling system for picking that we needed to take into consideration for layout planning and equipment selection.  The entire system was chosen based upon their requirements.

Shelving supported mezzanine systems in Dallas TXOptimal Storage Equipment & Configuration

  • Shelving was installed for small parts storage with pallet rack mounted above the shelving systems.  This configuration took advantage of the vertical space above the shelving.
  • Safety rack guards were added at the end of the pallet rack rows to protect their equipment and products from accidental forklift collision.
  • A Rousseau shelving supported mezzanine system was installed to provide extra parts storage space above the main floor.  Safety handrail, stairs with rough tred, and easy access gate provide necessary operational protection.Wheel rack and cantilever rack for cable and conduit storage in Dallas TX
  • Cantilever rack for pipe and conduit storage keeps products off the ground.  This provided for extra floor space and protection for the equipment.
  • Reel rack was installed to accommodate the many reels of cords, cables, and wires.  This allowed for easy storage and dispensing of the product.
  • Showcase quality gondola shelving was also installed for the store front display products.

Best Practice Solution

We were happy to assist our friends in providing them with a best-practice solution – the most cost-effective and efficient storage system customized to their needs.  Furnished and installed from the ground up, the new storage system will provide for their current growth and adapt to future needs.

Our friends at Reynolds Company were very pleased with their new customized storage system.  They were even more pleased with our installation crew who finished the entire system before the move-in deadline.

It’s Not Too Late – Claim Your 2016 Tax Break on Modular Buildings!


Maybe you’ve been holding on to the budget, or perhaps you’ve had too much on your plate, but if more space is on your to-do list – don’t delay. Starrco enclosures in place by the end of the year qualify for 100% tax depreciation.

2016 is a bonus tax relief year

This year, Congress is allowing businesses to depreciate up to $500,000 of tangible personal property before December 31st.  For example, if you buy a Starrco enclosure for $20,000, you could write off the full amount and save up to $6,800 on your 2016 tax bill.

This bonus depreciation program is part of the government’s efforts to encourage capital expenditure and stimulate the economy. It comes under Section 179 of the Internal Revenue Code.

Will 2017 be a bonus tax relief year?

Yes. But, you’d have to wait until the end of 2017 to claim your tax relief.  We don’t yet know how much Congress will allow you to depreciate in 2017. It may stay at $500,000, but then again, it may change.

Can this apply to any building project?

No. It cannot be applied to conventional construction projects. They are classified as real property and have a 39-year depreciable life. Starrco modular construction, which can be dismantled and put back together in a new location, qualifies as tangible personal property – that is property that can be moved.

Two-Story-Modular-Office-Completion-3Also, Starrco buildings are manufactured and get installed 75 percent faster than conventional construction, so even a tight December delivery deadline is doable but we will check and confirm for you!

Welding Strip Curtains Provide Safety From Welding Hazards

Welding Safety Solutions in Dallas TX

Sparks are going to fly!  So, why not protect your valuable assets, employees, and equipment.

We know that welding stations come with safety hazards for the welders.  However, within a large production facility, workers outside of the welding stations also need to be properly protected.  Welding can expose people to heat, metal fumes, and UV Rays.  Safety hazards from these operations can include burns, eye damage, electrical shock, and cuts.  Many of these can be controlled with proper safety practices and personal protective equipment

Polaris Puts Welding Safety Practices Into Effect

Welding Stations with Welding Safety Curtains in Dallas TXOur friends at Polaris, Huntsville AL, manufacture off-road vehicles, motorcycles, and snowmobiles.  In their large manufacturing facility, there’s welding going on all day long.  The welding workstations were in a separate area of the facility with their own safety barriers – but there was no protective divider to separate the areas.  They were concerned about metal fumes and UV Rays affecting the personnel outside of welding.

Industrial Welding Strip Curtains

We heard their concerns and knew of the right product solution that would offer a physical divider with the proper safety requirements.  Industrial Welding Strip Curtains.  The strip curtains divided the facility into two working areas.

Welding strip curtains, like other welding screens, are tinted red, orange, green, black and blue. They block the harmful UV rays from welding. The strips can be mounted to a free-standing frame, a door opening, or strip curtain track which is supported from above. You can also just purchase the strips with no hardware at all.

Protection From UV Rays & Fumes

The red, see-through PVC strips that were installed by our team for Polaris, are specially designed to block harmful UV Rays in order to protect the eyesight of nearby workers.  The strips are slightly overlapped to create a good seal from one side to the other – providing protection against harmful metal fumes and heat.

Polaris’ employees were very pleased with the upgraded safety conditions to their work environment.  We’re happy to have played a part in Polaris’ safety program.

W.W. Cannon Helps Put Volkswagen’s Distribution Center into Drive

Mezzanine Storage System for Volkswagen Auto Parts - W.W. Cannon Dallas TXVolkswagen Group of America was looking to repurpose an existing storage warehouse into a large automotive parts distribution center at its Sacramento, California location. The repurposed building required an array of materials including a 20,000 square foot three-level pick module mezzanine, metal shelving and drawers, a material lift to move items for shipping and restocking, with additional lighting and sprinklers.

Material lift for product transportation“They wanted a turnkey project,” says Dave Johnson, material handling specialist. “Everything that was involved from the mezzanine, the shelving, the material lift, along with sprinklers and lighting was integrated into one system, through one company – W.W. Cannon.”

Project Planning, Engineering & Permits

Volkswagen had a layout in mind that showed the dimensions of the pick module mezzanine and where the lift and shelving should go when they contacted us for the project. The end goal was an efficient, integrated system to move inventory up and down from the ground level to the other two levels, with quick and easy picking from the organized shelving and storage system.

But to make this turnkey request a reality, Johnson had some hurdles to overcome.

Swinging mezzanine access safety gates

“With California being a high seismic zone, there was a lot of engineering that went into the project and permitting with the city,” Johnson says. “Much of that had to do with the building itself. What type of slab? We had to pour footings for each of the mezzanine columns and get that inspected. The position of the lift moved from the initial drawings. All told we went through four drawing approvals.”

Once the purchase order was made, the planning process began in earnest.  Planning, drawing and permitting took until just after Christmas, which required W.W. Cannon to accelerate the timetable to complete the installation before Volkswagen moved into the building.

Completed Ahead Of Schedule

“We finished around the end of April and were able to meet their timeline,” Johnson says. We were able to get the project complete ahead of schedule before they needed to go live.”

Pallet Rack Systems integrated with Mezzanine Systems installed by W.W. Cannon in Dallas TX

Johnson attributes much of the success of the project to the stellar W.W. Cannon installation crew. “Communication between us, Volkswagen and our own installation crew made it run smoothly.”  This was a true team effort, not only between W.W. Cannon and Volkswagen,  but also with the manufacturers for the project: Cogan, Rousseau and PFlow.

A Success Story In Every Way

Once installation was complete, a manager for Volkswagen told Dave Johnson, “I had the opportunity to see the finished mezzanine during the grand opening event a couple of weeks ago. The structure looks fantastic! I’m very appreciative of you for coordinating all your teams to have the structure in place prior to our go-live date. We’re very fortunate to be able to work with a great company and great people like you on the project.”
