This shelf configuration simplifies architectural design and construction and is the easiest application to clean and maintain, which is a benefit Glazier embraced fully. â€œWe use verticals,â€ says Glazier Vice President of Operations Bob Sarvis, â€œbecause by eliminating the pit, keeping the dock area clean is very easy.â€
Management throughout the supply chain is keenly concerned about cleanliness, which, as Sarvis
puts it, â€œis a big issue for us.â€Â He
feels keeping the dock clean impacts the ability to deliver a safe product to the table and comply with food regulations.
Moreover, according to Sarvis
, â€œThe levelers appear to be a whole lot stronger than what we had been using before, especially the beefier size of the shaft on the hydraulic units that deploy the levelers.â€
