Adjustable-curtain dock seals are an effective solution for dock doors which service trucks/trailers of varying heights. After the truck/trailer compresses the side pads, the dock attendant simply lowers the adjustable-header curtain to the truck/trailer top, forming a three-sided seal around the rear of the trailer. The adjustable-header curtain minimizes the potential for header damage, which can occur with fixed-curtain type dock seals due to impact from forklift truck masts or loads.
Rigid dock shelters are designed to allow complete, unobstructed access to the rear of a truck/trailer for easier loading and unloading operations. The curtains of the shelter seal the top and sides of the trailer by exerting pressure through stays (fiberglass spring material) built into the top and side curtains. Standard units are supplied with bottom draft pads and heavy-duty structural steel protective guards.
Ultima Dock Shelters
Ultima Dock Shelters are a unique design permitting full access to the rear door. This model of dock shelter is an alternative to the rigid side frames of a conventional dock shelter. The soft-sided foam frame design takes incidental impact from the incoming vehicle without damage to the shelter frame.
L-Pad Dock Seals
L-Pad dock seals are an effective solution for larger door openings which service trucks/trailers of varying widths. The side pads yield to incoming trucks/trailers in order to reduce the possibility of damage to the seal and/or building, yet still possess the sealing capability of a conventional foam seal. L-Pad dock seals form a three-sided seal around the rear of the truck/trailer and allow for complete and unobstructed access to the truck/trailer.
Inflatable Dock Shelters
Rigid Inflatable dock shelters are the ideal choice to allow complete, unobstructed access to the rear of a truck/trailer for easier loading and unloading. Air bags inflate quickly to contact both the top and sides of the truck/trailer for the most effective seal. The inflatable air bags retract back behind the protective curtains when not in use. These units are supplied complete with bottom pads and heavy-duty structural steel protective guards.
Rail Dock Shelters
Inflatable rail shelters provide the most effective weather-protected passageway between a rail car and the loading dock. When the shelter is activated, it inflates to contact the rail car that creates and maintains a positive seal. This reduces heating and/or cooling costs, protects products, and increases workplace safety. When not in use, the unit rests deflated against the building wall.
