Dock shelter/ Truck shelter :
Dock shelters allow trucks to back into the shelter and have full access to the rear of the truck, providing easy loading and unloading of products.Dock shelters, also known as Truck Shelters, come in a wide variety of sizes and models making them the most versatile truck to dock sealing product on the market.Truck Shelters provide full access to the trailer opening. This speeds up loading and unloading the rear of the trailer while reducing damage caused to your seal. The seal is set through the use of hanging curtains with spring steel stays designed to slide along the outside of the trailer as it docks, thus providing an effective weather seal regardless of the trailer size.
The side and top curtains create a seal by flexing inward and conforming to the truck. Personnel and equipment work inside under protection, eliminating damage to merchandise by rain, snow, and wind. Dock shelters also help maintain temperatures in climate-controlled facilities, adding to the energy savings benefits. The flexible structures can withstand damaging force and compression when a trailer backs up to the wall for years of reliable performance.
We offer 4 types of Dock Shelter to cover a wide variety of applications.
These are the most popular solution for energy conscious operators. The vehicle reverses into the rigid shelter which then efficiently seals the loading area off with flexible side and top curtains, giving weather protection during the loading and unloading process. This results in an improved and protected working environment.
These are hardwearing and versatile, and particularly suitable for docking systems where the fleet of vehicles are of differing heights and widths. They are universal and effective, and offer a general purpose seal to cater for most applications. This shelter is designed to retract on impact in order to absorb the force from a vehicle as it attaches to the loading bay, thereby extending not only the life of the shelter but also the fabric of the main building. It provides excellent value for money and is an extremely useful and versatile way of sealing the rear of a vehicle to the loading bay.
These shelters provide maximum sealing capabilities, making them particularly suitable for temperature controlled premises, especially as the demands of the temperature chain for chilled and frozen food distributors are very high. The design features incorporated means that they are particularly suited for cold storage areas. In addition to being suitable where there is a wide variation in vehicle height and width, they are also designed to accommodate extra wide doorways where required.
Foam pad dock seals
These are a cost effective solution to sealing the rear of a vehicle to the loading bay, and are particularly suitable for docking systems where the fleet of vehicles are similar in size. The seal is created by the vehicle backing onto the foam pad dock seals, which act as a cushion between the vehicle and the building, and will be compressed until the vehicle meets the dock bumpers where it will come to a stop.
