Dock Seals and Dock Shelters
We offer both dock seals and dock shelters to accommodate any dock opening size. Both options greatly reduce energy costs through reduced heating and cooling of your facility. Dock seals create a tight fitting seal directly around the trailer. They use the compression of high density memory foam to seal the gaps. Dock shelters accommodate larger opening sizes without interfering with the forklift’s path into the trailer. They create a barrier around the exterior of the trailer and hug the sides and top to create a seal. We are happy to survey your facility and discuss your individual needs to recommend the proper selection for your application.
Why have a dock Assessment? With the number of trucks “ in and out” of your facility, the docks are a busy place. So busy, that you can’t afford to have a dock down at that critical time of the day, week, month or season. With more and more companies going with “Just In Time” manufacturing, each dock’s dependable operation is more critical than ever before.
