Dock seals and  Dock shelters :

 

Dock seals  and dock shelters can significantly improve the energy efficiency and environment control of your buildings, to help reduce energy costs. Dock Seals provide an effective barrier against the elements, keeping loading docks safe and efficient. Dock seals also provide a positive seal between internal and external environments. They prevent the passage of dust, insects, exhaust fumes and other airborne particulate matter while the loading dock is in use. We offer the most extensive line of durable and dependable dock seals which can be used for a variety of applications in many different industries. With our many years of experience and excellent customer service, we can provide solutions to meet any of your material handling needs. All Dock Seals are designed to accommodate your slope whether it is a positive or negative grade. All lumber backboards are pressure treated to prevent rotting. The polyurethane foam is the ideal density to form an air – tight seal against the trailer. The foam’s high resiliency prevents foam “sag”, maintaining the seal’s neat appearance and performance time after time.

Factors when selecting a Dock Seal and  Dock Shelter

  • Size of the overhead door to be sealed:

The size of door opening determines most suitable model of seal or shelter to be installed. To select most suitable seals or shelters for specific door openings refer to the size recommendations for each model.

  • Dock bumper projection:

The difference from the face of the wall on which the dock seal or shelter will be mounted to the face of the dock bumper.

  • Dock height:

The difference in the height of the dock from the finished grade to the top of dock floor.

Configuration of Trucks/ Trailers to be sealed:

  1. Width of trucks/trailers serviced
  2. Height of trucks/trailers serviced
  3. Truck bumper projection
  4. Truck/trailer bed heights

Seal/shelter mounting surface:

The strength and type of wall construction may determine the style of seal/shelter to be specified. Inflatable dock seals/ shelters are best suited for applications where the wall is not designed to accept the higher compression forces typical with conventional seals or shelters. Consideration of wall obstructions such as canopies, light fixtures, etc. is essential.

Ideal dock height is 48”-50”. Level vehicle approach is ideal. If approach is declined or inclined adjust bumper projection accordingly. Recommended side and head pad projection is 4”-6” beyond the face of the dock bumpers.

L Shaped Dock Seals

L-Shape dock seal is an effective solution for larger door openings which service trucks/trailers of varying widths. The side pads yield to incoming trucks/trailers to reduce the possibility of damage to the seal and/or building. The PS-700 has the sealing capability of a conventional foam seal. It forms a three-sided seal around the rear of the truck/trailer and still allows for complete and unobstructed access to the truck/trailer. The PS-700’s Pentaswing Adjustable Head Curtain minimizes the potential for curtain damage. The Pentaswing curtain adjusts to a wide range of truck/trailer heights. The head curtain is dropped into position on the top of the truck/trailer after it is in place at the dock.

Inflatable Dock Seal

  • 42” drop inflatable head member seals on the top of the trailer for better sealing and improved protection against rain runoff back into the building
  • 2 side members seal around the back frame of the trailer opening
  • Raked head frame, pressure treated wood, translucent top panel
  • Kiln dried wood side member backboards
  • Galvanized steel trim maintains building aesthetics
  • 4” wide by 24” high yellow guide stripes assists with proper vehicle positioning
  • Completely assembled 1/2/Hp 115-230/1/60 motor/blower
