Weather stripping for  overhead doors and loading dock :

Missing, damaged, or improperly installed weatherstripping on overhead doors and dock levelers can be costly. A quarter inch gap around a standard 9’ x10’ overhead door and dock leveler is like having a one square foot hole in the wall for cold air and moisture to pour in. The more docks with weatherstripping problems, the higher the energy costs in the facility. On average, effective eatherstripping pays for itself in 2-3 months while increasing comfort inside the facility. Dor and Dok systems will add weather stripping to your Door or Dock to increase energy efficiency and save thousands of dollars every year afterwards.

  • Cold weather Applications: Air sealing to keep the cold weather out

Overhead Doors

Sectional overhead doors are often specified for upfront cost savings on the doors themselves and not for long term energy advantages. As a result, many commercial and industrial facilities are forced to deal with the shortcomings of doors that meet minimum construction standards but don’t adequately handle the snow, cold, and wind
The reason is that many standard sectional doors (pan doors) are constructed as hollow shells with Styrofoam pieces inserted. When pan doors are dented or damaged their thermal resistance decreases. When a damaged overhead door section is replaced with one that doesn’t match the original manufacturer, the door sections may not seal properly resulting in energy loss.

Thermal break, formed-in-place, insulated overhead doors provide an efficient and cost effective alternative to pan doors. A thermal break is simply a rubber gasket between door sections. The gasket blocks air from passing between door sections whether the door is in motion or not. Foamed-in-place means the door shell is filled with expanding polyurethane which creates a strong, monolithic panel with much better thermal efficiency than pan doors. Thermal break, foamed-in-place, insulated overhead doors cost marginally more than typical pan doors. But the marginal cost is usually more than made of for with return on investment. Thermal break, foamed-
in-place, insulated overhead doors can pay for themselves in as little as 2 years. They’re also more durable and tend to increase the lease and resale value of commercial and industrial properties.

Dock Seals and Shelters

A dock seal is a system of vinyl covered compressed foam padding which lines the edge of a loading dock door. Dock seals are designed to close and protect the gap between the dock door opening and a truck trailer so that the process of loading and unloading isn’t negatively impacted by the elements. Without efficient seal solutions in place, dock operations are at risk for cold air and snow penetration, energy loss, unsafe loading and unloading conditions, and damage to products and equipment. Unlike a dock seal, a dock shelter is a structure with a curtain style cover designed to protect the space between a truck trailer and the building from the elements. Dock shelters cannot be used in conjunction with dock seals and vice-versa. Dock shelters are typically installed when dock seals aren’t an effective solution or a building must accommodate a variety of truck styles and sizes.

Weather stripping Door seals

Our industrial brush weather stripping has been designed and field tested as door seals for hot weather applications – keeping the cool air in and cold weather applications keeping the cold weather out. This weather stripping is used for all types of door seal applications such as dock levelers, entry doors, aircraft hangar doors, sectional overhead doors, rolling steel doors, swinging doors and hollow metal doors as industrial weather strip. Door seals are the most common application of weather stripping. Our brush door seals are very unique as a weather stripping material because it not only seals far more effectively than a solid vinyl or neoprene, but because it is virtually indestructible. Our type 6 nylon brush seals are recommended for food processing and handling facilities. They are U.L. Rated as “Gasketing Material for Fire Doors” (viable from -100ºF to +200ºF).

Weather Seal For Overhead Doors

To minimize air and dirt infiltration around rolling steel, sectional and sliding overhead doors,install the best weather seals available. Brush Weather seal’s unique property of conforming to irregular surfaces provides the most effective sealing. Thousands of filaments form a solid wall for a complete weather – tight seal without impairing door movement. Order with slots & screws, or with easy-to-install double backed tape.

Adjustable Door Bottom seal

Made from black santoprene rubber, these seals cushion doors when closing and won’t tear or deform and remain pliable in the coldest weather. The clear (matte silver) aluminum holder comes slotted to allow for adjustments and perfect fit.

Door Jamb Weatherseal Door

Aluminum door jamb holders are available in clear (silver color), duranodic (brown color) and polished brass (gold color) finishes. These holders are available for doors 3’, 4’, and 6’ wide by 7’ high. Kits come with screw slots for after-installation adjustment or with counter – sunk holes for a neat, flush finish. Aluminum door jamb holders are available in clear (silver color), duranodic (brown color) and polished brass (gold color) finishes.

Brush Weather Seal For Entry Doors

The importance of sealing openings in a building applies to entrance doors just as it does to overhead doors. Any gap around a door causes energy loss due to air infiltration. Dirt and debris are just as much of a problem. Brush designed as Door Bottom Seals and Door Jamb Seals provide the most effective means of solving these problems. Mounted using special finished holders, brush weatherseals provide an attractive and effective solution to gaps for any door.

BRUSH STRIP / BRUSH SEALS

Our brushes are suitable for draught prevention, dust control, noise reduction, guides, pest proofing, spray booths, garage doors, industrial doors, cold rooms, light seals, vehicles, boats, greenhouses, conveyors, dock levellers, cabinets and sealing all types of doors and windows. We have brushes from 3 mm and up.

Dock Leveler Brush Seals

One of the most vulnerable areas in any plant is its dock levelers. This is because even when the plant is closed, the space under a dock leveler is open. If the sides and back of the dock leveler are not sealed, rodents, insects, and air can easily enter the plant. Our specially designed brush dock seals will seal a dock leveler virtually air-tight. When the bottom of the shipping door over the leveler is sealed as well, the loading dock seals keep the whole dock leveler sealed tight. Don’t let air, dust and pests infiltrate the gaps around your dock leveler. Our nylon brush dock seals and weather stripping provide an extremely effective way of preventing heat loss and providing non-chemical pest control along with dust control around dock levelers. With dock door seals, you can feel confident that any outside penetration will be non-existent. Give us a call at Dor and dok systems and upgrade your dock leveler with our custom fitted dock seals.
