What Do I Need ? Do I need a Dock Seal or a Dock Shelter?
Dock seals offer the greatest sealing efficiency by providing a tight compression seal around the trailer top and sides. The tradeoff is that full access to trailer openings is restricted by the cushion padding that protrudes into the opening, and the seals, due to great pressure and friction, are subject to extreme wear. Dock seals are also suited best to smaller door openings and consistent truck sizes.
Dock shelters give a complete unobstructed access to the truck trailer beds, but usually do not seal as tightly as a dock seal. Dock shelters provide greater versatility by handling incoming trucks with a variety of sizes and configurations, including tailgates or other extensions. Shelters can also fit larger door openings and are subject to less damage from pressure and friction.
There are a variety of options that can help a seal wear more durably in a high traffic dock area. Our experienced commercial & industrial dock solution providers can help guide you to the right selection for your situation and applications.
Our experienced sales technicians will analyze your operation and help you look at options, including: upgraded vinyl fabric, rain shields (installed above a dock seal to prevent water from entering the building), wear pleats, ect. We can help you obtain all the benefits and advantages of efficient dock seal solutions, including maintenance and repair cost reduction, maximum up time for your dock operation, and a solid return on your investment.
