Dock Shelter

Dock Shelter

Our dock shelter is designed for environments where there are demands for high sealing between special type trucks and the door opening. As a type of popular loading dock equipment, the dock shelter is also often applied for warehouses, and it mainly serves to offer high heat insulation performance and prevent flies, mosquitoes, dust, and rain water entering into the warehouse.

As an experienced docking solutions provider, we can design and produce two styles of dock shelters for customers to choose from.

Pillow Type Dock Seals and Shelters
Construction

Our pillow type dock shelter is composed of three high quality sealing columns. Its surface is made of high density polyester, while the inner is filled with good quality sponge. Yellow guide strip is attached at the front surface of the columns in the left and right side.

Optional designs
To match up with trucks with lower height, the dock shelter can be optionally designed with an additional top curtain. Also optional are yellow colored, finish-scale style strips to increase rubbing and sealing effect, and protect the sealing columns.
To match up with doors with width over 2500mm, our loading dock seals can be craft with trapezoidal side sealing columns so as to ensure perfect fit with the door width.

Installation
Our range of dock shelter can be mounted on a steel structure with liner frame, or a concrete wall. It can not be mounted onto hollow brick walls. It features an easy installation by tapping screws and plug bolts.

Standard width of side columns: 300mm
Standard height of top column: 300mm

Cover Type Dock Seals and Shelters
Construction

Our cover type dock shelter consists of a front curtain, which is one top curtain and two side curtain, and curtains around. The front curtain is made of double-layer 3.0mm high density polyester fiber with yellow guide strip. While the curtains around is made of 1.0mm high density polyester fiber. The curtains will form a folding wing style sealing when the truck packs in.

The frame of our dock shelter is made of crush-proof galvanized steel and aluminum alloy. Spring is also used to balance the frame.

Installation
The same as our pillow type dock shelters, this style of dock equipment can be easily installed onto a steel structure with liner frame or a concrete wall, by tapping screws and plug bolts. Please notice that our loading dock seals are not designed to be installed onto hollow brick walls.

Usage
Our dock shelter could seal the truck by its retracted sealing curtain when the truck comes in. The driver should open the backdoor in 270 degrees, fix the door by hooks, and then drive the truck reversely according to the yellow guide strips. When the truck gently hits the platform, the truck will be completely sealed.
