Dock Seals provide an effective seal between the truck trailer and building wall and are the best choice for a tight seal. Dock Shelters are used on larger door openings. Shelters are also best for loading docks serving a variety of trailer sizes. They allow full access to trailer openings and in many situations out-last Seals. A dock seal or shelter can help you save money on energy costs.

Loading Dock Seals
Dock Seals also can provide an airtight seal–whereas a dock shelter is not quite as tight. Since the seal is airtight, it does require a bit more attention to the size of the truck and the dock–there is less flexibility. Using a loading dock leveler may make it easier, depending on the situation. When everything comes together and fits, a dock seal provides the best possible protection to your most important loads.
