Dock Seals

A Quick Guide to Loading Docks & Seals

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.

Benefits of Dock Seals & Shelters

• Prolong Life of Dock Equipment Seal out moisture, dust and elements that reduce equipment life
• Save Money On Energy Costs
• Seal in warehouse heating & cooling
• Reduce Employee Injury and Absenteeism Seal out wind, rain, ice and dust that cause employee illness and accidents
• Reduce theft. Close the gap between truck and door, and eliminate theft

No matter how well-built your loading dock is, there is likely some issue you face that could go a little bit better. That’s when accessories like dock seals come into play.

Loading Dock Seals

Dock Seals
Loading dock seals protect your structure, trucks and products. A seal provides a tight closure between the truck and your loading dock. This keeps temperatures consistent and keeps insects, dampness and other things out. If you have a particularly delicate load, this can be vital.

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.

Dock Levelers
