Choosing the Right Seal or Shelter for Your Needs
Choosing the right dock seal or shelter is the key to solving your environmental control needs. But there are no "off-the-shelf" solutions. Your situation is unique. Learn more about the factors you should consider when deciding which seal or shelter is right for you.
Frommelt dock seals provide a tight compression seal around the trailer top and sides for the highest sealing efficiency. As with all foam dock seals, access to loads on the trailer can be restricted by foam protrusion into the trailer opening. Seals also typically fit smaller door openings up to 9’x10‘ and incoming truck sizes that are relatively consistent.
Frommelt loading dock shelters give full, unobstructed access to loads on trailers, but usually provide lower sealing efficiencies than a seal.* Shelters are able to handle a large variety of incoming trucks including those with tailgates or other extensions and are appropriate for facilities with larger door openings up to 10’x10’.
*The Eliminator™-GapMaster™ II offers the sealing efficiency of a foam dock seal and the full access benefit of a dock shelter. Learn More
Frommelt Under-leveler Seals complete the fourth side of the environmental control seal by sealing the dock leveler pit. Optional components can be added to seal additional air gaps at the corners of the leveler and leveler lip.
The RainGuard® RG-3000 provides the tightest available seal across the top of a trailer to minimize the amount of water, wind, or dust able to enter a facility.
Frommelt offers both metal and fabric hoods that help to protect your dock seal headers from the build-up of heavy rains, snow, or ice.
