Seals and Shelters Upgrades

Loading Dock Seals and Shelters play an important role in efficient warehousing and logistics, but over time, worn or damaged seals and shelters can lose their effectiveness. Poor sealing at the loading dock can lead to energy loss, product damage, safety hazards, diminished employee comfort, quality inspection concerns and contamination concerns.

Heavy rain, ice and snow buildup means more than just leakage onto your dock -- it can create a hazardous situation. It may be time for a seal/shelter upgrade if you notice:

  • Any damage to side frame/side pad or header
  • Open gaps or weak seals
  • Damage to header or side panels
  • Environmental damage or weather seal damage
  • Scrapes or missing parts from collisions with trailers, trucks, or forklifts

Minimize your dock seal repairs with high performance upgrades that reinforce the loading dock  shelter frames, head pad, dock seal hoods, curtains and bumpers. Heavy duty or rugged materials in addition to easily replaceable components can keep your loading docks running smoothly and safely year round.
